Why do we Sumo Deadlift?

While both the sumo deadlift and conventional deadlift produce similar effects, there are some key differences between the sumo deadlift and conventional style.

One of the main reasons why we include in our strength work the sumo deadlift transfers loading to the glutes and quadriceps slightly more than during the conventional deadlift, which also decreases loading on the hamstrings and lower back (due to a more vertical back angle and greater knee flexion).
