View Full Version : Stupid question, I know...

Deadlifts - are you allowed to grip the bar:
1) in sumo stance
2) with a normal hands over grip (as opposed to alternating)
in an official meet?

Again, I'm sorry for the stupid question, I just can't remember the deadlift rules (I am an APA/WPA member, I've just been inactive for a LONG time and I only do bench at meets)...and don't give me any usual newb bull**** flaming for forgetting, I've been on this forum for 5+ years and lifting for 8.

in a sumo stance you can use a normal grip, hook grip or the typical mix grip.
