Because it is fake. Fred is dead on. The shirts really were a safety issue when they first came out. Now equipped lifting should really be called assisted lifting because that is what has transpired. The equipment is lifting the weight. Squat suits get you off bottom now, bench shirts add up to 200lbs on your bench and deadlift suits get you off the floor. I love punting to the Tyson Myers saying - if you can not lift it raw then you really can not lift it. The equipped lifting is really dying out in NASA. I want to know that I really lifted the weight, I do not want false claim of strength. But I am also proud to be a lifetime drug free lifter also.
