loved them, nice ego lift for me. nice lifting 100+ lbs more than my deadlift

how effective are they for the unequipped lifter?
Not as effective as in the suit but can be useful for sticking points, learning to get your hips through, and overload training.

Depends on where your sticking point is and what other weaknesses need to be worked on. But in general you couldnt go wrong with cycling them in three week waves, with pulls from the floor, and band pulls or deficits.

Just below your sticking point. If you dont know where that is I would do them about 3 inches below the bottom of you knee.

Don't use a deadlift bar to do rack pulls unless you own it. It will warp the bar.
