DO Axle strength

Jeff Parker

Recommended Posts

Since I've switched to sumo for DO axle my lifts have gone up, shorter and quicker ROM is one part, but I think a closer more comfortable hand position is the biggest reason. Now I'm starting to see my deadlift strength slowing down my axle pulls so I'm going to work my deadlift strength now, something I haven't really done since I tried my hand at strongman 12 years or so ago.  My question is do you think it would be more beneficial to deadlift with a regular bar sumo, conventional or both.  I can actually deadlift on a regular bar more conventional than I can sumo.  Thanks for any input.

I think it is wise to train both conventional and sumo. However, if your goal is to get as good at DO axle DL as you can, and your DL strength is the limiting factor, then you would be best served by training sumo. Just listen to your body, especially your hips, when you do a lot of sumo.
