    Very smart to get the slippers. They make a world of difference and take out about half of the effort needed to get the gear in place.

    They also don't make you the guy carrying grocery bags to the gym and the meet. I wish I had bought suit slippers with my suit.

    I tried a double ply hardcore on without the slippers and it was a miserable/tiring 15 minutes, even with help. Suit slippers and a few couple pounds less and I should fit into it a bit easier.

    Imagine having a pair of double ply briefs underneath that. Part of the reason I can't break parallel until I hit ~600 is that I can't move the suit up further by hand.

    Good god lol. I had a couple inches to go to get it into my crotch. I'll be sticking with single ply for now. Maybe after the usapl meet ill shell out for some more gear. I might try them out next Thursday straps down with my squat and get a game plan together. Have you looked over Lilly's shirted bench template in his book?

  7. I just saw that the Massachusetts state squat record, raw, in the 220 class is 551. Why the **** didn't I remember to look this up before my meet. Why didn't I take a 4th attempt. Why didn't I just squat more than 550.

    Same thing almost happened to my buddy in his first meet recently. It was RPS and he went and decided out of curiosity to see what the bench record was and realized he had it in the tank, but if he didn't ask he wouldn't have known.

    That sucks man. Now you can go back and kill that record.

  10. I can't afford to get bigger. Had to drop a few hundred bucks on new uniforms because they were too small now and body armor couldn't fit under them lol Not buyin more uniforms again

    On a happier note, I acquired a 1, 2, and 3-Board from my basement.

    I will tell everyone who listens to get bigger! And many people who don't listen or didn't know they needed the advice.

  18. Cube Method W3 RE Deads

    Warmup: Foam roll, banded mobility work, lunges, banded GMs

    Deficit Deads (45# plate width)
    365x8x2

    4" Block Pull

    Then I did some band thing I saw Chris Duffin doing. I'll try to find the video. Light orange band attached on a support on one side of the room looped around my waist, another on the other end of the room held by my hands and standing evenly stretched out in the middle. Used hip drive and lats to erect myself upright.

  19. Your RE deficits are my ME. *sigh*

    My vagina, it's formidable.

    Good work, I'm not finding a single Cube day I don't like.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  20. EliteFTS is having a 50% sale on straps. Idk if I need to spend money but I have to buy some new med balls for work so might toss some in on the order if anyone in here thinks any are worth it. Maybe even just for overload or down the road but I am a sucker for EliteFTS sales.

    Relatively narrow stance for squat if that matters and any wrist wraps suggestions would be appreciated as well.

    I would get the ones that have thick stripes black/white/black. They're a bit more soft and have more of a stretch to them. My heavy knee wraps are stiff as ****.

    I like the longer wrist wraps. Lemme find links

    Edit: I'd go with the normal knee wraps (orange) I personally prefer 2.5M so I can cross wrap and not struggle to tie off or slip it under a turn. I know herder has some 2M and Rodja 2.5 I believe.

    Crap, 30% off suits lol I would have gone with metal if I had known that.

    Send me PES shirt and I'll send you my Elite heavies lol

  23. I got the 60mm wraps, like em.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  24. That's correct, I use 2m knee wraps and I went hog wild and got the 36in wrist wraps. I like shorter knee wraps because it takes less time and effort to wrap them. I wouldn't mind seeing what a longer wrap is like, though. I like my stretchy wrist wraps, I just feel like I can get them tighter. Be sure to check with your fed on the required maximum length of your wraps. For instance, I believe you are no longer raw in the IPA if your wrist wraps are over 60cm.

  25. Ya I will have to check some regulations and I have some wrist wraps but they are long and cast me up almost too well. I may grab some lighter wrist wraps for training purposes at least.
