I have been experimenting with something on deadlifts. I have noticed with the Max DL suit that when going with a conventional stance it actually stops me before I can lockout, like it won't let me go that extra inch so to speak. Alright I have been playing around with my old Champion suit with 2ply briefs under it and I seem to be able to get into position better and it doesn't seem to stop me at lockout, so I think I will go with this suit at the meet.
Don't get me wrong the Max DL is a awesome deadlift suit when I go with a sumo stance, but raw I am just stronger conventional and I feel with a suit that will let me get into a good position my geared conventional will over pass what I have done in the past, maybe not in this meet but I feel that it will help me in the future.

George I know what your talking about with the suit stopping you. are you just pulling the legs up like a regular squat suit? Iv noticed that if I pull the legs up really high on the suit almost bunching them up in my crotch it helps with that. You will get slightly less pop off the ground, but if you cant lock it out that extra pop is usless. another thing that helps is having velcro straps to really crank them down. I have never used the max dl, but im guessing its not too much different than any other dl suit out there

(Very good workout today! I went in feeling pretty tired for some reason, got home from work popped a Stacker 3 and I was good to go lol. All bench sets felt really easy too. I also hit a triple with 5lbs more than my planned opener and could went up 10-20 more pounds for a triple, so I don't think my opener will be a problem at all. Next week will be a single working up to just my opener and then it's rest until meet day.)

Douglas I pulled the legs up alot higher than normal like you were talking about and I could tell a big difference.
(That was it. Squats felt heavy today but my opener still flew up. Deadlifts felt very easy, I think I'm gonna go with a conventional stance at this meet.)
