steficohen- Sumo Deadlift vs Conventional Deadlift

Wed, 05/30/2018 - 09:51 -- admin
Both deadlift versions are fully body lifts placing stress on back, hips, knees, and ankles primarily. Which one is the right for you? What is the purpose of the lift for each patient or athlete, and what are your strengths/weaknesses? Which one is easier? - Both variations have their pros and cons. The Sumo Deadlift uses a wider base of support, less distance for the bar to travel from floor, increases quad stress, and places less stress on the athlete’s spinal extensors (i.e. more vertical spine). It allows for reduced ankle DF range of motion for those that are stiff in the ankle joint.

janisfinkelman- 480 for a single sumo at 143. Not my competition stance, not peaked, it wasn’t a max, and it actually felt pretty easy. Trust me I am aware this is my weaker variation, and I know my sumo looks like a duck is trying to deadlift. Video #2 Did light squatting 4 x 4 before doing 5 deficit deadlift doubles with 415. Sets 3 and 4 shown here. These were absolute hell. Like I felt terrible about myself while doing them. Idk man.
