Sumo Deadlifts: We all want a perfect stronger and stronger Leg. Well, most of us do. They look great in fitted with half pants, or tight pants, look even better out of them and help compliment a well-defined torso. Yes, some people will say exercising your Leg in isolation is stupid. We understand, but some days we just long for the pump. And you know what? There’s no shame in that.
Equipment Required: Barbell
- Stand facing the bar. Place your feet considerably wider than shoulder-width apart with your toes pointing outward, keeping them in line with your knees.
- Flex your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor.
- Take an overhand grip on the bar with your hands about shoulder-width apart, keeping your arms straight (use an over-under grip to lift heavier loads).
- Inhale, hold your breath, slightly arch your back, shoulders backward, contract your abdominals and straighten your legs, extending your torso to stand erect.
- Exhale as you complete the movement.

Smaller muscles help the larger muscles, stabilize joints, help rotate joints, and facilitate other fine-tuned movements.
Muscles of the lower leg move the lower leg at the knee joint and the foot at the ankle joint. There are three main muscle groups.
