    Indeed it is. The lift is awesome, regardless of date, though. And I'm amazed the host still has it up. Anyway, does everyone use that stance when they DL? Because I have serious work to do if so.

    It turns out the answer to every question is still deadlift and eat.

    I know it's a great lift, but he can likely do more at this point in time.

    No, not everyone does sumo style deadlifts (legs spread wide apart). I do conventional deadlifts (legs about shoulder width) at the moment, but I plan to possibly switch to sumo because I think I can pull more that way.

    I like a really wide sumo stance cause the bar doesnt hit my shins as much.

    I'm jealous. Did you see how far the weight moved, I'd say about a foot. I'm 6'1" and when I dead(standard) the weight rises over two feet.
