Yes! I agree. The reason I got to thinking about this was a recent question Ltl posed. I gave the answer which applied to me 6 months ago 'I use gear, cos im beat up'. But then I realised I'm not beat up any longer. Actually I feel fine! So without that hang up, I may now be able to concentrate on the future. Basing everything I do on either suits/shirts/slingshots/briefs may have a detrimental effect on my future development. Or worse, am I setting myself up for more and potentially worse injuries?

Can I really expect to be Squatting 300kg when my raw squat isn't much over 220kg? I'm not sure, perhaps I can or perhaps not.

I would shoot this question to the owners of SSPT and see what there thoughts are. Supreme Sports Performance & Training I've emailed them questions in the past and they're always happy to answer them. I've also trained at this gym with these guys, and their gym is nothing more than a group of absolute beasts. They are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of lifting and I trust their advice/opinions.
That's awesome man, much appreciated!
