I hurried 210-060 Dumps into CISSP pdf the local department store to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled2 210-060 Dumps to myself. I would be in here CISSP certifications forever and I 210-065 Exam Questions just had so much to do. Chirsmas Examdumpsview was beginning to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I could just sleep 210-060 Dumps through Chirsmas. CISSP training CISSP pdf But I hurried the best Examdumpsview CISSP exam dumps I could through all 210-065 Exam Questions the people to CISSP training CISSP certifications the toy CISSP certifications department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of Exampdfview 210-065 Exam Questions all these CISSP certifications Examdumpsview toys, and wondered if Exampdfview the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself CISSP certifications in CISSP exam dumps the doll CISSP certifications aisle5. Out of the 210-065 Exam Questions corner of my eye CISSP exam dumps I saw a little boy about 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair and he held her 210-065 Exam Questions so gently. I could Exampdfview not 210-065 Exam Questions seem to CISSP exam dumps Exampdfview CISSP training help Examdumpsview myself. Examdumpsview I just kept loking over at the little boy and wondered who the doll was for. Exampdfview I CISSP certifications CISSP exam dumps watched him CISSP pdf turn to a woman and he CISSP pdf called his aunt by name and said, “Are you sure I CISSP certifications don’t have enough money?” She 210-065 Exam Questions replied a bit impatiently, “You know that 210-065 Exam Questions Exampdfview you CISSP pdf don’t have enough money for 210-060 Dumps it.” The aunt told the little boy CISSP exam dumps not to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy continued to hold the doll. After 210-060 Dumps a bit I asked the boy who the doll was for. CISSP pdf CISSP exam dumps He said, CISSP pdf “It is the doll my sister 210-060 Dumps wanted so badly for Chirsmas. 210-060 Dumps She just knew that Santa would bring it. “I told him that maybe Santa was going CISSP training to bring it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go CISSP certifications where my sister is…. I have Exampdfview to give the doll 210-065 Exam Questions to CISSP exam dumps my Mama to 210-060 Dumps CISSP training take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me with Examdumpsview the saddest eyes and CISSP pdf said, “She was Exampdfview gone to CISSP exam dumps be with Jesus.

My Daddy 210-065 Exam Questions CISSP pdf says that Mamma is going to have to go be with her.” My Examdumpsview 210-065 Exam Questions heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked 210-060 Dumps CISSP training at me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her to wait till 210-060 Dumps I CISSP pdf got back from Exampdfview the store.” Then he asked me CISSP certifications if CISSP certifications 210-060 Dumps i wanted to see his picture. I 210-060 Dumps told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the 210-060 Dumps CISSP training front of the store. He 210-065 Exam Questions said, “I want my Mama to take this with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my CISSP training Mama so very much and I CISSP training wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she will need to be with my sister.” I saw that the little boy had lowered his head and Exampdfview had grown so qiuet. While he was not looking I Examdumpsview 210-060 Dumps reached into my purse 210-060 Dumps and pilled out a handful Examdumpsview of bills.

She loves white rose so much. “In a few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled my cart Exampdfview away. I CISSP pdf could not keep from 210-065 Exam Questions thinking about the little boy as I finished my shoppong in a ttally different CISSP pdf spirit than when I had started. And I kept CISSP exam dumps remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper CISSP certifications several days earlier about a drunk driver Exampdfview hitting CISSP training a car and killing7 Examdumpsview CISSP pdf a little girl and the Mother was in serious condition. The family was deciding on whether to remove the Exampdfview life support. Now surely Examdumpsview this little boy did not belong with that story.Two days CISSP pdf later I Exampdfview read in the paper where the family had disconnected the CISSP exam dumps life support and the young woman had died.

I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had CISSP training for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

Sumo Deadlifts:

CG Sumo Dead 1

CG Sumo Dead 2

 

We all know the deadlift is the ultimate test in strength… Only the “Bros” will ask what you bench first to see how strong you are. Anyone with any knowledge or true interest in strength training will ask what you’re deadlifting first and go on to judge you from there ;o)

***Boring story alert***

I still remember my first encounter with deadlifting, a good friend of mine and former gym partner arrogantly said he was stronger than me because he could deadlift more. I found that, as an early twenty something, a massive bruise to the ego and I made it a mission to learn the movement, nail it and beat that guy’s PB within 8 weeks (I did it within 4, FYI (show off)).

The deadlift helps with all areas of your gym game; upper and lower body and building overall strength; hamstrings, glutes, quads, back, grip, traps etc… what can’t it do?!?!?

Anyway, here I want to give my two penneth on the lesser known variation of the deadlift, the aptly named Sumo Deadlift. And quite frankly, for various reasons (we will go into below), my favourite…

So, what’s the difference between the standard deadlift and the sumo deadlift? Mainly, the predominant muscles you’ll use in the lift, the look, distance the weight travels and what you biomechanically are better suited to. Research shows that the sumo lift activates:

  • More quad use
  • More inner hamstring use
  • More traps use

Than the standard form of deadlifting…

 

Like I said, dependencies around your biomechanics will probably determine what you prefer and what you are strongest at. But, really, you should be using both styles. Here though, we wanted to talk through the sumo style as it’s probably the most unknown bigger core lift amongst novice and intermediate trainers/lifters.

Now, I pretty much exclusively do any heavy deadlift via sumo style as (like I said) I find my biomechanics are better suited for this especially when going (what I would call) really heavy. And, I know sumo deads aren’t meant to be as good for your glutes as standard deadlifts, but, due to flexibility issues with my hips and very tight hamstrings, I can actually get better glute activation with the sumo dead, which has also really helped me with avoiding strains and pulls through heavy standard form deadlifting.

How to Sumo Deadlift:

Stand over loaded barbell with feet around double the width of standard deadlift (I also like to have my feet facing at around the 11 o’clock position (left) and 1 o’clock position (right) this seems to help my glutes fire further and take more of the movement as well as helping with my (already poor) hip flexibility. How far you spread your legs though predominantly comes down to comfort, but double the distance of a standard stance is a good indication and starting point.  Do try a few positions with a lighter weight until you find the most comfortable one for you.

Squat down and grab the bar with around a shoulder widths grip (which should be inside your knees, ideally) and here you can either grip with one over hand and one underhand grip (staggered) or both overhand (my preference is overhand, not staggered, but, each to their own). Your quads want to be parallel with the floor at the starting point, bending forward from the hips, with your body bent forward slightly over the weight/bar.

The movement allows you to keep you back more upright through the lift compared to standard deadlifts. Push through your heels when you start to get tension for the lift. Extending at the knees first, then the hips, driving the movement up until you are in the standing position. Pushing the weight through your heels will activate the glutes more than usual I found, really squeezing them at the top. Hold the position and then lower the weight gradually back down, concentrating on the movement in reverse order, keeping the bar in constant contact with your legs. So, hip movement first, then knees etc…

 

Things to remember with this lift:

  • Keep bar in constant contact with your legs
  • “Push the ground down” through your heels first to engage lift
  • Extend at knees and pivot hips correctly
  • Hold movement at the top
  • Can use chalk or straps (many will argue with this but I like wrist straps as this helps me concentrate on the movement better, I do try to limit the weight I intro them though)

My preference is to do sumo deadlifts on leg day as they are the predominant muscle group in use. A lot of people prefer to incorporate deads on back day, as those are also major muscles used in the movement and can take away from your strength when you squat. How you manage this is truly what you are more comfortable with. I prefer leg day as I have two per week (one quad concentrated, and one hamstrings/glutes – which, is where I would fit this puppy in!). If you do want to put sumo deads in leg day though and you only do one a week, try alternating the order you do the main exercises. One week squat first, one week dead etc.

Now, be sure to use both forms of the deadlift. I know I’m guilty of concentrating more on the sumo style as I’m stronger through the movement and can lift heavier weight so it becomes more addictive. But, give this one a go, you won’t regret it.
