I’ve been working on my conventional technique and it’s not really coming along. I keep extending my knee’s before I should…I’m lifting my hips/butt before any weight moves etc. I don’t really want to injure myself or just keep doing this until it’s such a bad habit where it’ll be even harder to fix.
So I was wondering…is it alright to do sumo deadlifts from an athletic standpoint and for lower-back etc. stick hard with stiff legs, romanians, GM’s etc?
I will be working with 135 conventional deadlift to practice form until it gets right, but until then will sumo deads, and after that for assistance (stiff legs, gm’s, frontSQ etc.) this will give me a strong base, and will probably allow me to pull quite a bit when I get the conventional form down pat.
What do you all think?
I’m assuming the sumo deadlifts can only help also…with the hips for kicking, hips for squatting etc.
