oh okay but it looks like I'm still going to get 1 because my coaches are stressing it especially for my weight class

they did say you need to practice but its almost here the meet and they said just to get the cheapest ones...really theres no point, and but to be honest i hate football powerlifting with those ****in snatches and that ****, we overtrain so i don't do any upper body there and bodybuilding upper body splits at home...tell me if this is overtraining on squats.... tuesday is heavy double- 2 warmups sets of 10 and then 10/8/8/6/4/4/2/ light weight failure reps and they increase our heavy double 10-20 pounds every week lol and then we squat 3 days later doing 4 sets of 5 heavy with 3 warm ups and front squats and we will do over head squats in there

I hope your experienced with the equipment your going to use. You cant just hop in suits and expect to know how to lift with them. If your familiar with the suit then just go have fun and lift some heavy ass weight.

Choose a really light opener on all of your lifts....missing your first attempt because it was too heavy will take all of your confidience away for the rest of the meet...choose weights that you could hit if you had the flu, you can always go up on your second and third attempts. i have seen more elite athletes bomb out of meets because of this one thing. Nobody cares what your opener is, its where you finish(third attempt) that matters

Don't bother getting the suits at least to use this time. When you do get them spend the money on a quality pair!!! Some of these guys make great points on change in technique and your lifting plane will change as well. All things to consider and if you have issues adjusting(with the gear) your confidence will be shaken and we don't want that!!! Good luck!!!

Max gym lifts are a bit different than max comp lifts.
All the best and go get 'em
