Stretching legs on squat suit
 
Been having problems getting my new suit all of the way up. Measured tonight and I think I know why: suit = 23", quad = 27". Stretched it tonight with a football inflated to 27". Wet each leg and then inflated and left for an hour (see picture in next post). This has opened the legs up to 23.5". Question is how much more should I stretch it?

Added some brightness for those with dark, old monitors. (Like me)

Wish I could help, never used a squat suit.

I know the guys at my gym just squeeze in and allow the suit to break in as they use it.

Yeah that was my plan J but I can't squeeze all of the way in! :eek:

Anyone else?

At this stage I'll probably go another hour per leg on Saturday to take it up to around 24" opening and then use bags and slide that mofo up.

Can you not return it for a bigger leg size?

Nice hardwood flooring!

Thanks Dave. Original oak floorboards from when the house was built in the 19th century.

Really need the suit as tight as possible so don't want to go up a size if I can help it.

should fit now. If not, move the deflate the ball and move it higher into the leg. Remember that your leg will compress as it squeezes over it. Throw a little baby powder on the leg, and you may want to shave the hair as well.

Next time you slide it on, get it as high as you can. After that find a dip bar, or anything that you can slide the straps on. Hang on it one side at at time to keep working it up. Also pull the straps up and squat as hard and deep as you can with no weight to let it ride up. I think you will be in good shape this run.

Also, anytime you might need a question quickly....feel free to pm me. I will get that a lot quicker.

Awesome thanks J. Will give it a go on Sunday.
