So, nothing rational then!?
General consensus is sumo is easier and because there is a reduced ROM and mechanical advantage for some lifters it is 'cheating'. As an exercise it is good as it has carryover to conventional DL and squat but some people feel it shouldn't be allowed vs conventional DL in competition. No different to wide grip bench to a high arch v narrower flat back benching.
Interestingly sumo is an absolute no in strongman comps...
There’s nothing rational about a man pulling sumo chap.
Stick with sumo mate in your case. You’ve got an excuse as you’ve got back issues. Sumo might help to strengthen your hips and open them up to enable you to one day pull conventional but I’d progress your sumo for now as you’ve already noted more leg drive on bench this week so something is working in opening your hips up.
Sumo’s a tool but that’s it. It’s got no place in competition, it’s like an SLDL or a defecit but a gay version.
ok, will continue to peruse Max's jorno for inspiration for a bit longer
Deadlifts allllll day long.
Nothing wrong with sumo. Just a variation isn’t it. Lever lengths are never the same.
Case in point
@Max says there's nothing wrong with sumo
He also says there's nothing wrong with a heterosexual man fucking another man in the ass and fisting aresholes.
