extremely impressive:) awesome vids, thanks man
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
I don't think it makes it easier at all, i've tried sumo deads just once, i can tell you this, it got my back hurting good, and i did light weight too, its just lifting up with legs out wide, not very pleasing for me.
ROM less or more, i don't think matters in deadlifting, but for someone like me it does since i have a problem with my joints, and cartilage
In addition to my previous comment, look at Andy Bolton, a world record deadlift using conventional stance. If sumo-stance would have allowed him to pull any more weight he would have used it.
Whereas Chuck Vogelpohl, another world class powerlifter pulls sumo stance.
Although I can't remember the source, I'm sure I have read that as a rule women generally pull better with a sumo stance due to their pelvic structure.
