Re: Equipped and unequipped
Holding a number of National Records unequipped I think I have earned the right to say that equipped is just different. You can be competitive unequipped (which I am) but not be as good equipped. I know the equipped bench in my class is significant and was set some time ago. Also keep in mind that there are those that have been injured and the only way they can continue to compete is with supportive equipment. They are still very strong competitive people. If someone wants to prove the difference then they should be willing to suit up and see if they can break the equipped number before they criticize it.
