Comments:

* I failed on the 375 lbs deadlift. I was able to break the weight free from the ground a few inches. Since this is the first time I am doing sumo deadlifts I am impressed that I can already use the same weight I handle in the conventional deadlift. I also feel less stress in the lower back as I do not have to round my back as much. I have a long torso and short arms so I think the sumo style might actually help me lift heavier in the deadlift as an end result.
