I started training WSBB roughly 2 months ago and my numbers have been going up like crazy. Keep in mind that my raw bench is probably around 325 right now.
So I put my Inzer Rage on today for the first time. It went really well. Hit 365 off of a 2 board. Then I touched 405, but I could not get a full lockout. A couple things happened. First, I ran out of breath on the way down, it just took so long to touch that I had to re-inhale, which kind of threw me off. Second, ended up with what I have read is usual burst blood vessels around the chest, but the funny thing is that I ended up with some of that on my gut also! Third, the pain is amazing, it really does not bother me, but it does feel as though someone is going to kill you with a giant bear hug. Overall the shirt felt pretty good, there was some tearing noises as I got low to the chest because the shirt is extremely tight. I feel as though I really understand the motion of the shirt. I hope to be able to get roughly 100lbs out of the shirt by the time I have a competition in 8 weeks. Overall though, for a first time in a shirt, touching with 80lbs over max is pretty good, right?
I would like to cut off roughly 2 inches from the sleeves because they are just too long and bunching up on my short arms, any suggestions. Will it fray? Do I need to get it sown?
Any other feedback or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
Oh, and I love this forum!
