Good or No Good?

Been thinking about squat briefs i know a thread was started a while ago about gear but this is just for the briefs, minor hip pain thats not the main concern although itd be nice if that goes away too, i mostly need to up my squat without going into super gear, (money and dont want to right now) tell me if these are decent:

No. try the power pants instead. and what do you mean by ``up your squat.’’ For a competition of some sort?

For what they are, the power pants are awesome. The others are a waste. I’ve been using power pants for 2 years and have had great experiences. You can pull and squat with any stance.

No experience with Inzer briefs, but simply based on style, I would go for the power pants. I can say from personal experience that the legless style briefs can be very uncomfortable.

I can squat 415 for one raw, and i can squat 405lb for 3 and 440lb for one with power pants. If i were you i would go with the power pants.

I can atest to these briefs like matso1236 can. I think at the time I hit my last PR, my raw squat was between 400 and 420 (just a belt). With good wraps and power pants, i got 525. If you know how to work with gear right, you can get some decent poundages out of low end equipment. They are also very easy to learn.

Yea i have to add, i tried them on ONCE, before i started Sheiko, so basically i got 35lb first time i put them on. I am yet to work with them, i’m pretty sure i can get extra pounds out of them easily with practice. I also got em rather tight, so that may be why i got much out of them the first time.

Here is where i got mines at for $30…

May find them cheaper on other online stores, but the costumer service was pretty decent.

Thanks alot guess i will go with powerpants, hoping to just get my squat half decent since its lagging alot
