wow great lifting brian you put some serious size on off season too! I haven't seen sumo dead lifting before
but Im now gonna have to give it a try, it looks like it puts slightly more emphasis on glutes, quads & hams compaired to traditional deads?

congratulations on defending your title last year, your physique is one i aspire too, i only hope to one day grace the same stage with you

Thanks for all the kind words fellas!  Yes, I do find these target the upper back just a bit more, but mostly recruit more hams & quads than traditional deads.  Honestly I was a little perturbed that my lower back didn't get very sore from these, so I'll probably go back to traditional deads next time. 

And yes, I do have to watch out for the toes!  Although I am very happy with these:  http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/index.htm; when I was deadlifting in Chuck Taylors I found my feet slipping to the side on these sumos.  I use the Vibrams on all my squat and deadlift days, and will probably never go back to "normal" shoes.

Hi everyone,

Thought I would share this video of me doing some sumo deadlifts in the depths of my off-season.  Here is 495 lbs (225 kgs) x 12 reps.  I am much better at sumo than traditional deads, not sure why exactly.  I was pretty happy with this lift as it is a personal record for me, and I think I'm making some good gains this off-season.  Cheers!

Hi Brian

Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge with us.
After looking at your deadlift video, I wanted to ask you if you put a lot of emphasis on the negative part of the deadlift? Do you try to keep it as controlled and slow as possible?
Thanks for your reply

WOW - it is worth checking out your 1 week out video as well - that is an awesome spectacle and no way looks like a lightweight.
