Would this help my raw squat any?
I've heard sumo pulls will really help out my hips, and exploding at the bottom of the squat is something that will always need to be improved upon. The faster I come out of the hole the more weight I'll be able to lockout.
In theory, this makes sense, although I don't know of anyone who's done this. For general strength in building up the hips and hamstrings it might be helpful. My initial thought is that a SQ variation might be better in building the raw SQ, but that's just a guess.
i think a wide squat would help a sumo deadlift more than a sumo deadlift would help the wide squat.

deadlifting just doesn't seem to have nearly as much carryover to the squat as the squat has to the deadlift.
TRY Zercher squats they hit everything.
