#5

Curious - how much difference does a 1 ply suit make in your opinion?


#6

On which lift?

This might give you a idea my best lifts are
625/450/500 multi ply(242)
550/405/510 single ply(242)
540/390/495 single ply(220)
415/305/475 raw(220)


#7

Interesting. Wow.


#8

You have to really practice in gear. It’s alot of technique work. I work on mainly raw work in my offseason


#9

If anyone is wondering how my training is set up I have been doing it like this. Ok I have always loved working each lift and each muscle twice a week, but over time it gets to be to much. And once a week I feel I get good recovery but over time once a week feels like it’s not enough and I feel undertrained. So I came up with this to get the best of both worlds. I set my training up like this

Week A
Mon- lower
Wed- upper
Fri- lower

Week B
Mon- upper
Wed- lower
Fri- upper

Training this way I hit each lift and each muscle once every 4-5 days. I feel with this I hit the lifts often enough and also get good recovery in the process
