    All the guys at the gym have titan sleeves.


  2. My only personal experience is what EFS and I like them. However, my warm briefs from Rheband are the same material as their sleeves and it's good, which I assume is similar to Titan

  3. I got in my Titan sleeves yesterday. The material feels really good, but I have yet to train in them. Bonus is that they're from Anderson and they'll get to you in 2 days.

    That's what the guys at the gym told me.

    But they're like $60 a piece.

  5. Does APF allow you to compete in sleeves?

    Nope Edit, let me check, they might for eq...

    The rule book only specifies what length of wraps are legal. I can't remember seeing anyone with sleeves...

    Yeah I don't remember seeing anything in the rule book about it, or seeing people use them.


    All the USAPL guys say it should be legal for raw PLing as long as they don't add any support to the lift (rebound)

  10. I think sleeves are allowed for raw, but not wraps.

    Don't know, getting some anyway to make my knees feel better.

    USAPL allows neoprene sleeves, Tommy Kono, SBDs, Rhebands, and Titans.

    Probably neoprene.

    Preferably for both.


    APF Raw.

    APF Raw.
    SBD sleeves are getting a lot of positive reviews lately, they are longer and thinner than rhebands, and more expensive. People are ordering 2 sizes small for competition and more pop.

  15. So, is it worth paying extra for the Titans or going with the EFS Heavies for $25??

    Super Heavies are like $35 right now.

    Find out if they are legal.

    Randoja made a comment about EFS quality lately, mine are in great shape though, I bought them last year.

    It doesn't say anything about it in the rule books (according to Napalm).


    Edit: did some Googling, looking like no. Which is ridiculous.


    But I should, however, get some wrist wraps. APF allows 1M x 8cm (I think). Which ones are good lol?

    You want cast-like or springy?

  19. I have elitefts normal and I get spring and support out of them. Nothing crazy, but definitely makes a difference.

    I don't know about the wear and tear as I rarely use them; I save them for max efforts.

    I've never used any wrist wraps, hell I've only used knee wraps sparingly.


    What kind of spring does springy give you?

    What's your best bench?

    I like em more springy as I'm not a huge bencher and I use them on squats as well, though I have used more cast-like ones when I was squatting heavier in a suit.

    Just imagine a cast, it won't allow much motion and is very supportive. A springier wrap is less so supportive and allows more movement but springs back.

    251 at a meet.


    I squat with a false grip so I don't think it would matter for squat.

    I thought they were all cast like, but I guess I want springy.

    I squat with a false grip, still like my wrist wraps for over 405 though.

    I like these in long: http://www.inzernet.com/detail.asp?P...PS_IRON_WRISTZ

    Been using some old APTs lately though, I should have some more coming in, I could send you a pair if you want to wait a week.

    Yeah, if you don't mind that would be awesome!

  25. Love my Inzer Z's. Definitely springy but there's plenty of support. I can get maybe 10 degrees of flexion and extension when I pull them tight. I don't need something to take over for my wrists, I just want a little insurance.

  26. RE Upper:


    Warmup: simple 6, EFS pullapart series x 1


    Pre: 2 Jack3d Micro, 4 Max Pump, 1 Green Magnitude
    Intra: 1 BCAA/SAA

    CG (2" from slick) 1 Board Press: 185 x 10, 165 +40 x 10, 165 +80 x 5 -- 165 +40 x 4

    Dips: +45 x 5 x 3, +45 x 4

    a1. Wide NG Behind Neck Pulldown: 90 x 12, 110 x 12, 110 x 11, 100 x 12
    a2. Strict DB Row: 60 x 6, 70 x 6 x 3

    Holy jesus the pump....


    Koklov Press: 75 x 8 x 2

    b1. Lateral Raise: 20 x 10 x 3
    b2. Reverse Grip Curl: 40 x 10 x 3

    Ouch, that pump.


    Wrist was fighting to give out on the RG curls today, besides that everything felt fine. Dips were awful, but that's how they're supposed to be! Overall, it was a good workout. I severely underestimated that 80# Chain on the last set, so I hopped off dropped the chain and pumped out 4 more. A little more delt volume today than usual, but they needed the extra work. ME DL on Monday, can't wait for that.

    No gym Friday, it was pouring rain and I didn't really feel like it (read: I'm a lazy bum).
