I finally worked up the nerves to register for one. It's a USAPL event. Now I need to buckle down in my training. I also need to order a singlet. I'm planning to compete in RAW with wraps. Where should I buy a singlet and should I train in it?

There are many places you can order. Iron Rebel has singlets, SuperTraining, etc. I have my old school Inzer which Groves gave to me. Now, I'm way to small to wear it. I would train in it a bit if you're shy b/c you need to be comfortable in it.

And if you're competing raw w/ wraps, I hope you're training in wraps periodically to get used to the pain of wearing a tight wrap.

jimwendler.com has some singlets in the $25-30 range if your not looking to spend too much. Good luck at the meet.

You should wear that singlet every time you crack a natty light. By that I mean you should rock that daily.
I better buy one for each day of the week.

I wear Elite FTS training wraps when I'm training in sets of 6 or lower. I'm not sure how the training wraps are different than competition wraps but I'm planning on using the ones I have at the meet.

And I hope I can change my weight class at the meet. I didn't know that registration classes were in KG and registered for 265 lb +

Rigger is right, we are proud of you. It takes nerve to put yourself out there like that. Any way you look at it you are making a memory. Good luck.

Oh boy! The training is a bit stressful but enjoyable. As for the day you hit the platform, don't have any expectations of how it's going to feel. Some guys really enjoy them, I was not one of those guys. I'm glad you're taking this on.

Just a suggestion on the wraps. If you're wraps are a little older, buy a new set of the same ones. Start to use them about 4 weeks out.

Also, is there any reason I shouldn't wear these shoes?

Plenty of reasons. How can root your feet to the floor with those shoes falling apart.

Use the singlet during you heaviest workouts closest to the meet just for comfortability
