How to Do High Pull Sumo Deadlift
The high pull sumo deadlift 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 the high pull sumo deadlift.
Beginning High Pull Sumo Deadlift
Standing with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders is a good idea. To grab the barbell, hinge at your hips and bend your knees. Your arms should be between your thighs, and your grasp should be narrow.
High Pull Sumo Deadlift Movement
1. Keep your gaze forward while pulling in your belly button. Squeeze your back muscles and glutes as you stretch your legs and stand up. Keep in mind that this is a vertical pull, so keep the bar close to your body.
2. Maintain upward momentum by pulling the bar with your arms once it passes your hips. Allow your elbows to spread wide. Make sure your core is braced the entire time and don't lean back as you rise.
3. Don't try to hold it at the top. Lower the bar slowly and carefully; if you let it fall, you risk harm. The most important things to remember are to keep the bar close to your body and to keep your back straight on the way down.
