Sumo Deadlift and Plate Punches

galveston crossfit The Sumo deadlift is a variation of the deadlift whereby the legs are spread far apart mimicking the stance of a sumo wrestler. This variation shifts the emphasis of the lift and places more work on the hips and legs and a bit less work on the back. Depending on your build (think stumpy bridge troll….like me) the sumo deadlift may be easier to perform than the conventional deadlift. When doing the sumo deadlift, rather then focusing on pulling the weight up, focus on keeping your knees out wide and pushing your feet out to the sides as if you are trying to spread the floor apart with your feet. At the same time bring your hips forward. This will improve your leverage and allow you lift more weight. Focus on keeping as vertical a bar path as possible. Efficiency is key.
