How to Do

How to Do Barbell Deadlift Sumo

The deadlift sumo with barbell should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop deadlift sumo.


Beginning Deadlift Sumo

1. Instead of facing straight ahead, stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart and your toes pointed out at a 45° angle.

2. To lower and grab the bar, bend at the hips. Choose your preferred grip for a deadlift, whether it's overhand or a mixed grip (one underhand and one overhand).


Deadlift Sumo Movement

1. Make sure your back is flat and don't round it at any point during the workout.

2. To elevate the bar to mid-thigh height, drive through your heels and stretch your knees and hips.

3. At the height of the exercise, pull your shoulders back, then slowly descend the bar to the ground, being cautious not to round your back.


Deadlift Sumo Benefits

The barbell deadlift sumo lets you lift a lot of weight while still developing power, huge legs, and jacked posterior chain (backside of the body) muscles.
