    Anyone pull in Metal Pro Briefs?

    Anyone pull in Metal Pro Briefs?

    Would they suit a Con Deadlifter?

    Thank you very much!

    I occasionally pull in a looser pair of Pro's, and to be honest I get more pop out of them conventional than I do sumo, so I would say yes.

    Ive pulled in some viking briefs a cpl times and they gave some pop but the ace are better. if your going to use them as a filler for a suit they would be good.

    Thanks guys, I have a pair already that fit pretty well so will try them out this Sunday.

    Never pulled in briefs before so don't really know what to expect.

    Thanks again!

    I have before and they never gave me a pound on my conventional (sum is different). Any lbs ive gotten out of a deadlift suit have to do with the tightness of the straps.

    First time I pulled in these briefs I pulled about 50lbs less than my single ply suited deadlift. It may take some time to get used to the support.
