    Sumo deadlifting Versus Conventional

    Sumo deadlifting versus conventional, your opinion?
    for sumo, shins inside rings, butt out, chest out and head to the ceiling.
    I am a tall person, and the advice i was given was that I should be doing Sumo instead of conventional and I am honestly not sure why

    I believe it's because people with longer arms would have a shorter ROM when pulling sumo and it feels more natural to them then conventional. Personally I've done both and I pull more with conventional, but then again I'm a manlet. Try both and see what suits you better.

    It's not only about height, it's arm and torso length. If you have long arms and short to average torso, you're more suited for conventional. If you have short arms and an average to long torso you're more suited for sumo.

    1. Secure a tape measure to the wall with the zero end at the floor. Make sure the metric side (centimeters) is what you are using.

    2. Stand with your back against the wall. Measure from the top of your shoulder to the floor. This will give you your total body measurement.

    3. With a straight arm and your hand in a fist, measure from the top of your shoulder to the middle of your fist. This is your total arm length.

    4. Raise your thigh to determine where your thigh rotates into your pelvis. Once located, lower your leg to the floor and measure from the top of the shoulder to this point. This is your trunk length. Also, subtract this measurement from your total body measurement to give you your lower body length.

    Record these measurements and perform the following calculations:

    1. Divide "trunk length" by "arm length".
    2. Divide "trunk length" by "lower body length".

    The resultant numbers will tell you the following:

    1. Arm to trunk length ratio. Example: If your truk is 50 cm and your armi is 65 cm, divide 65 into 50=0.77. This indicates that your trunk is 77% of your arm length or that your arm is 23% longer than your trunk.

    2. Trunk to lower body length ratio.

    These numbers will help you determine which method, conventional or sumo, will allow you to lift the most weight by biomechanical standards.

    CONVENTIONAL
    If your trunk to arm ratio is less than 0.82 and your trunk to lower body length is less than 0.55, you should consider the conventional style. With your arms longer than your trunk, you'll finish the pull with the bar below your hip joint. This finishing position indicates that the initial starting position of your trunk (trunk angle) will be larger (more upright). This would indicate more activity from the quads as well as the hamstrings and glutes. A more upright trunk angle will also create a larger knee angle at the starting position, making the shift of the shoulders, knee, and hip more uniform-that is, they rotate in a biomechanically correct sequence.

    SUMO
    If your ratios are larger than 0.82 and 0.55, the initial starting angle of your trunk would be smaller (more inclined) and will therefore position you in a biomechanically inefficient position. With your trunk more inclined, the activity of your trunk and hip extension muscles will have to follow a different, more inefficient pattern. This will basically result in increased activity from your hamstrings and glutes and decreased activity from the quads. This will also increase stress on your erectors and particularly the lower back and could cause rounding of your upper back. The solution would be sumo.

    Give both a shot and see which one is more comfortable to you. I have more fun and feel better pulling sumo, but I pull bigger weights conventional. Go figure.

    In a powerlifting sense, train both. Working one way helps the other, and vice versa. For pure muscle building purposes, I would think conventional hits more back muscles.

    Only sumo has carry over to conventional, just like wider a squat stance will have carry over to a more narrow stance.

    Kinda the opposite OP. Sumo tends to be used by guys who are big squatters/benchers and have short arms because getting into position for conventional is harder for them. So arm length to height ratio matters alot. Sumo is all in your hips where conventional is more back/hamstrings.

    I pull more sumo but mostly pull conventional due to it hitting the posterior chain better especially since that is a weak area for most people.

    I do pull sumo regularly after my back starts getting tired on conventional.

    I have heard people fall into 2 categories mostly: 1 long legs and arms with short torso or 2 long torso and short legs and arms

    1 is better for conventional and 2 is better for sumo

    conventional: possibly safest method of deadlifting when done correctly. most posterior chain activation. only method allowed in most powerlifting federations

    sumo: much more quad activation. distance to lockout is shortened. hip/groin injuries are much more prominent. not as much back activation

    sumo: much more quad activation. distance to lockout is shortened. hip/groin injuries are much more prominent. not as much back activation
    Since when is sumo not allowed? One isnt easier than the other. Most people pull whatever they can pull most with plain and simple.

    I'm not heavily versed in the many PL federations, but I don't know any that actually forbid sumo. If what you say is true, SamSix, I'd like to see a list of feds that do not allow sumo.

    it isnt allowed in some strongman stuff but that is because it is a car deadlift not a true PL deadlift. i cannot think of any instance where it is not allowed in PL'ing
