    Crain (as in Rickey Dale Crain - famous PLer) suits and shirts sell pretty well in Japan. I've heard good things from some Japanese guys who use and swear by them.

    I've never tried them myself and I can't imagine they'd be better than Inzer or Titan, but who knows?
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    I have an old Crain DL suit. It is an ok DL suit. I can get a few pounds out of it.

    His gear is actually pretty good. His bench shirt for a long time was really ahead of its time. Plus he is just a legend and knows his stuff.
