I don't believe that anyone is "meant" to be one way or the other. It's a choice the lifter has to make.

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Top Gym lifts:
Squat: 415lbs
Deads: 440lbs
Bench: 315lbs

I've been told that people are sometimes much better at one than the other. I'm hoping to be one of those that blossoms in gear, lol. As for knowing before you actually get some gear on, I have no idea how you would do that.

Get as strong as you possibly can, then add gear.

I'm with Swede. I want to see how far I can I can get raw. Even if there was some matrix that said I'd be better geared, I'd still want to max myself out raw before ever trying gear.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
