Consider the Press, Deadlift, Farmer's Walk, Death Medley, and Atlas Stones. I'll pinpoint the common weakness in each event and provide an exercise (a solution) for you to fix the weak point. No excuses!
I decided to go back to powerlifting and tested out where my sumo deadlift was. The first time I went back to it, the weights were flying off the floor, and I went on to pull 800 pounds at the meet — a 100-pound increase in my deadlift. If I can do it, so can you. Read on to learn how I did it.
As I got stronger with pulling conventional, a funny thing happened. My weak point went from being off the floor (where it was when pulling sumo) to just below the knee. I had to go back to the drawing board and figure out what exercises would get me stronger.
