I’m new to powerlifting and so far I’ve been experimenting between conventional stance and sumo stance. But I have a hard time deciding what is right for me.
My conventional is stronger at the moment, however I have to travel much farther. Sumo is weaker probably due to getting the form down correctly and the fact that my legs are probably a weak-point.
The thing is I’ve had several very good deadlifters tell me that sumo is the way to go if you wanna be the best you can be for deadlift. (And vice versa)
What do the experienced competing lifters recommend as far as stance? Also, maybe people could post their best deadlift and their stance. I’m curious to see what the replies will be.
Any help would be appreciated!
Also, I would be competing in a single-ply fed, FYI.
