Yeah, there is that. 80% for me really would be right on the bone. I'll be starting lighter though, to ease myself into it. I need to keep up with the rest of the weekly pressing as well, so I'll be doing myself a favour if I work in slowly.

One of the lads here mentioned that he saw Donnie Thompson warm up with 700 raw for squats like most guys warm up with 135! Clearly, his raw strength is phenomenal and it must be because he trained it along with the gear. At least that's what makes sense!
Yeah that's awesome. No doubt he wouldn't be able to Squat what he does equipped if he couldn't Squat that much raw.
