Wore a new metal deadlifter that’s one size smaller than I usually wear. Well it’s just too tight in the hips to get in good position, I was always hunched over at the start of the pull. The first pull I was really bad and just put it down, the second I was a bit better and was able to pull it through to lockout but I was still in a really bad starting position. I decided to give it a try conventional and it was just impossible to get down in, I basically was completely rounded in my upper back, got to my knees and realized this and just put it down.

  1. Looks like you had quite a struggle, Stinn. Do you think it’s just a case of it needing to be broken in or are you gonna have to get a new suit?
