  1. Check lengths for knee wraps too. APA was 3M. I believe USAPL is 2.5M (not allowed for raw though). APA and RPS are the only Feds I'm currently aware of that allow knee wraps in raw lifts.

    What fed is this?

    USPA has a classic raw division that allows knee wraps up to 2.5m fyi Sean.

    USAPL is 2m.

    Small meet and it was Raw United, not really a fed atm I believe or even sure what they'd fit in. Hoping to find something else around here but the VA region seems a little sparse...have found some just got to try and figure out which is best fit based on timing, distance, etc.

    Thanks for the input though.

    Damn. Congrats on the swift quit. Don't get discouraged if you lose 15-20 off of your total from ditching the Copenhagen. It'll come back quickly.

    Nah I'll be good. I quit back in August with no issues until work was a hell storm ~2 weeks ago. No biggie quitting, saying it just makes me follow through though.

  17. Cube Method W3 ME Bench

    Warmup:
    Pullaparts, door frame spider walk, push-ups, banded pulldowns, 135/165/185/225

    2-Board Bench
    265x2x5

    DB Bench
    100x8/8/7

    JM Press
    135x8
    145x8x2

    OHP (guy at work was doing his 5/3/1 sets so I stole those weights)
    110x12
    125x10
    140x8

    Rolling Tri Ext
    40x10/10/8/7

    Cable Crunches
    180x15x5

    2-Board was pretty hard. It was my first time doing it with a load over 60% so my bar path was a little fcked on the first set. The last 4 sets felt great, but hard. I felt an emphasis on the elbow flare for *******.

    I had wanted to do flat bench or close grip after the 2-board for reps as the Cube states, but I had to share the rack.

    My shoulders feel healed, but weak as hell. It's very disappointing but oh well. I'll build them back up.

    I'm off work tomorrow and I plan on lounging around and not doing a damn thing. DE squat then some reverse bands at ~80% on Thursday and I'll hit up the gyms prowler.

    Bench shirt will be in Thursday. If it fits I plan on resetting the Cube back to Week 1 and starting it off geared and applying BL's 9-week shirted template.

    I'm nervous haha I have a strong feeling the next couple of weeks will be odd. Looking at the bench template-I won't even be putting the shirt on until the 4th week. Deadlifts he said will always be in full meet gear, including speed days. Squats, I'll play by ear.

  20. Interesting, man. Are you going to reset with new weights, and if so how will you determine them?

    I had never considered running it a little while then resetting to run the full 9. I'm totally stealing that shyt.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  21. I'm only resetting because of the gear and to have the 9 week template for shirted bench line up with the rest of the program, otherwise I'd continue. The advice I was given on the Cube FB page by Corey Hayes was to just get a feel for the weights since I don't have a geared 1RM. If its too light-add more. If DE days are too heavy, take off weight. If any geared lifters here (Rodja) have some better advice, lemme know what ya think.

  31. Reset the Cube next week with gear. Establish 1RM's in gear week of July 8th, week of the 15th I'll take completely off (I'll be on leave back in my home state with family) Then see where I'm at and continue training for the USAPL Boston Open in September.

    Your first wave of gear should just be focused on adjusting to the restriction and the bar groove. You almost have to learn to set up all over again as your mobility is restricted from raw benching. Don't worry about touching for a couple of months as your CNS and joints need time to acclimate to the increased loads. Other than that, I like to do a 2:1 weeks of shirt:raw work. I usually do floor press on the raw week to let my back rest as it is often what takes the brunt of the pain while I bench.

    This right here. The anchor points on my tri's have been marked for a couple months now, and I'm starting to see some bands of bruising staying around for awhile.

    Agree with Rodja, too. Work hard to stay on your traps and keep your arch.

    And play with your grip, too. With the shoulder support from the shirt, you might be able to widen it with no discomfort. I go middle finger on the ring. Wider than that and I get no ******* power.

    True story.

    Good point on the wide grip, I brought mine from between the inner and outer ring to middle finger on the ring. Made a huge difference in being able to touch weight and press it.

    I appreciate the advice man. I realize my percentages being applied to the Cube will be pretty much non-existent because I have no idea what the gear will be able to provide me. I like the idea of the 2:1 shirt:raw and floor pressing. I plan on making full use of board presses. The next 9 weeks will be very new. Hopefully I can get it on lockdown for September.

    I'm curious to see how it will be for me hitting depth..

    Herder/Nomz-Thanks for the tips guys. I'll see what my grip wil be like. I'm hoping to god the shirt even fits me.

  37. Lol. If it's small, don't do what I did. Send that ish back. I think your depth is always strong, you'll just have to get a feel for where depth is again in gear. When I tried to bury my reps, my knees would shoot forward and I'd wiggle like hell. Funny looking stuff. That and my being a weak puss c are why I cut my squats high.

  38. Hopefully it's a tad loose, you can always get a seamstress to tailor it to you, or get smaller gear.

    Looser gear is easier to learn, and then tighten it up when you have it dialed in.
