good pull Teekay
post #38972 of 57265
Lovin' the murica belt. Good pull. I dunno why I can't convince myself to try sumo. I just really love every aspect of conventional. Why did you guys (for those that did) end up switching?

---

Quick progress pics on my way out to cardio/stairs like a phag. Decided not to go all out dirty this time, but not exactly clean either. I make sure to hit my proteins and then have what I want without going crazy. I think it's working okay so far. Progress is obviously slower, but I do feel myself getting bigger up top while not losing too much in the legs. Got a nice layer of fat on me right now too. I should have measured, but I feel my chest and arms have gotten significantly bigger in the last 2 months or so. Arms probably due to me incorporating chinups and pullups in almost every on day.

It feels more natural for me and I feel like I'm able to maintain my form at higher efforts than with conventional.

edit: looking good brah. Might wanna bring up dem delts a bit but overall good progress.

You seem to pull sumo similar to me. As in not a proper sumo deadlift, basically just a wide stance conventional. No idea how you can miss a sumo pull that high up.

i do sumo for the same reason you do conventional - i love everything about it. it feels much more natural and i think it suits my strengths best.

with that kind of reasoning i should be blasting away at conventional to bring it to par but i just feel so much better doing sumo. looking good too brah.

Do any of you guys experience weird hip pain pulling sumo though? I love pulling sumo too but this shit fucked me up. Once I'm healed up I'll put up a vid.

What do you rec for delt development TK? I incorporated 5x10 45lb plate raises at the end of each workout very recently to burn myself out like you mentioned awhile back, but what else do you rec?

EDIT:

Thanks for the insight. I wanna give sumo a try in the very near future. Maybe if my conventional keeps stalling I'll give sumo some time and development. I assume the transition has a decent learning curve.

Exercises I currently love:

Push press
Face Pulls(charly showed me a diff way than what I had been doing)
Lateral raises w/ smith machine
Plate raises

edit: was doing facepulls like this:

Delts are arguably one of my best features, and I think lighter weight higher rep dumbbell presses really got them nice.
post #38980 of 57265
Aite gonna have to give both a try. Facepulls especially. I'm taking a "weight lifting" course in between my other courses and am just gonna do low weight volume stuff the whole time haha.

EDIT: Mark, I just saw your before and after pics again. You've come such a long way it's nuts. Like two different people. Probably already congratulated you, but man it amazes me every time I see it.

No not six months, should only take a few sessions. Everyone should know how to do both too, there's application to both highbar and lowbar. I lowbar but I make sure I can still highbar big weights.
post #38985 of 57265
Took about 6 months for me to get it to the point where it felt like a natural movement and that I felt comfortable pushing my PRs on it.

I also had pretty underdeveloped hamstrings, so it took a while for me to get them up to speed.
