Sean's Powerlifting Journey

  1. 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.

  10. Hahahaha. No visible sweat stains, so I'm grateful for that. They definitely have sauna suit qualities.

  11. 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 lockout 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

    Being out sounds great sometimes but I have no idea what I'd do. Grass is always greener on the other side, right?

    It is weird! I dropped my wife off at school yesterday and heard the medical chopper whirring overhead and felt kinda sad for a second about not getting on one of those for a mission ever again, or even all the noise when you're on base... Memories...
