I originally started doing as wide as I could without smashing my feet with the plates wide sumo, but that started taking its toll on my hips.
I then moved to semi-sumo which was better on my hips and I could move just as weight with it, but still put a lot of strain on the hips.
So I'm trying out conventional now. Without much practice it's only 15lbs behind my semi-sumo so I'm thinking if I get my low-back stronger and get my form closer to perfected, I can get the conventional to go up faster than I can get the semi-sumo to go up. Semi-sumo makes recovery take forever, but conventional doesn't take as much life out of me even at max rep or limit maxes for the days to come afterwards.
Any tips for the transition?
