Just did squats in my Inzer Lever Belt, Brutal!

Got the 13mm version, tight and effective, but just brutal in the comfort department. Anybody have any Idea if it comes more comfortable over time? Never had such a tight perfect fit in a belt.

Who here also prefers to DL in Oly shoes?

Im sure I am a one in a thousand case. But I pull about 20-30 lbs more in a Oly shoe then barefoot or a low profile shoe. Anybody else experience this? Its just weird since Im adding a extra 3/4 of a inch to my ROM.

Quick questions on the differences, between DUP and RTS. Besides being RPE and Rep Percentages, both these programs seem to be formulated the same way. What am I missing here?

Bench Lockout

So my weak spot during bench is about midway to lockout. If you were to lay flat on your back place your elbows on your sides and point your hands up like a CGBP that point to lockout is where I struggle.

Belt position

I used to deadlift with a belt on, but I felt stifled by it and decided to stop using it. I went from deadlifting 275 for a single, to doing it for an easy 5 in a couple of weeks, all because I found it easier to arch my back if I'm doing it beltless. I just wanted to get it out there even though...

I need a place to powerlift in Georgetown KY

I just moved to Georgetown KY and I really need a gym to powerlift. I'm lifting at Toyota's gym now and powerlifting is frowned upon there.

Heart Rate Variability tracking for recovery monitoring??

I was wondering if anyone out there has experience with HRV as a recovery tracking tool with specific regard to powerlifting. Curious to know if you found it useful, and if you have particular recommendations for an app to use. I have access to a polar heart rate chest strap.
