I've entered into the NOTLD deadlift meet in late October and have never used a deadlift suit before so I'll begin training in one right after USAPL Raw Nationals in 2 weeks. I really have no clue about selecting a deadlift suit so I was looking for some opinions on here. It must be a single ply suit and something that I can effectively learn to use in 8-10 weeks of training.
I'm a pretty barrel chested build with a thick waste (not your typical body builder v-taper) and always lift sumo. I have considered the Metal King Sumo but have also heard very positive things about the Titan Velocity. The Inzer Fusion has also been recommended but I know even less about it.
Also, should the suit be worn or cycled in when training speed days? I've recently implemented speed work (70-80%) into my training and have noticed a huge difference in this cycle. Just not sure how to use the suit in this endeavor.
Any ideas are welcome. Thanks gents
