best post!! Thanks for that :D!
I actually pull sumo and conventional
One workout I focus on lighter sumo and do DL deficit
and then the other workout I do heavy conventional and heavier sumo
I decided to start doing both because I couldn't for the life of me decide which way I wanted to pull, but I feel a lot stronger doing sumo, even though it's a hybrid like others have said.
For example, I pulled 240 for a double without a smidgen of self doubt doing sumo, and 235 for two name near killed me, Lol.
I find it really hard not to compare my form with other people's, but I gotta keep reminding myself that being 5'0 changes my leverages a fair a bit and maybe things aren't going to look quite the same.
