    Do you pull more when using a sumo or conventional style?

    conventional. weak hips, can't get anything over 425 off the floor

    edit: your form looks a lot better in that style too

    Yeah, it's too bad that sumo isn't allowed at strongman shows. :hs:

    good job, i remember seeing your other deadlift videos and you made a great improvement switching over to sumo. and who the fuck was that guy that walked behind you on your first lift? i hate people who do that because it fucks up my concentration when looking at the mirror

    very good pulls. proves my theory that sumo works good for short lightweight lifters , and conventional good for tall, heavy people in powerlifting. now if you are short and heavy consider benching , and if you are tall and light consider basketball, lol. yea it sucks that you cant use sumo in strongman.....but you are allowed to hitch there so i guess thats fine.

    There's at least two of them that are giants. However, I'm only 5'5", so it's all relative. ;)

    what's with the random single treadmill in the middle of all the free weights behind you?

    There is actually a bunch of other treadmills, bikes, etc. around there.

    I don't know the reason, but it's in the NAS rules.

    in most strongman NAS comps the deadlift is done with tires which raises the bar 6" and using a 2" thick bar, so if youdo sumo and you are dieselwiesels height the rom would be only 2"

    The no sumo rule also applied to the deadlift for reps event that I did at the 2005 Strongest Man in Pennsylvania show, last October. That event was just like a regular deadlift (from the floor and with plates, not tires) except you could use straps and do as many reps as possible in 60 seconds.

    I'm useless w/o sumo so there goes my strongman dreams.

    I haven't watched the video yet because this computer is gay but I'm gonna assume you pulled in the suit. How do you like pulling in that thing?

    still they do these things to disadvantage small lifters who use technique to lift weights as much as the heavier lifters do. such as the safe overhead press in wsm, would disadvantage a person who can push press/jerk press a lot of weight. maybe instead of strongman try considering olympic lifting?
