    Unfortunately, while it's too late for the contest, I did a strict chin (from pause at full hang to chin over bar) today with bodyweight + 135, where bodyweight is ~165-167.

    Imho, a full range of motion chin isn't simply full hang to 'chin to/above' bar, it's from full hang (and a real full hang, not a drop into a hang to get rebound energy out of the hole) to upper...

    No, I'd say my comparison is more honest.

    The difference between the current raw record in bench and shirted is ~300 lbs. As a percentage of the raw lift, that's TREMENDOUS.

    I posted on this in that other thread, so won't repeat my words here again.

    However, there is an element of injury prevention inherent in something like a bench shirt.

    No offense to some, but saying 'do you understand sporting gear' is kind of silly, imho.

    The 'point' of most sporting gear is to minimize injury and maximize protection of the player.

    I'll suggest two things.

    1) Personal trial and error in and of itself probably isn't the best way to figure out what 'works' best, simply because there are too many training variables to consider,...
