I'm getting back to my regular training and my deadlift needs the most work out of all lifts.
I trained my dead conventional for my peak for my last meet it felt weak and slow because it feels like my technique completely gives out when the weight gets heavy. I ended up hitting a PR at the meet, but that also felt weak and slow.
The meet before that I trained my deadlift sumo for 8 months and pulled conventional at the meet which felt really good.
Experts have told me my conventional is better than my sumo and that I'm better off pulling conventional.
The biggest problem for my conventional is that my hips go up too fast and I go hunchback over 95%.
I now have the choice between training sumo and steadily bringing up my numbers(which, as I've experienced before, has a strong carryover to my conventional) or training my conventional and steadily bringing up my technique. You have to do the things you're weak at to get stronger right?
What would be the best course of action here? Am I wrong in thinking that sumo has more carryover to conventional? What would be the most effective way to program both styles?
I am leaning towards training sumo as my main deadlift movement, while keeping conventional deads as lighter assistance and volume work to program the correct movement pattern.
