Both. I compete in single-ply and multi-ply competitions so I have to use both. Can't use canvas in the single-ply meets.

What I look for in any suit is the stopping power and compression. I squat down slow and blast out of the whole, so I need a suit that stops me and compresses my body. This way I can get a blast out of the whole using that compression. Now, the compression can make it hard to hold your breath but who cares, blast the weight up fast and you will have time to blow out air on the way up.

For single-ply: Titan Super Centurion with Titan Centurion briefs. It has very little give in the material which helps with the compression Iím looking for.

For multi-ply: Ginny Phillips Double Thick Canvas with Metal Ace Pro briefs. That combination is like doing a standing leg press. If I wasn't able to use the canvas, I prefer the Titan Boss suit. Itís the closest to canvas that a poly suit comes.

The truth? Being a BADASS!
I like pushing my body to its limits and doing things that very few people in the world can do. It gives me the greatest feeling of accomplishment. Thatís why I set some outrageous goals for myself, just to test and push those limits. The best thing about this sport is when I reach a goal; there is always more weight to add!

When not getting ready for a meet, once every eight to nine weeks, raw. Triples, down to a max double whatever the weight.

When getting ready for a meet, I like to do a twelve week cycle leading into the meet. I will do them on the first or second week in the cycle and again on the fifth or sixth week. The first time I do them is raw with a top-end (bar) weight 90 Ė 95% of my suited max. We use enough bands to get 235 lbs. of help in the whole. The second time in the meet cycle is done fully suited to a single 105 Ė 120% of my suited max. This is for CNS overloading to get my body used to handle the heavy, heavy weights again.

Hi Joe,

How to you approach nutrition? Do you eat a certain way or not worry about it too much?

Truthfully, I don't worry too much about it. I do make sure I eat enough protein but pretty much I eat what I want.

The only time I watch my diet is when I have to cut weight for a meet. I then just eat grilled chicken salads for a week and I'm good.
