Gear
 
I gotta tell you guys, I just love lifting gear. Knee Wraps, Belts, Bands, Briefs, Slingshots, Shirts, Suits everything!

I wouldn't be lifting at this level right now, if it wasn't for my trusty range of lifting contraptions and equipment.

VIVA EQUIPMENT!! :rockon:

No Slingshot, no bench for me. Simple.

And the spud belt. Love it.

Question. I keep tweeking my right knee and am thinking about buying something for knee support. Would wraps or a sleeves be a better option?

And to add to the discussion, I love my inzer belt. It works awesome and is of high enough qualtiy that I would imagine I'll never need to purchase another one again as long as I don't gain or lose too much weight.

There is no way I would still be competing if I had to lift raw. I would still be lifting, but not to max.

I would say both, I have a pair of Rehband knee sleeves I put on before squatting and if things get heavy I throw the knee wraps on. The sleeves keep everything nice and warm and a warm joint is a happy joint.

Also I'm a gear whore to, I like poly.

I've been noticing that as I get older and older, my hips start getting very beat up from squatting. I may break down and get some briefs one day...but I'm putting it off as long as I can.

I bought a pair of these to help with my granny hips they seem to help, they keep everything warm.

That's how it starts 77. Give it a few years and you'll be one of us, you've already got the

Spud Belt...a note of sizing:

Quote:

* Medium - 27-32
* Large - 33-38
* XL - 38-44
* 2XL - 44-50

I got a 2XL and it's 1/2 inch from being too big. I can't see this size necessary unless you weigh 375-400 pounds. I should have purchased an XL. The 2XL size isn't correct. It should probably read 52-60 inches.
