Stupid question but do you loosen your knee wraps after every set? Those buggers are tight.

Yes. They should be tight enough that you can barely breathe so definitely remove between sets

Far from an expert but I will say knee wraps can add quite a lot depending on how tight you wrap and your relative strengths. Personally with my longer limbs I tend to get quite a lot from knee wraps alone, and a month or two of training with wraps my bottom end raw strength takes a bit of a dive.

I personally wrap anything over 365 because at 40 yrs old my tendons aren't what they used to be... Knee sleeves are a nice happy medium to train with.. Tight enough to keep u safe at 500+.. But loose enough to be able to keep on the entire workout.. Then u use wraps at your meets for that extra pop out of the hole.

I went with a 46. I know that Titan 44s are too small to get over my arms, as the old shirt I have is a 44 and it has no chance of fitting anymore.

The 46 fits 16.75 arms which is about my arm size, although the chest is probably a bit loose but I'm not massively concerned.

Looking at the chart here:

Sizing Charts

You're probably looking at around a 50 seeing as you're 264lbs. Based on that 264lbs bodyweight it's giving the shirt a 50 inch chest and 18 inch arms, if you think that sounds about right then you're looking at a good competition fit. One size higher would be more comfortable and another size up would be easily wearable/not worth the money.

It's helpful to base it off measurements rather than absolute bodyweight 'cos like I said the 44 *should* fit me but I can't even get it over my upper arms. I ended up getting the 46 and basing it more off my measurements than absolute weight, it's more for a 100kg lifter but it'll do.
