Fuuuuu I hate it when the plates roll off of the blocks!
I’d try to get your hips closer to the bar at set-up by opening up your hips/knees a bit more. It’s hard to tell from this angle, but you might also be a bit too far in front of the bar at set-up, though it’s also difficult to say for block pulls. This might also help solve the fact that your hips rise out of the starting position a bit early. Maybe even go for a bit of a wider stance, but that’s a personal thing.
I’ve found that doing a shit ton of hip mobility work before training (and a bit every day) has helped me out and ultimately made my pulls much more efficient. I know that this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but sumo is highly technical and requires decent hip mobility.
Here’s a great sumo warm-up article I found, featuring IPF lifter Connor Lutz, who sometimes posts here
THE ART OF THE SUMO DEADLIFT ? PART 2: MOBILITY
Ye hate that shieet, almost got my toes killed
But really thx for your advice and the article man! Really New to this but it Felt kinda good for Trying it out for the first time. But i guess better mobility/flexibilitet & proper Setup & ofc just learning the groove will Add a decent amount of kg:s (Atleast ill. Hope)
Those articles from Connor Lutz are great resources. I’d suggest reading them both.
It looks like you’re trying to conventional deadlift with a wide stance. and unfortunately it isn’t that simple lol There’s actually a lot of little things that you aren’t doing quite right that add up to an inefficient pull. I’m going to suggest you look at part I of the article kgildner suggested as well and if you have any more questions I’ll try to help but I really think after you read that you’ll have all the necessary knowledge to build a solid sumo deadlift.
Sorry dude, posting the URL didn’t work, I hope you could find the article! As tylerkeen said, the first part is really worth looking at.
Ye found it thanks! Read it like 3 times by now and figured out some stuff i need to improve
