Under my arms and the back of my tri’s are bruised and cut to bits. I think the shirt’s tight. I’m very broad across the shoulders so it took almost 10 mins to even get it so we could start to pull it down over my nipples.
So I think it’s plenty tight. Plus I’ve already gotten 40+lbs outta it and I was still half an inch from touching.
I’ve hit 130kg off a single board in the gym and repped 115kg for 5 so the 115kg that stands as my PR probably isn’t what I’d hit fresh raw but it’s what I done in comp so it’s what I’m counting.
The shirt may have been plenty tight in the arms, but was pretty loose in chest. Closed-back polys usually need to be pretty tight across the chest to get much pop.
Don’t get me wrong- I think a shirt as loose as yours has a place in your training- lighter rep work, an intermediate shirt when you’re warming up, or just for getting the hang of equpped benching etc. But, going forward, consider a tighter shirt. [/quote]
I agree. Use this to learn how a shirt “works” for lack of a better term. When you get your fury it will be time to have some fun.
