Which Double Ply Shirt Is Best For Me


#1

I’ll compete in the British GPC and the equipped division is only multiply…
I’d like to get my first bench shirt but I’m not sure which one is best for me.
I arch quite a bit, wide grip, generally touch the top of my belly, long arms, tuck a lot.

Ive heard that the inzer double ply shirts are great.

Also should I buy a 2nd hand shirt for training days and keep a brand new shirt intact until meet day? I’ve heard that poly shirt stretch after just a few sessions

Thanks in advance

Not to be pedantic, but it is not a REQUIREMENT that you wear a 2-ply shirt. “Multiply division” only means that it is PERMITTED. Personally, I would start in a looser Titan or Inzer single shirt. Particularly if you don’t have a longer period of time to learn it or an experienced crew.

It’s not a requirement but there’s no single ply category, so I’d compete with lifters with multiply shirts, might as well try to use same equipment

Do you have several experienced lifting partners? I wouldn’t try to use a shirt without a team.

Sounds like you plan to bomb out.

Good advice right here
