The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Squat Suit Question

    I hope this isnt a stupid question but I am training in my first squat suit, a Titan Superior suit and one of my training partners uses an Inzer Hardcore. I squat 500 raw and he is just under that. We are also both new to suit squatting. For some reason he has no problem hitting depth in his suit with any weight and I am getting stopped right above the whole with more weight. Its not suit tightness because I can pull my own straps up and he needs help. Is the Hardcore designed diffrently than the Titan and would it be a more forgiving suit to a someone new to squatting in a suit?

    It's probably technique. The more you sit back into the suit, the easier it is to get depth. You want to load the weight into the suit. 500 should definitely be enough to get depth in a superior.
