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.
