It’s NOT cheating!

I realized I need to work on my mental atate of mind. Getting discouraged after missing a lift and not wanting to take advantage of assistance (i.e wrist wraps, lifting belts, different stances) is one problem I am trying to deal with. Deadlifting today in sumo stance allowed me to boost my PR up 5 lbs, but I felt like I was cheating myself. It is not cheating, it’s taking advantgae of a shortened range of motion. Hell yeah it’s still hard! But if you can harness the muscle groups that are the primary movers AND only have to liuft the weight 3/4 of the way you normally do, DO IT!
