I seen a few pictures of guys wearing a backwards squat suit for their deadlift, anyone have any information about this?

Uhh..nope. Maybe they are wearing a deadlift suit or their regular squat suit. But given how hard it is to get into a squat suit the regular way, I would seriously doubt they'd be wearing it backwards. Might just be a singlet even. There's not much out there that will impact the deadlift. Might get a small amount out of a belt, but suits and erector shirts where legal don't do a whole lot to add to a raw total.

Nope, it's definitly a backwards squat suit... I was just wondering how this provided a benefit... I seen pics of someone doing that with an Inzer Hardcore and have heard of it else where but there was no explaination.

Yea, some people wear a squat suit backwards for the DL. Getting support from a DL suit is hard to do, especially if you pull sumo. Try it out, maybe it will work for you.

I've seen a lot of people do this, but I just don't understand the reasoning behind it. Believe me I've tried to see it from their perspective including actually putting on a suit that way - IMHO, all it did was make an already uncomfortable suit more uncomfortable and less supportive.
