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?

    If you squat wide also, your squat suit will probably work well for both. Most guys I know who squat wide and pull sumo will pull in their Titan Boss or Inzer Canvas. I'm not sure about guys who use Metal.

    Titan's Velocity is a very good conventional suit, but I've not tried the sumo version.

    I used the wide stance velocity at my last meet... i bombed in the deadlift. the suit was a bit tight, I had problems with the legs rolling up on me and pinching the crap out of my legs when I tried to get to the bar, and I couldn't hold onto the bar because of forearm issues..... So make of that what you want. I dont' think my evaluation of that suit is a good one, but I think its based on me, not poor quality of the suit.

    I personally am beginning to think I pull best in just a pair of single ply briefs. I dont' think the suits are what they are cracked up to be---at least if you are lifting in single ply.
    Finally ELITE @ SHW..

    Single ply: 931 squat, 760 bench, 530 deadlift and 2180 total
    Multi ply: 960 squat, 770 bench, 550 deadlift and 2250 total.

    The next stop: PRO total.

    I like something looser, my canvas is too much to deadlift in. I use a worn out Pro squatter. I had a King suit that worked pretty well, but I grew out of it

    With respect to the Metal King Sumo Deadlifter, is that the IPF approved version?

    Thanks.

    Damn, 125lbs is pretty good. I have heard nothing but good things about Metal sumo DL suits.

    How long did you have to work with the suit to get that kind of increase?
