Neither one of those are going to hold true each time. Lot depends on what road they took to get into gear. As long as a guys overall strength dictates the level of gear he uses, he will have appropriate carry over. Meaning a guy who benches 300lbs probably doesnt need to be in a multiply bench shirt. I see this all the time, people over gear their strength. Your first shirt you want it to be something that is easy to learn and touch in.

Start with a used, and lose SK if that is the shirt you decided to go with. If its tight it will take a good bit of weight to touch. It took a 600# for me to touch in my SK and it wasnt tight by gear whore standards lol.
