Sumo deadlift form check

  1. Sumo deadlift form check


    I know my form is garbage. It seems like it isn't when I lift, but I can tell by watching the video. So how can I fix this?

  2. First off .. iron maiden. Yes!
    You are starting off all wrong. You need sit on your arse a bit more. Tighten your whole body, take slack off the bar, lift with your whole body and squueze those glutes at the top.
    It looks like your are lifting with your back

    Massive improvement in this one, doesn’t look like you are fully locking out though - at the top of the lift the glutes should be squeezed and forward with a full standing position.

    This. I think what would help you in that regard is trying to be conscious of keeping your core engaged. If youíre contracting your glutes and keeping your core tight and engaged (picture trying to theoretically bring your belly button and your glutes together), I think youíll naturally want to lock out at the top better. And remember to push through with your heels and not your toes, which will help you lock out too.

    On a side note, congrats to successfully being able to deadlift in your living room. Iíd be dropping that barbell when Iím fatigued and itíd go right through my floor.

  7. Second one looks better than the first. However, in both of them, you're still pulling conventional from a sumo stance. When you pull sumo, you're going to want to think about spreading the floor apart with your feet and forcing your hips to the bar while simultaneously pulling the bar backward with your lats, not standing up with it like you would conventional.

    Watch this, very thorough and has some good tips: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQZ-RwYVLlc

    Also, chair deadlifts will help with sumo form: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnEsI7uf4f0
