    the sumo pull is for reducing range of motion on a competition pull. unless you are competing, you have no reason to pull sumo

    I prefer sumo because it's easier on my back. Places greater emphasis on the lower back and hamstrings too

    Would you say the same for wide stance squats? Because I squat like that, and it's raw (not Chuck V wide of course)

    Traditional, but my lower back is so weak that I strained it last week and can't DL or squat until at least monday, maybe longer.

    If you're squatting really wide without briefs all I can say is be careful with your hips and groin.

    not like crazy wide, but wider than a standing stance (i have wide shoulders so it helps with my balance and control) and also i dont like to squat with my feet parallel at a right angle. usually slightly pointing outside center of body

    THe higher part of my DL rep is actually my weakest point (like I said, I strained my lower back last week doing DL's that were fairly easy on every other part of my posterior chain).... I know pin pulls would help that a lot, but I really don't want to do them because of how much F&N has made fun of them :o
