Should I be doing both or just stick with one?
so no advantages in switching around now and again?
i cant do conventional, my arms are too short or something
i think sumo is saposed to better mechanically, but it takes alot of practice to get the form down and such. I can pull prettty much the same with both.
thanks man, conventional is a cluster fuck for me at the moment. my gangly legs are all up in there like spaghetti.
I don't know. I'm 6'1, should conventional be easier? It seems like I can lift more with sumo. And it tires out a different part of my back -- am I crazy?
how close is everyone's legs on conventional? My feet are about 6 inches apart, and my arms are right outside my legs.
I put my feet a little less than shoulder width I dont know if I am doing them right or wrong though. I really regret joining the gym I did. And I am just doing conventional as i dont know how to do Sumo at all.
what bodily aspects would be more advantageous for a sumo lift?
eg. is it generally suited better to tall guys?
I switch up. I still do some form of deadlift almost every squat/dead day, so to keep from getting stale I do all kinds of variations.
I usually do conventional when training but I've always been able to pull more with sumo.
On DL's I do conv. Seem to be able to get more drive that way, even if I have to pull it higher. On squats I do sumo because it feels more stable and easier on my knees
I have only done conventional.
i squat both and pull sumo
right now my conv squat is higher than my wide stance which i am trying to change
I love it.
bend me over and call me alfred
ace of base playing in the background
Apparently not, cuz I listen to that sometimes too
That guy seems hilarious, and the garage gym looks pretty awesome
my football coaches always taught us to do sumo, so thats how i've been doin it since.
today i tried conventional for the first time, and i absolutely loved it, much better than sumo.
I've done conventional when I first started and saw great gains
when I switched to sumo, my weight lowered a bit, but it shot back up in no time. I think sumo helps prevent people from cheating. Now, I can do the same, if not more, with sumo than with conventional
