First Contest In 10 Years!

Got the ole’ bug a few weeks back when a lifting budy emailed me a promo for a local powerlifting contest. I am 36 and have not competed since I was 26 - tore my pec in my last meet (in the damn WARM UP room) so I will definitely get waxed as I have no real bench.

I just want to match my “old” PR’s from when I was in my 20’s in squat and deadlift, and perhaps use it to kind of “warm up” for the masters division three years from now.

My question - last time I competed, it was pretty much a champion Z suit, or an Inzer. Now there are dozens of companies - any input on if the newer ones are worth the extra bucks? I can pick up a Champion for around $40 it seems. Thanks!
