Get a friend to give you a suit wedgy for a better fit as it should be as high as possible. Use the suit like briefs (straps down) 95% of the time and work up in weight. This will help you get used to the fit and find the groove. Once you do, you should really feel the power of the suit in your hips. When it is time, get the straps high on your traps to add more tension. Throw your butt back like you are sitting on the toilet when you begin your descent: This will tighten the suit up more on the way down and help maintain balance. On the way up, begin by pushing your elbows forward followed by your chest, maintaining an arch in your back and really driving your hips forward under the weight. Like others have said, spread your knees apart at all times: This will help prevent falling forward and keep you in the suit’s groove.
Good luck. I’ve had a Centurion since December and have nothing but good things to say.[/quote]
I don’t agree with working it straps down. Straps up and down in that material is a world of difference. Anymore, if we put a suit on we put the straps up all the time. You will learn how to make it work.
Just make sure you get the shoulder seam as far in front of the trap as you can so the suit pulls you back instead of forward as you descend.
