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?

    Anyone here have success stretching legs on squat suit?

    The hips on my pro squatter are great but the legs are so tight that my legs start to fall asleep and go numb actually making me like weak in the legs, I've read some guys use basketball's to stretch them? Is this worth a shot? If so can someone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks Anthony

    Buddy of mine used basketballs to stretch out the legs in his Metal Jack squat suit. He said it worked great.

    I agree with the basketball. It works better if you wet the legs. Just deflate the ball, stick it in, then inflate it.

    I agree with Dank27....

    If that doesn't work you have a few other options as well.

    Look on Overkill Strength's YouTube channel, Rudy has a tutorial video on how to use a few barbells to stretch out a sleeve or leg.

    My guess though would be that the band on the bottom of the leg will still dig in. I'm not sure why METAL likes to sew in a cuff that's tighter than the leg but they do..... the only way I got my old ACE briefs to work for me ( before giving up and going to my Overkill briefs back in '09) was to cut that band off.
