Re: Equipped and unequipped
Well said Fred. For me it has gotten to the point where I prefer not to have the latest shirt or suit. You also need to be a technician in knowing how to get the most out of it. Competition is competition so equipped lifers have to compete with others that are equipped so that makes for a level playing field. A strong unequipped lifter may not perform as well equipped from a competitive point of view. But if you have had an injury then it may be the better choice to protect yourself.
For me I also have to say I like knowing that I did the lift and not the equipment.
