    No doubt we all can tweak things with our lifts, but what you did with those squats is great as is. More where that came from once you get certain aspects squared away.

    Yea I switched, I've had this suit for awhile but stopped using it because I had lost so much weight. I'm up to 242-244 in bodyweight now, so it's tighter on me. I like the suit, but it is a bitch to get off lol.

    Thanks Coke , yeah I think this will be a PR meet for me if training continues to go like it has been going.

It kept trying to pull me forward. I'm gonna use the canvas suit the remainder of the training cycle and compete with it in May.)

    Nothing wrong with trying out different gear. Since your going to stick with canvas, just wait and see what your results are from using the suit at the meet...Hopefully a PR!!!
