I did sumo squats and sumo deadlifts for the first time last night. I got the sumo squat form from dave draper’s site, where you use a dumbell on the floor in front of you and pick it up by the plates, like a sandwich.
After a while of alternating between the squats and deadlifts, I realized these exercised felt awfully similar (yeah, I’m slow). What was I doing wrong? I feel like I got a great workout, and am sore as hell, but I’m afraid I just did twice as many sets of squats as I planned.
I have no problem feeling the difference between more conventional squats and deadlifts–the sumo stance threw me off, tho. Any tips? Thanks.
