Got my suit today, fucker wont get past my big ass and thighs so I couldnt wear it.I could prolly get in it with help from a couple real strong motherfuckers but no dice.Will send it back for a slightly larger fit.I would rather get in the thing and have it a tad looser than comp fit than need 5 300lb+ guys to get me in it LOL, same as the bench shirt, I tried for like an hour to get in it with my family helping me but could not get it seated into my armpits.Oh well will just go one size bigger.Anyways hit some heavy ass squat doubles today, pretty good, used knee wraps for the 1st time, really helped me to be "aware" of the knees and shove them out hard.Hit 150kg for a double.Finished with heavy reverse crunches and my supp work.Good day.
That's the way they should be. If it fits , it's too big ! I know it sucks , but if you can some how squeeze in to those then get them on because they will losen up once you work them in.

The one's I have I can just slip on and they don't give enough suport. The one shirt I do have I always think it's too small , but it's starting to losen up - Can't get it on by myself for the life of me and when my training partner is there it's a workout on it's own getting that thing on ,LOL !

But - if you don't have anyone then I guess you gotta send it back , that sucks !

Got into my suit twice LOL fucking hell this thing is tight.I know I'll be able to hit depth with the straps down but with them up, jeez I dont know!! my hips are all marked up and so are my shoulders and traps. Is this shit normal?

With the straps up it fells like the suit wants to push my knees forward too, and I feel like I cant sit back into the squat, maybe I need to try it with a heavy bar on my back tho, dunno, I am not sure how its supposed to feel though.

Yes , this is normal.

You will want to start doing ( not telling you to ) Lot's of GM's so your strong enough to handle the forward motion. Once you get heavier the GM training will kick in and your lower back will be able to handle to weight and keep you upright.

Yes - The war wounds are normal , learn to love them !! If you don't get any it's too big.

Yeah cool, the guy who sold it to me is gonna see if he can find some contacts here in South Australia for me to lift with a bit, hope so that would be awesome, cos no way anyone in my family can yank it on, mind you we did get it 3/4 of the way on easy.

Cool, I actually thought that might be the case, gonna do my DE work this week then work up in the suit a bit.Probs with straps down to start off with.

Thanks for the feedback Ross and Talo, I was hoping you guys would chime in.

ME Bench Day

Well you guys prob wont believe this but I hit a bench PR last night haha no shirt either! I think I am finally getting the bar path down a bit better.I still dont do a good job of staying tight, but at least the bar path is ok, that has been my biggest obstacle in benching.Hit 105kg on the bar, a weight that has stapled me so many times I have lost count.Man it was good to get past that.My plan was to do doubles but when my supposed last set flew up easy I knew I had to keep going.Did my usual access work after, felt awesome all workout coulda done 100 more sets.Wes routine and diet have definately added alot of muscle to my frame too.I am loving it.

ME Bench Day 13/5/09
Bench 2s Up to 95kg 1x1 100kg, 105kg (PR)
Pullups x Lots again!!
Supp work

I've always wondered about that also. Some of the guys I train with do the same head raise thing..here's a video of Travis's 500 bench. He ALWAYS raises his head on the descent, but pushes his head back when he presses.


Definitely try to get your feet tucked back a little more. You have zero leg drive and not great leverage because of this.

I hear what your saying , Pity. But I've still seen guys lift almost 600lbs and lifting there head like that. So I think you should be able to still stay tight . Not saying it's right , but ...

One thing I try to do is visulize ripping the bar apart with my hands ( pulling them apart ) I find that and staying up on my traps helps.

An issue I have is using the legs to my advantage and getting a good arch.

Man , so much little things to do - that all add up to one great lift !

Still an amazing PR ,Hops.

This is another thing that I think is a personal choise . The two guys I train with both lift in the mid 400's ( closer to 500 ) . One is back and almost up on his toe's with a great arch. The other guy has his legs way out in front and can get some great drive , but smaller arch.
