Conventional Deadlifts – We have made the switch from pulling sumo to pulling conventional. Both of us feel we can pull more using the conventional style, and when your in a powerlifting the meet the point is to lift the most weight possible one time. Below I have posted pictures of the two different set ups, the one on the left is the SUMO position and the right is the CONVENTIONAL position.
Because neither of us have pulled conventional in about 6 months we worked up to a one rep max.
365 X 1, I then missed 405 four times in a row due to grip issues, then figured it out and GOT IT for one, finished up with 365 X 2, and 365 X 1
