ok here is my problem. i would like to start CT’s Deadlifting for Stubby Guys routine. I deadlift sumo style. the only way ive found that i can deadlift from a deficit is by doing it in the power rack.
But once i put a second plate on the ground to stand on, it slightly goes over the bottom on the powerrack and may slip during the set. and i need to get to an 8 inch deficit. i dont really know how many inches the plates our and such but, i was thinking if i deadlifted with 25s that would make a pretty big deficit, and then add a plate or 2 to stand on, but i dont even think thats 8 inches but i dunno.
how do you sumo guys pull from a deficit?
