First time pulling sumo, still trying to get the form down. Any advice would be great. I kept it light here because I have a very hard time using my hams when I deadlift. I always use way too much back.

your stance has to be much wider. That's a close stance sumo. That would be like competing in the bench press and using pointer on the smooth.

Just make sure you get a nice little arch in your lower back at the bottom and right before you start the movement arch your back even hard then start the pull. Make sure after a few inches off the ground you pull back not up.
