    Oh an by the way considering getting powerlifting gear like shirt an suit.. If I want to get to IPF world juniors in 2012 it'd be handy to learn...

    Opinions an comments/advice please?

    Emailed mike from lifting large an he said I'd be size 40 suit and 42 shirt, Titan gear would likely be my preference as already got there titanium wrist and knee wraps.

    Nice speed upper!!

    Titan single ply is good for both bench and squat!!

    For deadlift suits down the track go with metal.
    Squat briefs only 625 @ 210
    Bench geared 525 @ 210

    Any specific suits would be good for someone never used one but willing to work to use it well?

    I'd ask the guys you train with. That way you can get advice from people who have actually used them. Otherwise, ask in the PL section.

    This also has some good info in it:

    Not sure you will need to ask others.

    The key is to NOT buy it tight.......it will piss yu off and youll never learn it (or will learn after a looooooong time) so get it fairly loose and then tighten as you get better in it........then tighten again........3 months later again.

    My first 2 ply bench shirt was loose as hell and I learned to get 100lb out of it.......slowly tightened it up and got 160+ while it was till piss easy to put on myself.

    Wow! That a lot out of a shirt. What fed u lift in?

    So by loose what size would u order in suit an shirt versus what u measure? I measure a size 40 for both, mike from liftinglarge recommended to go with 40 in the suit and 42 in shirt. Thoughts?

    Good job on the deadlift PB!!!! Also, the GM's looked good IMO. The only thing I would say to do is throw your hips forward at the top by squeezing your glutes. It's almost like when your deadlifting.

    Yeh I am a tad uncertain of using it as a ME movement but we shall see... I'm sure I'll do it at some stage haha

    Right plan change for tomorrow's ME upper. Have realized no gyms in the area I'm staying (gone away for a couple of days with the wife, good to get away but not the same as Aussie would have been!!) have a proper power rack so no floor press. Will do CGBP instead for my ME Upper tomorrow! This again will be for a 3RM, haven't got one on this exercise so should be fun!
