    9-11 ME bench

    results arent in yet. im sitting in my shirt right now, waiting for it to warm up. took about 5 mins to get it on today. still painful slack in the upper lat/armpit part but i'll just bear with it. wish me luck.

    im gonna try to see what i can get for a 3 board. old pr is 315, pre-back injury.

    goodbye

    goddamn it, fucking hey!! this shirt does diddley shit for me. i got 325 off a 3 board....and the shirt hurts like hell. i dont mind that it hurts. but its fucking weird. its so tight but yet 135 touches on warmups. SO needless to say, i'm pretty torked.

    rest of it looks like this:

    JM's: 115x3x2 sets
    Seated Shoulder Press: 95x10x2 sets
    cuban press: 45 lb bar 4 sets of 8

    nice work on the PR.. a inzer blast shirt wont help much on the 3 board.. maybe a little on a 1, but thats it.. its not meant to be a great shirt , just a beginner shirt i think.

    hope you get the bands soon.. if not, kill the person who said 2 weeks...

    I tried on an EHPHD the other night that was a little loose and got almost 50 lb more off the three board than without the shirt. I'm stumped , just work with it some more and grow into it.

    grow into it? i think my body pinches the shirt in the armpits because there's ALWAYS some slack there, no matter what. im very confused as to why 135 touches

    and when i say that my body pinches the slack...i dont mean slack in like an inch that could possibly slide down. it's always a really tight wrinkle

    thats what I hate a bout polys, they dont help a lot unless you got them sized right. If they are too loose, they dont help, and yes...if they are too tight, they dont work. I actually spoke to John about this on the phone friday. He said if you get the poly too tight, you loose some of the spring/rebound properties. The reason being, poly material gets its power from streching. If you have a it stretched beyond its max (Like with a super tight shirt) you have no rebound properties when you try to take a weight.

    The same thing if the shirt is too loose. If its too loose, then you will never stretch the shirt enough to gain benefit from the rebound properties.

    Any of that make sense?

    fOOd is your friend, eat eat. The good thing is, the shirt should fit a little looser after a few times. Just dont wash it.

    I assume you lift with the USAPL? If so denim is allowed, but no velcro. One of the worse experiences of my life was being stuffed into a non-velcro denim. Then turning around and helping my old training partner get in one (he was about 330). Never again.

    If you can't get velcro...don't get a denim. But if this shirt you have doesn't 'feel' right, you need something else. Bench shirts have like this magical power...when you have the right one..you just know it. I used to have a back up shirt..a denim, and I hated it. When I put it on, I knew I would bench like crap in it.

    Basically, just go with what you got for this contest. You can only return the shirt after 14 days...which I am assuming has past already; however, if your shirt blows within 6-8 weeks (one of those time frames, cant remember), Inzer will replace it (or credit towards a different style shirt). So, if after the contest, you don't like it...I would mysteriously make it blow.

    Hopefully soon I will have a Titan Fury, Inzer Phenom, Inzer Double Denim, and maybe a Karin Double denim. I will give you an honest opinion on what I think of them. I am far from a great bencher, but I can provide my personal insight.

    As of now, I would say a radical cut Inzer denim is the best shirt I have used. As far as Inzer Polys go...I never got much out of the. I have tried all the polys...Blast, HD, HPHD, EHPHD....they are tight, but don't provide much increasing my bench. If I am going to fork out 100-200 bucks on a shirt, I want the SOB to work as good as possible.

    For now....for focus on your contest....do the best you can with the shirt ya got.

    You have to pay shipping to send it back.

    I believe NASA allows velcro...buuutttt, I wouldn't get a single denim radical cut..in fact, you can't (according to John Inzer). Both of my blew...one blew severly (split down the arm..basically splitting the arm in half).

    Maybe this Inzer Phenom will be worth a darn. Inzer himself told me that this shirt will rival denim, if not, make denim obsolete.

    If it blows, send it back. If not, you will have a poly rag laying around. The return on a shirt is 14 days. And it has to be unused. If you send it back after your contest, and its no blown..they may just send it back at your expense. I had that happen before.

    since i'm a cheap bastard... if i get nothing out of it, i blow it pretty good, then i send it back..and they give me a new shirt or my money back, right? when does it have to blow by? where can i find this out?

    do they ask any questions or assume the blowout actually happened?

    Nah, you're not a cheap bastard...you just want your moneys worth like rest of us. The blowout guarantee for poly is either 6 or 8 weeks (I am pretty sure it is 6 weeks). You just call Inzer and tell them your shirt blew out. They should give you an RMA (return merchandise authorization) number. They will ask you at that time what you want to do (replace or refund). You can either replace it, apply the money into towards another shirt, or get a refund (not including shipping).

    They wont ask questions about how it blew out, but it should blow out at a seam, not in the center of the shirt or something like that.

    The nice thing about denim is that has a 6 month blow out guarantee.
    The fury (titan) has a 1 year blow guarantee.

    You can also just pull apart on one the armpit seams. Get you and and friend to pull on either side of it.
