Gateway Squat Suit - W/ Velcro Adjustments
As with all gateways, there is always that next level you weren’t supposed to cross, but that won't stop you from trying.
The Gateway Squat Suit can be combined with the Gateway Brief for added hip and leg support, or used as a solo training aide for the competitive lifter who wants to train hard and compete, minus the hassle of the super-tight material that's difficult to hop into.
Raw lifts are perfectly fine, but lifters find that Gateway gear can assist with:
1/ Preventing and limiting injuries
2/ Increasing compression and blood flow around joints thereby increasing the volume lifted in each session and greatly influencing recovery time between sessions.
3/ Reducing anxiety and increasing confidence levels while training (often the most important benefit).
4/Increasing RAW strength by adding more volume and greater confidence with higher weights and intensity.
With the Velcro straps included, you can keep the suit locked in place, increasing the stretch of the material allowing you to up the weight. Additionally, the straps provide more support on the abdominal region and the entire back section creating a more unified chain in the body during squats, pulls and other lower body lifts. The Gateway line can be used as introduction to using more sophisticated lifting suits and gear that are usually way too much for the beginner or intermediate lifter. It also accommodates lifters on all stances from narrow to wide.
So whether you’re young in the game or a seasoned veteran looking to add more support, compression and weight to your lifts, the Gateway 1-ply and 2-ply Squat Suit is a great standalone or in combo with the Gateway briefs.
• Small/Medium: 140 lbs – 180 lbs Body Weight
• Large: 180 lbs – 220 lbs Body Weight
• XL: 220 lbs – 260 lbs Body Weight
• 2XL: 260 lbs – 300 lbs Body Weight
• 3XL: 300 lbs – 340 lbs Body Weight
*If you are adding the suit in with the briefs as a combo, it is recommended you go up one size on the suit. For example, it you were a small/medium then a large suit in the 1-ply is better. You can squeeze in the same size combo but there may be some difficulty in movement.
*The Gateway 2-ply Suit was intended to add more pop to your lifts and would be similar to the Gateway 1-ply combo brief and suit. If you are wanting to go big and add the 2-ply briefs to the 2-ply suit then going up a size on the suit is recommended. For example, a 2-ply XL brief would be best with the 2-ply 2XL suit. If you are a narrow stance squatter then the 2ply brief/2-ply suit may bind up, so consider these before you purchase.
