    Anyways the OP sure as hell shouldn't be using gear especially with those numbers... not until he milks every last drop out of his raw lifts.
    Man I thought you actually got the hint and left the thread. But I guess not. Every time I read your post I just think about the dbags that think they have great form and are awesome at lifting like johnnyroundbackdeadlift or idonttouchmychestbenchcuztheys ayitsbad.

    Except for how rodja is very likely more experienced when it comes to weight training, more experienced (and accomplished) as a geared (and likely raw) PLer.

    Which is completely disregarding the years he went to school studying it.

    Well, been lifting since I was 11, 35 now. Had allot of good advice starting out. My 860 squat is at my youtube, Fryfamily1978. That was back in 99 when I weighed around 300 and before I got shot in the stomach and decided to diet down. A experienced lifter can add hundreds to a lift with the proper suit. My warning about to much leg drive is for any numbers. If it's heavy to him, that's the same as heavy to me. Overpowering your back in a dead with your legs is asking for injury. I know. I fought a good 5-6 years with a bulged disc that would send me to the floor whenever I would go above 400. I'm better now but the 590 triple I was doing (easy at the time) destroyed me for years. That was ten years ago. Suit lifting is way different than raw. Be very cautious as you go up in weight, the suits can make you pull in directions your unready for when your new.

    So from your guys experience, is there any gear out there that allows you to keep your same groove or close to it? Or is it just completely different?

    It's a different experience dude. I kept my normal squat stance with the single ply. Switched to sumo for deads to get a bit more out of it, actually I prefer sumo now for raw as well. Benching is completely different.

    Definitely keep building your base. Gearing up without the requisite core strength is a recipe for disaster. Especially the upper back. That comes into play in all three lifts.

    I'm never willing to put money on anything, which is why I said likely.

    But, considering that I've seen your posting around here, and know that Rodja was weight training for years as a MMA fighter and now as a PLer, and is damn close to his elite total. I'm pretty sure that my statement is accurate.
