Currently I am doing sumo deadlifts & conventional deadlifts but using conventional on my performance care day with high volume (for capacity + grip work).
This workout has the sumo deadlift as the “main lift.” So it is the focus of the workout and will be the first big lift performed. It’s a large, compound barbell movement. And the accessory work is designed to supplement the muscle groups and patterns relative to the sumo deadlift. Let’s get it.
🔸hip airplanes (done with assistance) – keep knee between big and pinky toe.
🔸single leg bridge
🔸adductor rockback (keep pelvis stable, not tucking into posterior tilt at end range)These open hips in preparation for sumos – abduction, external rotation and extension
🔹Sumo deadlift (slower down than up)
🔻BB RDL(This was far spicier for my upper and mid back than I anticipated – Working in ABduction + full posterior chain with the RDL).
🔺SL hip thrust – foot elevated because bench is too high when foot is on floor.(glute gains…)
No conditioning or cardio because I want to function after my lifts. Sets and reps 3-4×8 for most everything or 2RIR (reps in reserve), slower down than up tempo, and rest 30-90 sec between sets depending on the load.
