531 and weight loss

to cut to the chase my question is this. i plan on running 531 for a while. since 531 starts out with low(er) weight and builds on steady small progress. would losing .5-1lb a week for the first 2 or 3 cycles impact strength gains much? i plan on doing some circuit training after the main lifts as...

Foam Roller or PVC pipe?

My Foam Roller is just about worn down and I don't know if I should get another one (high density black) or just go for some PVC pipe? The PVC pipe at 6" diameter is going to be about 15$ extra but I'm guessing I won't have to buy one ever again, right? Thoughts?

Knee sleeves-best bang for the buck

Hey all, what kind of knee sleeves are you all using? I know that SlingShot's are probably the best, but they also cost a pretty penny. Is there a pair you have found that deliver what you're looking for, but at a fraction of the cost?

So I've been out of the game for 17 years. Back then, everyone competed in bench shirts and squat suits. Now it seems from looking at results that pretty much eveyrone competes raw. Is this the case?
