Awesome lift and great technique. Digging the narrow stance.[/quote]
Thank you. I used to pull with a wider stance, and consequently think it was responsible for contributing to a terrible back injury that prevented me from deadlifting for 3 years. Once I started again, I used the narrow stance, and had zero back pain.
I feel that a narrower stance allows you to get better leg drive off the floor, whereas when you use a wider stance you are forced to stiff leg the weight up. Additionally, a narrower stance allows you to bring your grip in more, which can aid in setting up a better back angle.
