Sumo-Style Deadlift

A style of deadlift performed with the feet wider than shoulder-width apart and the arms closer together and in between the knees. As the lifter's torso descends, the knees travel outwards (and slightly forwards). Most lifters can lift more in the conventional deadlift style, but a few can lift more sumo-fashion, and this style also keeps the torso nearly upright through the movement, placing less stress on the lower back.
