    Default Sumo and super Bench arches.

    Are lifters with tiny roms stronger ?does it hurt the sport from a mainstream perspective to see the manipulation of powerlifting rules?Now dont get me wrong im not trying to come across as disrespectful to peeps who train hard and put up huge numbers but to my way of thinking a big conventional pull is badass.Ditto for bench.You ve probabaly seen the likes of Eddie Berglund benching 200 kgs at 66 where he barely presses it.Is this right?

    plagiarised from a reddit thread and the overwhelming majority thinks people like me should stfu and accept.if i cant beat i should sumo myself.now 2 sumo pullers are in my top 5 of powerlifters ive met so im not too fussed but interested in your thoughts.

    I don't like sumo and other styles, but get over it.
    I can't wait for Kevin Aitken to join World Powerlifting.

    i think its harder to master,you have to be a real technician to get good at it.my dislike is rooted in jealousy to be honest with you.id like to see how much these sumo ninjas could pull conventional.

    PL's do anything to minimize their ROM.
    Kinda looks silly really, but if it's legal then why not?

    It's an interesting thing to ponder.

    Personally I cringe at strongman lifts being called deadlifts / squats etc, when they are not the same movement as the powerlifts. Same as using monolifts and deadlift bars etc. Not to say that the people that use them aren't strong. The same could possibly be said about some of the benching that gets passed and extremely limited ROM sumo deadlifts. On the other hand, if a person has certain leverages due to genetics, should they not be allowed to exploit them?

    Minimising ROM is what it's about, there's nothing technical about it sumo or conventional, it's about as basic as it gets.

    I guess it depends on the how legitimate fellow competitors find it (since powerlifting is barely a spectator sport).

    both Chris and Ashe have 200+ deadlifts in competition so are qualified to comment.Shrekky trains with a trap bar and ok numbers.wats your best deadlift?let me help you with my interpretation of what you call "easy"

    to pull a max deadlift you need

    .1.mongrel.lots of it.the ability to deliver and withstand force
    .2.the recovery of a racehorse.deadlifts fuck me big time.
    .3.a clever training methodology.remember you are training 2 other lifts as well.
    .4.the ability to see where your weakpoints are throughout the lift and pick the right accessories to strengthen it.
