Longing For Lunges

Big thanks to everyone who came out Tuesday evening for the Freestyle Connection Seminar

“The 1¼ squat is used to strengthen the bottommost part of the squat to aid in proper recovery position in the squat, clean or snatch. It can also be used specifically to train VMO and glute activation and strength.” – Greg Everett

SUMO!

Clara S

Since we are all built differently sometimes a particular approach or method tends to 1.) “fit” us with better leverage, or 2.) challenge us out of our normal execution. The sumo deadlift is no different.

For those with longer limbs the conventional deadlift seems to be good for most. Those with shorter limb lengths might find that the sumo deadlift is actually faster for lockout.
