Switching Deadlift Stance to improve lift?
I have a weak lockout (which, I believe, are due to weak hips) when I am pulling conventional. I have more power and strength pulling conventional so I don't see myself switch over to sumo for competition.
However, I have been toying around with the idea to work the sumo stance during my training while I am not peaking for a meet. For guys that compete, do you see any benefits in this? I was thinking this may help improve my lockout in the long run.
If not, what suggestions do you have to improve the lockout? Rack pulls, or something else?
