have you ever tried sumo deads?
it seems like the heavy hitters in the super heavyweight class all do conventional, where a lot of the lighter guys tend to lean more toward the sumo. is there a reason for this? i have tried sumo a couple of times, but it felt awkward. if i trained with it for a while and got use to it i may like it? any thoughts?
i gave them a shot this week...i didn't go quite so wide that would have had to worry about smashing my feet. just wide enough to get my arms between my knees. i did notice that i did not have to lift the weight near as far and was able to pull 405 for a hard 3 where i failed with the conventional after 2
Don't like sumo deads at all. I have a lot more power in a narrow stance. It all depends on whats more comfortable for you. A friend of mine switches back and forth every few months and continually makes deadlift PRs just from changing stance when one plateaus.
