It’s the weekend. Enjoy it but don’t slack off. Keep grinding and pushing forward. No matter the setbacks, the aches and pains or the off days... those who struggle to stay at the front of the pack fall to the back where the rest of the weak are picked off one by one. #SavTac
This is a topic people love to discuss about.
You hear people say "sumo is cheating" "conventional is the only way."... come on man, where's the truth?
When it comes to these two different styles of pulling, different set ups will maximally activate different muscles. However, when it comes to the main differences in muscle activity, according to EMG studies, there are mainly just two. In a nutshell:
Sumo deadlifts will put a greater emphasis on the quads (when puling the bar off the floor), compared to a Conventional Style DL.
Conventional deadlifts will put a greater emphasis on the erector spinae (when pulling the bar off the floor), compared to a Sumo Style DL.
Hamstrings/glutes activity results to be about the same.
Personally I think they both are amazing exercises, and that both should be trained. Also, none of them is "easier" than the other, since anatomical differences & differences in muscle strength would play a big part in
choosing what style might fit best/feel better. If you want me to talk more about this, spam that comment section. Which deadlift variation is your favorite? I'll
say sumo 🔥🔥🔥TAG Somebody who needs to see this!

My squat game has always been my weakest. But I’m working hard to improve it. On a night of feeling dehydrated and starving because I haven’t eaten since lunch; I PR a 3RM at 310lbs. Left me feeling good. 25lb PR. Thanks JP for coaching and recording me. #crossfitcerberus#squats#powerlifting#asstograss#crossfit
