Conventional vs Sumo

Deadlifts are probably the most basic lift technically, and as long as you can perform a proficient hinge pattern, getting into a good position shouldn't be difficult.⁣ ⁣ Everyone should start learning the basic hinge pattern, which progresses onto loading that pattern - conventional deadlifts. You can get VERY strong simply using this style, and many successful Powerlifters use conventional deadlifts.⁣ ⁣ A sumo deadlift is a play on bio-mechanics, where, if done correctly, we can position ourselves in a more advantageous position.⁣ ⁣ I wrote a small blog post on the basic bio-mechanics of sumo deadlifting a while ago.⁣ ⁣ 👉 ⁣⁣⁣ ✔ Powerlifting Coaching⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ✔ Online Coaching and Programs⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ✔ Game Day Coaching⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ✔ Competition Planning⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ✔ Technique and Skills Coaching
