I had a chance to get the shirt semi-fitted last night. Had alot of trouble getting the sleeves up over my forearms. I’m not entirely sure that the shirt was seated up into my shoulder/armpits right, but either way, the bubble on this thing is enormous. The shirt locks up at about a 5 board for me!!! I tried on my KK DD as a comparison and that’s more like a 3 board.
I would guess it would take a ridiculous amount of weight to get this thing to touch. I worked with Dizenzo before with the KK DD and he had me touching light weights, but even with technique, this just seems insane. I’m going to consult with Ken Anderson and I might move to a 50 if he has it available. thoughts?[/quote]
Give it some time to break in. The first time I had my current meet shirt on (Katana), I couldn’t touch 515 in it. At the time, my pr was in the high 400s. With some work in the shirt and allowing it to break in, I can now touch in the mid to high 400s. I’ve had the same experience with every Titan shirt I’ve used the first time out – thinking that it is too tight. Each time, they break in and I get to the point where I can touch weights that are appropriate for an opener.
