View Full Version : New Deadlift Suit, The Titan VELOCITY AND BOSS VELOCITY!

Ok time to let the cat out of the bag....at least a bit. As you know I have worn virtually every deadlift suit I could ever get my hands on, and designed and tested more than one brand as well. I recently designed and tested TWO new DL suits, and wore one of them at the recent worlds and pulled a WABDL PR 755 with a miss at 810 weighing 234. I had an all time PR in training with 775 but needed the 755 for the win so I did not go any higher at the show. The deadlift suit has not been named yet, but its nicknamed the TITAN ROCKET. Velcro straps, tightness in the crotch and hips like the Metal and Marathon suits, but what sets it apart is not just the extreme pop off the floor sumo AND conventional, but the CARRYOVER to lockout. It is in my opinion, taken over as THE BEST one ply suit available, but you can try for yourself. I was VERY picky when making this suit and would only accept perfection, they knew that going in. Wide straps, thick material, and special APLIX VELCRO type straps make it one of a kind. I know Ken Anderson is ordering some off of my template, and I believe Pete will have some very soon as well. Not sure on price, but its worth whatever it costs. I will have a long article on dl gear including suits, e shirts, belts, briefs, shoes, you name it, coming out soon and it will submitted to PL USA as well as ALN. Stay tuned! To answer emails and pms, yes I did use the Inzer Fusion with great conventional results early in my cycle and I have nothing bad to say about IAD, John or the Fusion, but the Titan worked better so that is why I wore it at the show, its really that simple. I wore several suits very early in the cycle and wore the one that performed best, just like any of you would. Train hard! I will have youtube of my suited DLs in practice and at the show soon.

Yeah bro I was lucky. They contacted me and asked me to design a DL suit so I did so and I am happy with the result. I told them I would not be happy until it was PERFECT, it took many tries but we worked together and got it done and the results will speak for themselves.

I believe he is but not sure! You can order through his website, google KEN ANDERSON TITAN POWERLIFTING and you can find him. I know he had some of my suits at the worlds and sold out in literally a few minutes. I know of several world class dlers that are making the switch as well. In my opinion the best gear is designed and tested by the ones using it, this suit was carefully thought out and brutally tested with input from my training partners and 20 plus years on the platform. I stand by it 100 percent. You can bet you will start seeing the ROCKET in meets all over the world. The Finns and other Europeans were all over this suit at the worlds.

Yes bro, I have super long arms and short torso so my torso is very high, and I get ALOT out of the suit. Its the carryover to the lockout that sets this suit apart from the rest.

If you dont mind me asking, What kind of carryover did you get from this suit?

SGT ROCK
11-22-2008, 05:28 PM
Carryover for me is so hard to measure as I don't max out raw. I am guessing 40lbs plus? For an elite deadlifter that is ALOT conventional. I get a bit more out of it sumo as would anyone.

Sounds awesome- you say there is a single ply version- any moves being made to have this approved by the IPF?

The prototypes were NON velcro that I tried, so that version would certainly be IPF legal with a few small tweaks. Pete is big on IPF lifting so I am certain we will come up with an IPF version VERY soon....hint hint.

I dont know the date on that one. I know it is not finished so I doubt they will release it until perfect. I am sorry to say I have more changes I want to add so I don't think they will be releasing that one until it is PERFECT. The poly suits I have finished up however and Pete did a GREAT job with that and Ken did a great job getting some ready to ship. The BOSS ROCKET I used only a few times as I found out WABDL would not approve it so I immediately switched to a single ply. I will tell you this, it is hands down the best two ply suit I have ever seen or used. If WABDL allowed it I would have worn it, its that simple. I hope this can answer some of the emails on the suit as well. Thanks for the inquiries. My goal was to give DLERS something to get excited about as the squat and bench were getting so many new gear items, and I think we succeeded.

Ok bros its official, it is called the TITAN VELOCITY, AND BOSS VELOCITY! The Boss hybrid is a 2 ply, and the regular velocity comes in one and two plies. It can be ordered as a custom made suit but is not mass produced at this time. Soon it will be! I had a lengthy discussion with Mr. Alaniz about the suits and lets just say there was ALOT of thinking and testing to get this suit perfect, the results will speak for themselves. Tony and Rich are currently having one made for them, and they will be setting records in it in 2009, along with many other great pullers.

If you are a sumo puller and your fed allows it, the BOSS VELOCITY will blow your mind. I had the chance to get a few heavy reps in with it and it is simply amazing. One thing I need to add here, is that IF YOUR FED ALLOWS IT definitely go with the velcro. The APLIX style that Pete invented is superior to regular velcro. It is SUPER DUPER tight, with nearly ZERO give. I know I stated it over and over but it is worth mentioning again, you must wear the suit TIGHT to get max results. And to answer two inquiries I received, you do NOT need to wear briefs under this suit. POSSIBLY wear them with the BOSS if your fed allows multi plies, but I found that the suit itself gives enough support, it is THAT good.

I do NOT have extensive experience in the Metal, but have tried them a bit. From what I have seen firsthand with training partners and feedback from other lifters, I feel the Velocity is just a better suit. The concept of both suits are similar, ie very tight crotch and hip area, but the harness system combined with the Aplix strap system sets it apart.

I would reccomend the majority start with a single ply velocity. It will prove to be enough suit for most. For an advanced sumo puller, they could then move onto the Boss Velocity. The single ply Velocity feels like a two ply suit, especially with the velcro option. Usually if something is IPF approved you may feel it will lack in support, this is one of the things that makes the Velocity unique, it give HUGE carryover even in the basic single ply, IPF legal version (with or without velcro). As I stated before though, IF your fed allows, go with the velcro.

All I can add to Rock's comments is this. I've been using a single ply NXG+ conventional cut for a bit. Had the advantage of training with Rock as he was working on the development of these suits. A couple of things I've learned...
1. What I thought was tight in a DL suit was not tight. Rock means make your eyes bulge TIGHT even before you reach for the bar. Takes some real technique to learn how to set up with gear that tight, but that's talk for another post, though it can be learned!
2. Without doubt, my next suit will be a single ply velocity! Having watched Rock's work I expect a great deal more acceleration out of this beast. The transition from a tight Centurian to a TIGHT Velocity should be a good progression. Good luck guys and I'll keep you posted on my own progress.

Sgt. Rock is much more the expert than I, and hopefully he'll check back in for some more feedback, but I'd say take a good set of measurements, talk to Ken Anderson (if you're going Titan) or whoever you're supplier is, and pay the bit extra up front for a custom cut. Let them know that you want an extra tight competition fit. They are always a good reference source. Most companies usually include at least one alteration to dial in a custom cut as well, but check that out up front. To compare, it usually takes 15 to 25 minutes of hard work to get Rock's suit on and seated for a pull.

Yes I wore the Velocity at the Worlds. A suit must be tight to get full benefits from it. Most benchers dont have an issue with wearing a tight shirt to get the most benefit from a bench shirt, the SAME mentality needs to be utilized for the DL as well. At the Worlds I had not YET mastered getting down to the bar in a super tight Velocity, but each session since I get more and more acclimated.

I like it. I hit a personal record in it first time using it. It is very well made and is made with 2 different types of material. Mine is custom made so the fit is right on. I feel alot of the tightness is in the rearend not so much in the hips.

I've never pulled with a Metal so I can't compare it to one.

If you try one I don't think you'll be disappointed. Try one from Ken Anderson at andersonpowerlifting.com

It is good to see this thread still going. I am going to do a mini cycle in the BOSS version, with dual quad briefs, sumo of course and I am very excited. As Ryan said, try it..you simply WILL NOT be dissapointed. Pete invented this suit, I helped test it and was used as the guinea pig to see just how tight we could go with it and to report back all results, good or bad, the end result is the best dl suit on the market.

If you try one I don't think you'll be disappointed. Try one from Ken Anderson at andersonpowerlifting.com

Thanks for the input! I will definitley be going with Ken Anderson if I get one.

Yes I wore the Velocity at the Worlds. A suit must be tight to get full benefits from it. Most benchers dont have an issue with wearing a tight shirt to get the most benefit from a bench shirt, the SAME mentality needs to be utilized for the DL as well. At the Worlds I had not YET mastered getting down to the bar in a super tight Velocity, but each session since I get more and more acclimated.

How do you manage to go down and grab the bar with the suit so tight??? my old Titan suit was so tight when I was 216-220 that I used to get a full workout just trying to get down to even touch the bar with my finger tips! It is sad when you break into a sweat and you still have not even made contact with the bar! :confused:

yeah i just got my new velocity in the mail with it sized back down to a 38 because the 40 was just too loose, after much torn knuckles and bleeding cuticles i got it on in about 50 minutes the straps could probly be taken in a tiny bit but this suit is outrageous just tryhing to get down to the bar was some serious work and pain but i made it down so that simply told me that more weight would go up :D i think the hardest part of the deadlift will be reaching the bar these days and the rest will be a breeze :D i'm excited to try this in a pull meet this May.

It takes ALOT OF PRACTICE, including breathing. Throw your LEFT HAND DOWN, with your feet WIDER than they normally would be, anchor yourself, then throw your RIGHT hand down, now try and quickly bring your feet to meetstance, get a quick breath and rock and roll.

Sumo it should be much easer.

i just got my single ply velocity back from having the straps taken in and set a short term goal pr of 700 lbl sumo deadlift. what was amazing about this is my last pr was a shaky 675 pull at 210 lbls and my 700 pull was done at 194 lbls, the big thing i realized with this suit was how it really helps you through the midpoint and off the floor. one more thing the 700 pull was being conservative i was just checking the suit out on DE day to see if the straps were taken in to the right size and started pulling and decided to pull heavy. i'm expecting 725+ from this at a meet in may. as a natural lifter i'm so pleased with this suit and how it's helping me reach my goals.
