SUMO DEADLIFT WITH BAR

Preparation

Fix the sledge so that the handle bar is approximately halfway up the shin.

Starting Position

Stand behind the handle bar (shin to bar about 20cm). Now go into the squat position with a wide stance. The shin is almost touching the bar. Grasp the bar with a narrow grip. During the entire exercise the back is slightly hollowed. The head forms an extension of the spine. Always keep the back straight with full tension (slight hollow back).

Execution

Keep the arms extended the whole time as you rise. Your legs and lower back muscles provide the force for the movement. In the end position, the shoulders are pulled back but not raised.

Hint

Only the legs and lower back do the work in this exercise.

Warning

The movement sequence is somewhat complex. It is best to learn the sequence first with little weight. It can help to film yourself doing it. If in doubt, consult a personal trainer with the video.
