    You could always give it a whirl and post up your vids here to be critiqued.

    I'll be playing with them off and on to see if it is a better fit for me.
    If not, at least i tried.

    Sumo's are a good assistance lift to conventional pulls even if you stick with conventional.

    Yes, the doctor said this isn't what its usually prescribed for/intended for but he's had much luck with it.
