Wondering how to properly do a sumo deadlift?
In this video, I explain how to do a sumo deadlift.
A few weeks ago, I went over the conventional deadlift set-up. Today, I am teaching you another Booty Lab favorite: the Sumo Deadlift. If you haven’t performed this strength movement before, make sure you master form first before adding load or weight.
The deadlift is a difficult strength lift that takes time and lots of practice. Even Pro’s start to break form under heavy loads, so take your time!

How to do a Proper Sumo Deadlift
Walk up to the bar and place your hands on the bar. For a sumo deadlift, you want your hands closer together than with a conventional deadlift. Squeeze your shoulders back and down. Then lift the bar off the rack.
Position your feet either at a moderate distance apart or wide. Perform the movement by hinging at the hips, keeping your weight on your heels. Guide the bar down your legs to the floor, while keeping your head in a neutral position.
Press back up, pushing through your heels, and squeeze your glutes. Make sure you’re not over pulling at the top.
Repeat for 1 rep.
