Sumo deadlifts with bar


Lock the sledge so that the bar is at mid-shin level.


Stand behind the bar and 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 unter tension.


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.


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




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.
