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?

    Which deadlift suit?

    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

    I love the Titan Velocity, but I pull conventional and haven't tried the sumo version. I don't use my suit for speed work, but you could give it a try and see if you like the results. Good luck at your meets!

    Do you get much carry over out of your fusion, ive not been able to find a suit myself where i get more than maybe 10-15 pounds carryover.

    I got an older Titan NXG single-ply deadlift suit in a clearance sale, and it's working well for me.

    In my experience the Titan Velocity is good for conventional... Metal for sumo style. Get the velcro straps if your fed allows it!

    If you have to use single ipf stuff get the trx not the fusion if you go inzer. metals suits are all good. get the v type and a centurian is a good suit for sumo too
