Default conventional to sumo deadlift - 12-24-2011, 09:29 PM

As of recent, I've decided to make the switch to sumo style since i've been reading that training this way and competing conventional gets you a very good carry over. Have any of you gone through this and did it hold its truth when you switch back to conventional? I ask this because when i was deadlifting today I did one set conventional and the weight felt a bit heavier than when I would deadlift sumo; not to mention the movement felt awkward. Why is this?

IMO, the start of the movement using very different muscles. I had always done conventional and then switched to sumo for over a year and became a big fan. But I've switched back and felt like I wasn't quite as strong. I dunno really...I've got back issues and a hip issue. I'm a wreck really haha! But I choose to work around it and go with ever bothers me the least.

different muscles used with the bar being more center of gravity to your hips.also using your quads a bit more in the movement.i would do these before i would do conventional deads.

I agree with recarp. I have back issues and sumo doesnt bother my back, where as conventional I am sore in a bad way for a week or two. IMO sumo is also safer in the long run. I actually prefer trap bar deadlifts over both.

I'm a big sumo fan. I used it when I powerlifted. I deadlifted 425 at 165 pound body weight. I miss being able to lift heavy.
