Deadlift Stance Calculator

The Deadlift is one of the best compound exercises for building overall strength and general fitness. However, many of us are unsure whether a Conventional Deadlift stance or a Sumo Deadlift stance is the best option for our leverages and proportions.

This calculator is designed to take some of the guesswork out of it by allowing you to input your arm length, torso length and overall height to determine your ideal Deadlift stance based on these proportions.

The calculator is based on the findings of Dr Michael Hales and simplifies the process, allowing you to spend more time training! Simply follow the instructions and let the calculator do the rest!
