When i decided to change over to sumo instead of conventional when i was powerlifting, it was because it felt more natural for me to do so. Nowadays, i do both still but more for musclebuilding.
I am going to need the help from experienced sumo dl' ers like you and btb so all the help would be appreciated, my buddy showed me about pushing the knees out today but with him not overlooking me i will forget this so i will perfect it on low weight before going heavy with 225 like i did today with an experienced lifter watching
badass[bad-ass] adj. - the epitome of the American male. He radiates confidence in everything he does, whether itís lifting weights, ordering a drink, playing a sport, buying a car, or dealing with women. Heís slow to anger, yet brutally efficient when fighting back.
The badass carves his own path. He wears, drives, drinks, watches, and listens to what he chooses, when he chooses, where he chooses. Badass style is understated but instantly recognizable.
