Entering the darkside, never to return

If you asked me a year ago if I would ever buy multi-ply gear I would have said fuck no.

Well the other day my stuff came in. Thanks to lifter Matt Ladewski who has dropped weight and sold me his now too big gear I am ready to roll into the new era of my lifting.

Hooked up with Metal Viking briefs and a nice Inzer Rage X bench shirt. Both of them fit very well and tomorrow morning will be the first session as a geared lifter.

Today in the gym was lower body accessory work. Its even more important now to shore up the weak areas since I am going to be handling more weight with the gear and all my supportive systems need to be brought up to compensate for the extra load.
