Are you gonna lift in a single-ply fed? If not, get a double-ply Metal suit. Metal squat suits are awesome

If you're going single ply, then yes, get the v-type squatter. If you're going double ply, go for the pro squatter. I don't need to explain how good these suits are. If you squat wide, then get this suit! Now!

If you're only using it for squatting get the viking materiel!

Careful, it's much more suit than the regular v-type. I couldn't get to the bar with the viking v-type.

Have you been in the suit since?

When I got my suit I had a RAW squat of ~295. It's been a little over a month and I hit 405 yesterday... probably like my 6th or 7th time in the suit.

And I'm a crappy squater and I don't have any experienced PLers to teach me stuff ;).

Yeah, did one session since that, and I could get to the bar, but it didn't allow my hips to get down properly. I'd probably pull in it once I work it in a few more times.

Damn fine progress you've made.

Good call, the regular v-type is still pretty f'n sick.

Yeah, call Jim or Matt. They'll get the size right.

I have used this suit- I thought it was really good- stacks of support- although I have heard its not everyones first choice for deadlifting since it can be tough to get into a good start position.

Where could I find Jim or Matts number? If your talking about wendler and his buddy then I guess I could find it on the EFS site.

Yeah, Jim Wendler and Matt Bash. Call Elite and you'll more than likely get one of them.

I'm pretty sure Matt doesn't work there anymore. Ask for Jim. Tell him RHodes sent you. He'll just make fun of me, but it might get you the right suit. I'm people that knows people.
