Currently I'm at a 245 lbs bench max, but my OHP is around 125 lbs I believe (I haven't maxed out OHP in awhile)... I normally don't work shoulders that often, but I do a lot of bench to make up for it... but is my OHP good for where my bench stands, or should it be higher so that's it's more...

Do People only compete Raw these days?

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?

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?
