Sumo deadlift is a variation of the conventional deadlift, but here you have a wider stance between your feet and the grip is between the knees. The lifting distance is shorter than the classic deadlift and your upper body is more upraised. It´s an effective full-body strength exercise that activates glutes, the lumbar spine, hamstrings, quats, adductors, trapezius, lats and forearms.
