    Pretty pointless to a bodybuilder

    Some powerlifter use it because they lift more with sumo than conventional

    it just works a few diffrent muscles..idealy in the legs....also its mainly just for ppl who prefer that diffrent leverage or are more comfortable with it.....was told this by ppl in the power lifting forums... i do both sometimes...i feel a better pump with sumo deads but i can lift more with the normal stance..but am less comfortable.

    I lift more with sumo and it favors my build.

    I don't do the super wide sumo. It's like semi-sumo.
    Always pick 4 crew :(
    Too lazy to update avi crew.

    OP I tried sumo for the first time yesterday. As someone with two herniated discs and one bulging, I cannot do traditional deads without putting my back into a compromising position. Sumo's are a ton better for me, they take the back almost completely out of the equation and it KILLS your legs. I didn't go super wide, maybe a little more than shoulder width, but kept my hands close in the middle of the bar. Going to be a staple in my leg workouts now. Highly recommended.

    its like the low bar vs high bar squat argument. some people are just better built for one or the other. also sum stance lowers the range of motion on the deadlift so most powerlifters favor that stance. Yet the top deadlifters use conventional stance, so it goes both ways.

    It doesn't let you lift more weight. It is good for the posterior chain. Hard to beat sumos from a platform of 5 inches or so. You will feel it the next day.

    It's primary a quad and adductor dominated lift. The hamstring and glutes are still used extensively though; however, not nearly as much as pulling conventional. It also allows you have a more upright starting posture which some people like to have. If your objective is to gain size I would stick to a conventional deadlift.

    You will be able to lift more with sumo if your legs over power your back, which is not the case for me. Doing regular deads I pull more weight than sumo despite it being less comfortable because I have a strong back, especially low back.

    I started pulling sumo primarily 5 months ago or so, and it has hammered by hamstrings, glutes, and inner thighs.

    Even though I have done less than 10 reps conventional since switching to sumo, I still pull more conventional

    No it is not. Some can pull more sumo, other pull more conventional. Look at the top deadlifters most pull conventional. Why would they not pull sumo if they could pull more weight?

    Only reason when I switch to sumo is: HEIGHT

    With my height I need to bend my knees too much for proper deadlifts with touch and go, so when going sumo I eliminate bending my knees too much (a little still happens) and can focus on the actual part I want to hit: my hamstrings and glutes.

    my hams always get killed when i do sumo....never felt them in my quads...pretty sure they get worked too

    All the deadlift records were set with conventional. I see the sumo dead as a lift for strong squatters who suck at DLing
    inb4 Socrates quote

    Best gym lifts:
    Squat: 475x9
    Bench Press: 315x6
    Deadlift: 545x9
    Seated OHP: 245x4
