I would love to get back in gear, but I have a lot of work to do to get the most out of it. Part of me wants to keep doing raw meets until I best my best geared total (1925) in a raw with knee wraps meet. I will work the gear back in and just keep getting stronger. Since the IPA and RPS allow knee wraps in the raw division I'll start adding that in as well. I have a lot of numbers I want to hit geared and raw, so I'll just keep plugging away. The most important thing is to just keep enjoying what I'm doing. This also comes down to training partners. I have one very solid guy now, but obviously more guys like that would make it a lot easier to start throwing around heavy geared squats in my basement. I did the train in gear by yourself thing before and had a few close calls.
Well first off good luck with the new additon to the family. I understand about the whole training gear with limited people. It can be very hard, and sometimes too dangerous for its worth. At the end of the day lifting is something you have to enjoy, raw, gear, it doesnt really matter. Keep training, because if your anything like me, knowing you left some weight on the platform is going to drive you nuts!!!!
