Not necessarily true. Everyone's different depending upon their levers. A lot has to do with torso to arm length.

I know for me, up until recently I honestly believed that my conventional was a good 70 to 80 pounds more than my sumo. However, I could take a serious weight and bang out 10 sumo, but barely get 6 to 8 conventional.

In essence, we're all different.

All the best,
