    Do sumo wrestlers lift?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEe-U...eature=related Just watched a video compilation of the recent champions fights, Asashouryuu. Needless to say he is either extremely naturally strong, or he lifts. He would have made a ridiculous Guard in football in America or powerlifter. This guy has some ridiculous explosion for someone 300lbs and manhandles 350-500+lb guys. He is the lightest sumo champion ever. He has other videos out there where he basically overpowers people 100lbs+ heavier then him crazy.

    So what do you think, do sumo wrestlers lift? From what I'm aware of they don't do any training other then eat, and sumo wrestle a bit.

    Asashouryuu supposedly lifts.

    there are reports in japanese newspapers of him benching 200kg.

    he's actually reached within a kilo or two of the average weight of sumo wrestlers being that he's now about 148kg. his fighting style relies on his speed (somewhat diminished with his heavier weight now) and his strength which has obviously improved. he's also got good technique as you can see, he stays very balanced.

    why on earth would he powerlift? you do know that high ranking Sumo are treated like royalty right? they make a ton of money and are catered to hand and foot. he'd be out of his mind to give that up for the IPF.

    I don't believe its a part of traditional sumo training but it definitely should be.

    He is my current favorite but hes nothing compared to the greatest of all time Takanohana. He retired about 5-10 years ago.

    Check out how big some of the other guys are.

    Traditionally, sumo wrestlers don't train with weights. If this dude trains with weights than sumo is changing. Maybe that has a lot to do with why he's so good. In the past they did nothing but sit around and eat, sleep, and wrestle. The guys on the bottom rung are submissive and serve the top guys (no homo).

    Then, there is that infamous study that Doggcrapp likes to use often to illustrate why guys should eat so much....'some dudes did a muscle measurement study of sumo wrestlers, powerlifters, and bodybuilders...the sumo wrestlers had the most muscle on their bodies, powerlifters came in second, bodybuilders third'

    About halfway down the page is the pay scale. Its not much compared to American and European athletes.

    I was watching the national geographic thing on sumo wrestlers, and shows them basically living in some barn where they would just eat and wrestle a bit and seemed the champion didn't even do much. It would make sense that he lifted, since he looks to be carrying some muscle around his shoulders, chest, arms, legs, and back not to mention how strong he is in the ring.

    Do you know if its against the rules to lift weights-I know they have a lot of strict rules with sumo wrestlers-? It would obviously help a lot I would think. Also anyone have that study about the sumo wrestlers carrying the most muscle, I have heard it several times but never saw anything on it.

    Needless to say this guy is a solid athlete, great balance, speed, and strength.

    ya that was hilarious, also crazy since he is probably 500lbs or so and is a pro trained to stay grounded yet he still gets picked up and thrown out by this guy.

It would make sense that he lifted, since he looks to be carrying some muscle around his shoulders, chest, arms, legs, and back not to mention how strong he is in the ring.

    Do you know if its against the rules to lift weights-I know they have a lot of strict rules with sumo wrestlers-? It would obviously help a lot I would think. Also anyone have that study about the sumo wrestlers carrying the most muscle, I have heard it several times but never saw anything on it.

    Needless to say this guy is a solid athlete, great balance, speed, and strength.
    I saw a show like that. the lowest ranking people in the barn had to do EVERYTHING for the champions too. Clean the whole place, make all the food, etc.

    In Japan Sumo wrestlers are taken into a family of sorts and then live with other sumo wrestlers and training is their life.

    I wrestled in one of the first Sumo wrestling promotions in North America which never took off. We did 2 a days monday thru thursday and shows Fri and Sat.

    Morning was Sumo workout (all together)

    Evening was with trainer at the GYM lifting and cardio if you chose to (most didn't)

    The Guy who started it is still a good friend of mine as was my roomate for years. He was a retired Pro Ball player who played for NY jets and Toronto Argo's he is legendary as a Argos player. If you have ever seen any football movie where the lineman turns to the running back and says somthing like "follow me and they will never touch you" that is from him in a playoff game he really said that in a 70's playoff game against ottawa rough riders lol. It made its way into the running backs book a few years latter then in a couple movies.


    Anyway this is what he does now.
