    Any advice….when doing barbell sumo squats, rep range 6-8, lifting a barbell up and onto my trap area to sumo squat is hard!! I had to have someone help put the 80# bar on me and then I was able to push out 12 squats. Should I use the Olympic bar and do them or stick with bb and do more reps? Hope that makes sense. I watched the video but it was just for db and bb link did not work.
    Thanks!

    Hi there,
    Have you tried the DB Sumo squats? But when talking about BB, I agree with Donna, Use the olympic bar and set up just like you were going to do regular squats…but your stance is just wider 🙂 Good luck
