    Sumo form check?

    Hey all.

    Broke my right ankle and fibula mid last year. Ever since getting back to lifting in October, my deadlift has suffered.

    I was able to maintain a pretty flat back prior and for whatever reason now it just isn’t going well.

    I think i want to switch to a narrow stance sumo deadlift and messed around with it yesterday up to 335 on my final set.

    Is the form decent before i build up from here?

    One thing to work on is the lateral movement of the bar. Watch it at the start of each rep and it moves forward and back again.

    Stop looking in the mirror and brace core better. Along with what Jason said. It's the result of your hips rising without your torso following suit after the weight leaves the ground.

    Honestly im flexing my core as much as I possibly can.

    It feels much harder to keep my shoulders tight with sumo than conventional.

    It looks like after initial lift-off the bar is moving forward and backward a little. Bar should always be in line with mid foot. Keeping the bar against your shins helps stabilize that. Also, you’re looking up a little too much, you should keep your neck and head neutral with spine. What I do to help keep my head neutral is to close my eyes when lifting and picture what your body is doing in your mind. But back and hips look fine to me for the most part
