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?

    one suit for sumo puller and close squats?

    i read around saying someone who pulls sumo and squats wide can use one suit. i pull sumo and squat medium/shoulder stance, would i get any carryover toward my sumo pull if i wore a squat suit made for close stance?
    what are some recommendations for a squat suit that fits my approach?

    I don't know very much at all about equipment but I would think that you wouldn't be able to use the same suit for both. Squat suits are cut differently for narrow and wide stances.

    Dead - 589lbs -- 267.5kg -- Dec 20, '08 (Provincial Record @100kg class)

    I agree with deeder. I just don't think you're going to find it. If you have to make a choice, I'd go with a squat suit simply because you really don't get that much out of a deadlift suit.

    I've never used Titan but have heard good things. I prefer Metal but then again, it's the only brand I've ever used.

    Wide stance squat + sumo deadlift = wide stance squat suit

    narrow stance squat = narrow stance suit, sumo deadlift = narrow stance suit put on backwards

    I've used several different brands, Metal is the best by FAR!
