Sumo Deadlifts

I got some advice not too long ago from Ted Toalston. If I can bring up my sumo deadlift, it will help out my squat. I've always been a pretty decent conventional deadlifter and I've always been terrible at sumo. I believe my sumo PR is 600 and my conventional PR is 755 raw. My hips are a weak point, no doubt.

The next few weeks I'll spend primarily pulling sumo in order to build my hips up.

Sumo DL:
135x5
225x5
315x3 - I could already feel the fatigue and blood pumping in my hips/glutes, pathetic, I know.
365x2
405x2
455x1
495x1
545x1
585x1- conventional. I planned to pull sumo the whole time but my last one was pathetic, form really started to go and this was the last pull of the day, so I just made it look good.

Accessory Work.
Straight Leg Deadlift 225x10 reps x 3 sets
Ab Roller x10 x 3 sets
Shrugs 3 sets, 40,30, 20 reps

I have a lot of work to do on the sumo pulls. I'll spend at least the next few weeks working on them.
