Part 2
The second area of retraining I am going through is on my deadlift. We have decided to try Sumo deadlifting in place of the conventional style I have been using for the past 2 years. I did try sumo about 12 months ago and had reasonable success with it, but changed back as I struggled after about 105kgs. One year on with significant more power through my glute/hamstrings I am back at doing reps at 60kgs - 80kgs. So far it feels very comfortable and Rod had another coach look at my form and there were only 2 areas that needed adjustment (unlike my squat).
I was at the point that I actually hated deadlift training and this has given me a renewed interest, and hopefully will be a plateau buster for me.
