With short limbs and long torso, you def are gonna have a harder time to get into a good pulling position with a conventional deadlift. In comparison to a person with longer limbs and shorter torso, your back angle will be more vertical which will put more stress on the back and your lower back will easier round. So it could def be the cause for your back problems and switching to sumo could be a good idea.

For the weight, it totally depends on how many reps and sets you are doing, but if I'm going to assume you mean 1 to 3 sets of 5 reps that should be somewhere around the 80-85% range.

Record yourself working up to a heavy sumo dl with perfect form. Then start your working sets of 5 reps with 80% of that. If form breaks down, start even lower. Better to start too easy with a new movement.

If you want to put minimal stress on your lower back, your sumo stance should be max width and torso as upright as you can with hips pretty low. Look at Alexander Kangs sumo guide on youtube for an example.

Don't underestimate, NYC is significantly more expensive than Boston.. if you aren't making 100k+ you will basically be a poor person.  Obviously Boston isn't cheap but you will spend a lot more money in New York.

Found this on a lifting forum:

Interview about protein intake, protein timing and muscle building with Philip Stuart (apparently one of the best in the world in that field):

http://www.leanbodiesconsulting.com/...uart-phillips/

"Quote:
Bottom line, if you’re taking in adequate protein then BCAA are a complete waste of money IMO!

Quote:
From an optimal standpoint, however, there are benefits of ingesting protein intakes as high as 1.6-1.8 g/kg/d [0.73-0.81 g/lb/d], which we further breakdown to ~4 meals of 0.4-0.45 g/kg/meal, in a day.

In an energy deficit higher intakes might be of benefit to protect muscle mass, but the exact number for what to eat when in energy deficit is a little hard to pin down, but I’d have no issues with 2-2.5 g/kg/d [0.91-1.14 g/lb/d] or 0.5k/kg/meal 4 times daily.

Quote:
While our group has continually been tagged with the 20g/meal tag (which equates to ~0.25g/kg), you can certainly eat (and digest) a lot more protein. My point would be that your body can’t use the amino acids from protein when ingested beyond the immediate roles of those amino acids to build new proteins – in muscle and elsewhere – make neurotransmitters, or use the amino acids in intermediary metabolism.

After that the nitrogen (N) is fundamentally toxic in a mammalian system and you strip the amino acid off the nitrogen and eventually it ends up in urea and some ammonia. So beyond what your body can immediately (or within a few short hours) use metabolically, large ’doses’ of protein simply aren’t metabolically useful."

TLDR:
- amino acid builds builds muscle, not calories
- the body can digest more than 30g of protein at a time, but it can't make use of the amino acids beyond those in a meal with 30-40g protein
- he recommends 0.5g of protein/kg/meal 4 times daily from sources with complete amino acid profile (pretty much pure protein sources like meat, dairy, powders, etc). I read this as your total protein intake can be higher but thise 0.5g/kg bw should be from gypical protein sources, not including trace protein from carbs or fat sources
