A friend of mine is looking to buy a pair of squat briefs for his gym training. He is about a 500-550 lbs raw squatter and has only used Inzer Power Pants in the past.

He is looking for something that will give him a bit of carryover and will be fairly easy to learn/hit depth.

What does everyone on here recommend?

Titan NXG+ single ply briefs would be a good start for not much cash.

For just general lifting and not competing, I like Crain's double ply briefs. They don't change your groove and give plenty of support. I have had mine over 5 years and they haven't stretched out.

I liked my Metal pro briefs. They lasted a long time, in fact I could still use them now.

They were very forgiving and soft and I didn't get much out of them. He could get them like 1 size too big and I think that'd be perfect

I'd stay way from Metal ace, Inzer predators, and Titan boss

What lones said. If worn tight enough the pros can be great. there very poppy is thats a word but not as crazy as the preds ace or boss

I haven't tried much, but I would recommend Titan Super NXG+ Single-ply or Titan Boss briefs.

I like the Inzer Powerpants myself. I feel they give pretty good carry over if they're tight. When I get my money togeather though I'm upgrading to the Predators.

Agreed. Metal pros are a good choice. I love mine. Haven't used the Titan single-plys, but I've heard they are a good training brief.

Another option might be to get a somewhat loose single-ply squat suit. There are likely a lot of used ones floating around and he could get one for cheap.

For great briefs at a affordable price, get Titan Centurions. For the absolute best if you can part with the cost, go Tian Boss.

I'd go crain or frantz.... plus side is that a lot of guys still use those under their suits when they move up to canvas etc...

I agree that someone's old suit would be the best bet as the straps can just be left down or cut off when he moves in to a better suit.......

if he's a weird shape go Overkill 2-ply.... my 3-ply is a lot, but 2-ply once it's broken in isn't too hard to hit depth with anything more than a plate.....
