is the Sumo Dead lift style frowned upon in the CF community?  Can it be used in the games?

There is no reason not to do sumo style lifting.  The rules at the games precluded its use in the past.

Works the abductors and hamstrings big time. The benefit is real world application.

used it in the first set today in the 3 rep WOD (225#) and felt low back twinge on last rep.  Twinges always scare me, so i reverted back to the standard technique that we use with feet shoulder width.  Do you use the Sumo?  Would you guys recommend it?

One of the guys I workout with once in a while only does sumo deadlift.  He claims it’s a remnant of powerlifting in college.  Sumo DL is definitely speedier in Metcons, given the slightly shorter ROM.

I don’t, but will be.

I don’t know what %age of your 3RM the 225 was, but if you’re making a radical change in your deadlifting style, I hope it was low.
Sumo uses a lot more hip than conventional style deadlifting and if you haven’t built that up to accommodate it you’re going to transfer the load to the next structure under load and that’s your back.
Also if you have problems with hip flexibility you may get some odd position of your hips to compensate and that can lead to real hincky things happening in the L5 S1 area.


It’s a really good technique for a lot of reasons, but if you’re going to switch to it, give yourself time to settle in before you go hard.

hello sir,


There was a day when bodybuilders were characterized by thick massive torsos, tumbling traps, and sweeping lats that hung like boxcar doors from broad-beamed shoulders. All this came about from slapping as many iron plates as possible onto a barbell and dead lifting it off the ground in whatever manner it took to get the weight up.

The deadlift is the oldest of all weight training exercises and is one of the most effective exercises for overall body development. Deadlifts are not pretty and neither are the men who hoisted them, but this movement made their physiques the biggest, thickest, and strongest in the world.


Thanks,

While that would be fun, how then do we recognize spammers?

Yes, and the more they post about matchmaking, the better TP begins to look…

That too.

I banned him/her and deleted some of the other posts. Kept this one as it makes the topic make sense if I do.
And the link in the signature is still there, it just doesn’t point where it used to.
