    Those records are suprising for the 242 class, teens or not. You'll destroy those records Stump, easily.

    openers are

    Stumprrp are you squatting in the suit at all?

    stump i bet if you pinned the straps back on that v-type you'd get even more pop off the floor with it. i don't know if i'd change it up this close though...and i don't know if USAPL allows that. just a thought.
