hello all, how did you figured out which style is yours ?? i train both , sumo and conventionel , the difference is now , 25 pounds more with sumo stance . this is when i do deadlift-only or push and pull comps.

is this the fact to do it sumo ?

Sounds right. I train both styles heavy with many variations. When it comes time to do a meet I use whichever style I feel I can make the highest attempt with.

How tall are you, and what other movements do you do for your lower body. I would choose a style with the shortest bar path and set up your other movements to around that lift. try it for 6 months and see where your at. I pull conventional because of my height. I do a lot of work off a 3 to 5 inch platform (50-60% volume). locking out weight for me is not the issue, it's speed and leg drive. I suck at sumo, period not an option. Just pulled 700 at a meet in York Pa.

Pull which ever way you are strongest in a meet but train both.

Sumo dlers are born not made. Try both styles extensively and then pull the best way at the show. You must pull weights over 85 percent to get a true idea of sumo, light weights will fly, but can you grind out a tough one?

yeah its true .. for example i could do 2 x 10 paused reps with belt only with 500 lbs conventionel ...and only 8 times on a sumoday , same weight !

BUT my singles are different , best sumo was 630 lbs and best conventionel was 607 lbs... thats why i am a lil bit confused .

Just keep getting stronger and keep pulling both ways, I'm sure at some point during your training you will find one better than the other. Stick with Matt's plan, it looks like a good template for your needs. Keep working hard.

ive always wondered myself...

will increasing your pulling weight on one stance correlate to any kind of increase in the other?

nailed it....

train both, and stick with the strongest and most comfortable.

I personally feel that it does and that is why I use both.

i figured out yesterday , that, when i am using the conventional deadlift after my squat (matt rhodes raw squat program) i am stronger than sumo ...and when i train deadlift first or be on a deadlift meet , than sumo is better ...

For me it was easy, I'm more powerful pulling conventional. I still train sumo though too.
