I always post my videos in my journal, but since a lot of you prob don't go there I figured I would share this here. I have been comepeting in powerlifting for 9 years now and have prob done over 30 meets. I have never competed without using at least one piece of gear(bench shirt and/or SQ/DL suit). The meet I will be lifting in on Dec. 3rd I will be competing in a belt+wraps. I am really excited. The training has been very different as opposed to getting ready for equipped meets. The stress level going in is way down because you don't have to worry about what weight you can touch or how much it will take to break parallel. I will be competing @165 and that's what I weighed today.
