Today was a day for a lot of semi-firsts. I put my suit on for the first time since March, used a straight bar for the first time since then, and worked out of the monolift for the first time since then.
I switched from an ace suit with jack briefs to ace suit with ace briefs and let me tell you there is a big difference in how it feels. The ace on ace is extremely difficult to move in and I struggled to open up my hips and get down. I really felt locked up well above parallel. So I definitely need to get more time in them to get used to them. Overall I was happy with the day. I took 690 for 2 with straps down (not to depth) which I will take. After several more weeks of getting used to the gear, straps up, and wraps, it should make for a pretty good squat.
