Never tried it brother! But I heard you could pull a lot of weight with it. Do you think its possible to pull more than traditional style?

i alternate between the both...for months i'll do one way, then switch...recently i've been pulling traditional...but with sumo i feel it allows me to put far less stress on my back...as it forces me to focus on using my hips more...allows me to stay more upright...i'd give it a shot...at first your strength will probably dip, but i think it'll really help boost your deadlift even more...give it a shot, it might be golden for you

Thanks man! I'm definately gonna give it a try! At the end of the summer I need to pick 500 off the ground. I feel as if my very existence depends on it.

That's all you need, man. It looks too clean though...gotta dirty it up a bit!

ha ha man! The worst part though is that its like 100 degrees. Arghhh.

So about 2 hours after my workout, I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes.

PM workout

15 minutes of occluded cardio

5 sets of 20 Vups with 30 seconds rest with a medicine ball

5 sets of 20 decline crunches with 30 seconds rest

10 sets of reverse barbell curls with 60 pounds, 30-60 seconds rest, 10 reps each set

4 sets standing calf raises with 200 pounds (bout 20 reps a set)

4 sets reverse calf raises ss with seated calf raises with 2 plates

10 minutes more of occluded cardio

If I were to die today I would want this song to play at my funeral

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WdYt9VkVek

Today was chest hypertrophy. I felt a bit fatigued from deadlifts yesterday and my upper back and traps are real sore. But here we go anyway!

Flat Bench

135 X 10, 185 X 10, 225 X 12, 240 X 10, 255 X 10, stripped immediately and did 135 by 15, after that my triceps were engorged in blood

Incline

135 X 10, 165 X 12, 175 X 10, 185 X 10

Bodyweight Dips 25 reps X 2 sets

In and out baby!

Right now Each meal is generally either 3/4s cup of oatmeal and 26 grams of whey, or oatmeal and EAAs or just the BCAAs about 6 times a day. Its approximately 260 grams of carbs, 160-180 grams of protein, and a bit low on the fat end. I also have fish oil, and cla with about 3 of my meals. Im taking in 3 grams a day of HMB as well, and about 15-20 grams of glutamine, cause without it my immune function is no where near as strong.

As long as I stick with this, it should lean me up quite substantially before I have to do anything more drastic
