I forgot I never updated this thread, fun memory issues thanks to my head! Anyhow thanks for everyone's help, things went pretty well. Here's my log entry...

Form broke down on max, no shock, but it felt way easier than when I pulled conventional, by a TON! Since Steve and Erin were the only ones to see my conventional 405 pull it's hard to say if it was better form or not, but it felt easier. Was going to pull another time for an all time PR, but I watched the vid of my last one and form was pretty aweful so just settled with what I accomplished and was happy. Unlike after conventional pulling, I don't even feel like I lifted today! I like me some SUMO'S!!!

405x 1 PR ...vid, form went to crap, but I lifted it and it was much easier than conventional. I have little doubt that I can make much better strides with sumo than conventional. Not giving up on conventional though!
