Which do you prefer and why?
Whataver gains me the biggest pull
I prefer sumo, just pulled 405 this week for the first time
i feel cheated doing sumo.
the sumo pull is for reducing range of motion on a competition pull. unless you are competing, you have no reason to pull sumo
I prefer sumo because it's easier on my back. Places greater emphasis on the lower back and hamstrings too
i pull traditional... just feels right
i squat real wide though
I dislike sumo
I like to work my hammies with hypers and GMs
Would you say the same for wide stance squats? Because I squat like that, and it's raw (not Chuck V wide of course)
yea same here
Traditional, but my lower back is so weak that I strained it last week and can't DL or squat until at least monday, maybe longer.
Conventional 4 lyfe
I think next time I DL I am going to try sumo and see how it feels.
how's yur summer goin nga?
i dont have the strength to break the weight off the floor in sumo
Traditional 'cuz I'm used to that.
Fucking christ please change your av.
wred nga, i squat wide as well
If you're squatting really wide without briefs all I can say is be careful with your hips and groin.
non ho capito
i dont understand
not like crazy wide, but wider than a standing stance (i have wide shoulders so it helps with my balance and control) and also i dont like to squat with my feet parallel at a right angle. usually slightly pointing outside center of body
By wide I mean just outside of shoulder width
Oh I'm talking about Chuck V wide.
THe higher part of my DL rep is actually my weakest point (like I said, I strained my lower back last week doing DL's that were fairly easy on every other part of my posterior chain).... I know pin pulls would help that a lot, but I really don't want to do them because of how much F&N has made fun of them
