Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

Sumo grip deadlifts are excellent for building strength and explosiveness with particular emphasis on the posterior chain.

Technique Tips

The safety and technique principles of sumo grip deadlifting are the same as the regular barbell deadlift except your hands are placed in position between your legs at the start instead of outside the knees. This allows the lifter to start in a more upright position which is easier on the lower back, but the wide stance also involves extra recruitment of the hips and groin.
