Confused on Types of Lifting


#1

I have thought of this a few times as I am 6ft 1 and I see guys lifting similar to me at like 5ft ish but they use a wide sumo stance and it does not even look like they have moved the bar yet they lift pound for pound the same as me.

Am i overlooking it or is there something in that, just I watched a few meets where guys do a very wide sumo stance and they are quite short and the bar does not really go that far compared to a tall guy lifting equal load three times the distance...

maybe I am just ranting...

any thoughts on this...

this nonsense again?

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

You may not be able to out deadlift those guys but you more than likely can out rebound them.
