    need some advice

    on the reccomendation of my chiro I am giving sumo dl a try for a while. This is my forth work out doing them, I have been training steady for 19 years and have never done them before. I did alot of research and tried to follow advice of the articles i read, but more eyes the better. Here is one of my work sets from today. I was wearing an Inzer maxdl (36) straps down and a belt. 500x8, the weights starting slipping off the left side so i had to stop. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks, Jeff

    How sad do you have to be to lie to people on the internet. How weak or broken do you have to be to lie about how tough you are, how much you lift or how big or lean you are? You are lying to people you will never meet. The worst part is your the only one that does not see the lies show through so clearly. Just be happy with what you have, it may not be what you once had, but it is still better than many will ever have

    Looked good to me - I'm thinking of doing the same thing in switching to sumo for a bit.

    not sure yet Lone. I missed 635 because it came out away from me near my knees. I normally can open with 635 conv. I figure worse case the sumo stuff will just make my conv better. I do like the feeling of less wear and tear after the work out pulling sumo.

    I saw the shirt! Nice! Nice representin' of the brand :o).

    It looks like you have plenty of leg/hip drive, but the lockout is your relative weakness. Is that correct?

    Keep the bar in closer. Turn your toes out a bit more. Ensure your arms are completely straight at the start, if you flex the triceps you will know they are straight. Keep the head up a bit more at the start. Use baby powder on the legs as it is sticking to your thighs. Experiment with taking your stance out 1-2 inches on each side. Explode with the legs, feet through the floor, dont lift with the arms.

    Yeah, I was thinking some accessory work for your lockout and you will blow up your sumo!

    Try some band work as well. Heavy band work, not light. Use some high resistance bands and go as heavy with the barbell weight as you can and you will really work that lockout. The bands can help you exactly where you need it. I would suggest 3 weeks of band work and then resume sumo for 4-6 weeks alternating band work with the sumo. You will be pulling high 600s in no time!
