Well the next WABDL competition is about a month away on July 14. I am seriously contemplating learning to use a shirt for this competition. My raw bench sits at 405 touch and go (as of yesterday) and I feel I can be quite competitive in my weight class (181) if I learn to master the shirt. My question is should I use this month to train using the shirt and hopefully master it before the comp or should I just compete raw?
I attached a video of my last comp 2 years ago its not the greatest angle but its all I got. I can’t remember if this was my opener at 314.16lbs or my second set at 336.20lbs. In case you were wondering, the last 2 years have been spent rehabing a shoulder injury and a back injury.
I am finally at a point where I am making decent progress on my bench and feel confident. My form has changed since the last comp, and if I can get a video of my recent lifts it should be reflected. I have adjusted my arch and my arms are closer to my body.
