I got another gear question, I think the post title kinda says it all. quick Background can be read in another of my recent post (which was very helpful! thanks to those who posted there!)
Soooooo… I was just pondering when is a good time to start competing in gear? I realize it is most likely an inevitability, and I figre I should do it right.
For more reference my current lifts are Squat 340 (gym lift), Bench 240 (competition), Deadlift 430(competition). As in my other post I’ll be squatting with wraps for the first time soon (pay day friday!) IN Competition on my bench I use metal all black wrist wraps; deadlift in competition only a bench singlet chalk and chucks.
My thinking, and obviously correct me if I’m wrong, thats why i’m posting, is that i should hit raw lifts of around 2x body weigth squat (198class-light 220 class, so 400ish); 1.5x bench; and 2.25-2.5x body weight deadlift.
Thanks in advance for helping out!
