i've read that those with longer torsos should biomechanically be more efficient pulling sumo, but it's all about how you're built.

hmm, basically you sit down on a bench with either someone standing on your feet or underneath another bench, then lower yourself like you would a crunch, then explosively crunch up and twist at the end to bring your opposite elbow to the opposite knee. kinda tough to explain, i'll try to find a video.

edit: kinda like this, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwzxTrp2Stg, but on a flat bench, and more explosive. and if you want you can hold a db like a front squat.
