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