  1. I definetly don't know what the hell I'm doing lol My gym owner will be giving me a hand. The few weeks after I get them in will be interesting.

    Side note: E-pharm Joint Force is the ****.

  2. Which Blast did you get? That's a good one to try to see if you want to continue with it. The seams are one thread wide, though. So it hurts exponentially more than a better made shirt with wider seams. More cutting than pressure. You'll definitely feel some pop, but what's nice is you don't have to change how you bench, the groove is where you want it.

    You'll have to let me know about the briefs!

  3. Actually just ended up ordering the Max dl suit tonight. I cant find my tape measure so I'll use one at my gym tomorrow. I'm looking at the standard blast or heavy duty blast. I'll grab my briefs then. Figure I'll wear the 34 briefs until I get my body weight where I want it and by that time I'll have the squat suit.

  4. sean, you're strong, really strong. why do you want to go to gear?

  5. It interests me, to be honest. I still intend to total elite raw before I give that up. Not fully commting to gear yet but want to test the waters. I've been having random money fall in my lap lately so now is my time to not feel guilty for blowing 150 on a suit.

  9. I'd say go with the HD Blast or the EHPHD. At least get something pretty good instead of a VERY minimal shirt.

    You figure the Blast gave me 25lbs from my meet bench, and I've popped a lot of material in the chest plate. It's nice that it's cheap, but it really doesn't last.

    Or just go with the Rage. The Rage costs the same as an EHPHD, but it's a better shirt. It's not hard to learn, like I said both of my brothers have gotten big benches finished in it, with zero prior shirt experience.

    OR call up or email the guys at Anderson Powerlifting, they'll walk you through it and get your Titan shirt PERFECT.

    Napalm, forgive me if I seem intrusive, but with your injuries, gear could be awesome for you. The original purpose of the supportive equipment was injury prevention. Even some light duty stuff could help stave off injury and provide a bit of overload and have you totaling bigger and feeling better.

    I did the same thing tax return. Made sure I bought myself some stuff. Rest went to bills and the fam.

    Joint force is a great product. It's great when just an area or two is aching.

    Yeah, I told myself I wasn't going to think about it until I squat 405 raw, which will prolly be July. I firmly believe that a solid foundation is needed before making the switch. I've literally seen guys who can't do 315 raw, but squat 500+ in gear.

    Obviously, Sean has the foundation.

    I'll be picking up some briefs sometime soon though.

    You're right. There's not much worse than Gene Rychlak struggling with 405 raw and being the first person to bench a grand. Props to you for wanting to have a foundation.

  14. I think Gene Rychlak has a midget in his bigass belly that helps him bench.

  15. Sean, I'm halfway through the cube and BL blew my mind yesterday. I've been listening to Tate/wendler for years about stance width. BL is saying to narrow it a bit so adductors aren't in the movement so much.

    The gist of it was wide stance (me), lots of adductor = mcl pain.

  16. I had a semi wide stance before. Second I brought it in, it allowed my knees to open and I had a stronger squat. Before, my abductors prevented me from hitting proper depth it felt. Lilly is cool ****. Reminds me of Wendler a bit.

    I had rodja take a look at my opener, he suggested I move it in a bit as well. I'm gonna play around next week and narrow it and work up to my opener

  18. I think it'll be a positive difference. I wouldn't anticipate a drop in strength or anything like that.

    Take a front vid and look at the angle of your shins in relation to your foot placement. You want them vertical and not angled.

  20. If I recall, his chins seemed fairly vertical compared to mine

  22. I gotta forward lean but stay behind my toes still and weight off of my toes. I just didn't have the hip mobility to squat with Napalms semi-widish stance.

    When you're right, you're right brother. I've been aware of where my knees are forever. My left hammy is preventing me from sitting back as far as I need to. Pulled it dl'ing about 4 months ago and it won't get better.

    I've been able to squat almost pain free, and haven't had to drop any weight so I'm going with it.

    After nats, I have a number of things to look at; a squat technique makeover is one of them.

  25. Sean, I would say our knee angles are pretty similar.

    AZ, I have a front vid in my gay uncut log - worst log ever by the way...

    Go take a look and let me know what you think, I'm on my phone at my kids v-ball tourney now...
