I have found the light, after deadlifting sumo for the past 1.5 years (my whole lifting career) I recently have gone into a slump with my deadlift, decided to test the waters on my conventional deadlift and realized it feels much better and I dont have any of the same problems I do with sumo (unable to get into position, power off the floor, sliding) and ive been stuck in the mid 400’s for the past 6 months.
I just wanted to get a training max so I went up to 405 to see how it felt and Im going to start there (probably couldve hit 3-5 reps) so I can relearn the cues and form.
Any tips on switching? Only problems I felt was having the bar a little far out which resulted in my balance being on my toes, which can be fixed easily. (No video but can post one next time I deadlift)
