It has been a very long time since I pulled sumo (about 3 years or so). I used to pull sumo all the time, though I'm not sure my technique was every really all that great. I've always had a problem with the weight coming forward when I break the floor. As the video below shows, I also seem to not be getting my chest up as much as I should. Tips for fixing both problems? Anything else you see that I need to work on?

it'd be a good idea to wear flat shoes instead of them nikes.

I think you look pretty solid. I focus on dropping my but and straightening my arms before I pull. That let's my chest stick out better.

Thanks for the feedback everybody. I'm trying to strike a balance between getting my hips too low (which leads to me being unable to break the floor) with getting my chest up and shoulders in line with the bar so the bar doesn't go forward on me at the start. I'll post up some videos next week when I do my deadlifts to see if I can put the advice in here into play.
