A deadlift suit is a special piece of power lifting assistance clothing. The suits are made from very tight material. The material tightens on the squat on the way down, storing energy, that gives an extra boost with the stored tension to lift up. Thus, records are recorded with and without the suit. The starting position with a suit is slightly different to maximize use, so training with a suit is different. Wrist wraps are sometimes used to provide support, not necessarily to increase lift, like a suit. The world record strongman-style deadlift (where a suit, straps and hitching are allowed) is 500 kg (1,102.3 lb) by Eddie Hall. He also owns the partial deadlift world record at 536 kg (1,181.7 lb).
