RE: The "Do You Even Deadlift" Clinic
^ I'm always up for trying out new variations.

I had to take a little brake from regular deadlifting.
My lower back started to feel tired. When I was walking around my back started to bend inwards and my ass outwards. I had to stop and stretch every now and then.

Now I'm okay again but I guess this is due to inproper form. I don't now if this is a taller guy problem or if it's just me but when I deadlift it feels like I can't activate my hamstrings enough.
I think my back and upper body are doing most of the work.

Just by looking on people doing sumo deadlifts it seems like it's a more hamstring focused exercise.
However I would be interested to see a datasheet as I would like to try the sumo deadlift.

And I'm not taller than 6'3.
Would be nice to hear some input from guys at the same height.
