Thank you for that syaigh. As always it is good to know I am not alone in my experiences.syaigh wrote:When I switched to a modified sumo pull, I traded in knee and low back pain for lat and glute engagement. Which was awesome, but at first would routinely result in my lats seizing up suddenly and violently from turning and reaching for stuff, so much so that it would make it hard to breathe. :) But, its awesome. Feel so much stronger with the lats working for me instead of my back extensors.

DL bars vs Non DL bars.
Basically, if you pull a max on a DL specific bar, then pull it on a regular gym bar, you can consider that a PR...the equipment is different. HOWEVER, there are certain types of lifters that get a LOT more out of the whippy DL bars than others. Being a regular type guy with a big ass dick, you probably have a 10-20 # difference at most. Phil S, however, may have a 30-50 lb difference, as might others. If you trained a lot with a the DL bar, you would probably increase that difference. Or if you are have a super strong surge start, the DL bar can by good to you.
