    In my opinion, you need time to become "more intimate" with your shirt before you compete with it. A couple of days won't do it, in fact you might be embarassed. Now, I've never worn a shirt but from everything that I have read, a bench shirt can change the way you bench. If you are strong in the tri's, you'll get more benefit than if you're strong point is your lat's, chest, and delts. Okay pro's, I'm ready to be embarassed myself on this one, or backed up.

    Basically no percentages , just stay below a max attempt. Go easy in it. Just bench and let the shirt show you were it wants to go. Thata the best way to introduce yourself to each other. Just Under your max, or opener if yuou know what that is, but you really cant cause you dont wear a shirt yet. So make under your raw max. maybe 3 sets of singles.

    Sounds good. I'll make sure to "feel" it first, even before putting it on. Right Cubanito?

    The shirts are made of polyestor or denim, there very tight adn the arms come out the front of the shirt instead of the sides. They will add some pounds to your lift. Main reasonf for the shirts is protection for your shoulders and pecs.
