    In powerlifting you can wear a tight polyester/denim shirt that is made to take pressure off of your shoulders and pecs and allow you to lift some more weight. Unless your going into a powerlifting meet or have excisting shoudler/pec injuries i wouldn't bother getting one
    Best Meet @ Lifts@181:...............Best gym lifts
    Squat...- 403..........................Squat....- 395 w/belt
    Bench...- 303..........................Bench....- 300....Paused in meet - 281
    Deadlift.- 503.....Unofficial 513...Deadlift..- 490
    Total....- 1,203...IPF Class II......All done raw, Touch'n go bench
