Gave myself an easy day after yesterday. Was feeling a little beat down, and I know that the rest of the month will be tough. I have been thinking about revisiting the conventional deadlift for a while now. I switched to sumo over 2 years ago, and could very easily pull over 500# that way. In any case, I haven't done any structured  heavier deadlifting for almost 2 years, and no conventional deadlifting since Feb. 2012. Last month I did a volume trapbar deadlift program, but that is pretty different. 

Going to start playing with adding these in just a few times a week. Going easy, easy on them, just to sort of get that groove back and train the movement. I pulled a few easy singles a few weeks back at 2X bodyweight and it felt good. I think your body changes from time to time and switching between sumo and conventional is very individual. I do have to say that doing lots of swings makes it feel like these really haven't gone away.
