Anybody who has seen my deadlift videos know that my Conventional Deadlift forms suck balls. I have the cat back and all of that.

This guy can catback his Deadlifts. He holds world records. You and I do not.

Konstantīns Konstantinovs is one example of a guy who rounds his back during the conventional deadlift. But that is ONE GUY. He is the outlier.

And I can’t keep my back straight worth a dang.

Keep that in mind.

On a whim, I decided to switch to Sumo because 1) why not? and 2) it has been 2 years since I have tried. It didn’t feel great when I tried it before but this time, lets see.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Sumos are NOW MY BAE!

It felt so good. Even when I got shaky at 290#, I still felt strong and chalked that up to being a noob at sumo.

The best part?

 

Wookee there.
