Has anyone ever used this suit for pulling? I klnow that its a squat suit,but I know many pull sumo in it.

I saw a young kid with it pulling some big #'s. I was curious what other people thought of it.

I know people who use it for sumo pulling in single ply feds. Works pretty well.

I used to use a TRX for squats and deadlifts when I lifted in inzer equipment. It's good enough for sumo pulling as far as I'm concerned--I'm not a fan of pulling sumo in anything but briefs, but thats my bias. In my opinion the good thing about the TRX as a squat suit is its "stopping power". You get things set right and you will only go down so far before it catches you. Obviously this will play against you trying to pull sumo where you need to get your hips low and chest up. The only real problem I had was that the straps have to be adjusted right or the suit stopped you and you ended up pulling stiff legged.
