    sumo deadlifts vs conventional deadlifts

    i recently made a thread about squatting low bar vs high bar and found out my body type prefers to squat high bar for maximum power output, so with that information i am wondering whether sumo deadlifting or conventional deadlifting would suit my body strengths. please help?

    Nobody can tell you this, you need to experiment with both methods and figure it out yourself.
    Being a real lifter is not about a number, or a medal, or somebody else telling you that you are a real lifter. It is about commitment to the iron and strength of purpose.

    It's hard to say. If you have long arms then conventional may be the way to go. If you've got shorter arms then you may wanna try sumo. Sumo is gonna require more hip and hamstring stength. Conventional is gonna require more from your lower back. Everyone is built differently so you'll just have to experiment and see. I'm 5'7 200lbs with pretty short arms and legs. Sumo seems to be the most optimal way for me to pull.

    Improve my total every time I step on the platform.

    Being a male is a matter of birth. However, being a "man" is a matter of choice.

    Photo in Avi is not current, I'm way fatter now.

    Post up a video of it, if you have a video. That would probably help people see your dimensions to a degree, and help give people an idea whether sumo or conventional would work best for you.

    Holy shiznit, I didn't realize I had long arms. I knew my torso was kinda short, but wow. Says conventional is the best for me, and that's how I pull so I guess that's good. (29" torso and 29" arms at 68 inches, btw)

    Damn, SPFJudge beat me to posting the article. I've always pulled conventional. This article showed me that I can pull both. But I have much larger arms percentage-wise than torso, so I guess conventional would still be better.

    Whatever you are more comfortable with. I switched to sumo to try it out one time and was hooked. I also got my conventional to within 20 lbs of my best sumo though so its really a personal preference unless you are trying to break records right now. I am more comfortable and feel stronger in the sumo position, but I can still get stornger in the conventional style as well.
    Current Bests (raw/singleply)

    Squat- 435 / 512.5
    Bench- 280 / 308.5
    Deadlift- 495/ 534

    Goals:

    - Squat 500, Bench 325, Deadlift 550 raw at 181-220.

    - Give the recreational bodybuilder thing a solid effort.
