Talking to JB I see he only trains straps down on squats. I was mistaken in thinking it was full suit. Maybe this is what I was missing in general...

He also has been training in bench suit for quit sometime, but remarked that this was a unique circumstance because of a pec issue.

How does Louie define maximal effort? I imagine working towards a max single, double or triple? Or perhaps a max single for the day such as what the Bulgarians did?

Apologies for the late reply -

As Lt said, max effort is 90%+ of 1RM. I rotate max effort exercises every week. Lastly I did not squat down to the Ball. Someone forgot to remove the bloody thing (!)

Regarding gear, dynamic effort work is done either raw or in briefs or suit with straps down. Max effort work is done either raw or suited. Getting into gear regularly is a good idea - I use my bench shirt one or twice a month, and squat suit and briefs more often.

Much depends on what your specific needs are. If developing raw strength is an issue, then work raw - if getting used to gear before a meet is an issue, work on that. Forget about a fixed program or hard and fast rules. My old gym had a couple of big strong guys and everyone else followed what they did. Guess what, they were the only ones getting stronger, because it was their program. Find your weaknesses, turn them into strengths.
