    Deadlift form check




    Skip to 1:18 for start of lift

    I have a feeling I'm not lifting with correct form, even though it feels completely natural when I'm doing it. I notice that my back rounds a bit near the latter part of the lift. Is that much round ok, or not? Also I notice that my back is almost parallel to the ground when I start pulling. I tried starting in a position where my back is more angled at the start, but I can't lift nearly as much weight in this position, and it just doesn't feel natural. So I was wondering if this starting position is ok, or if I should lower the weight and have my back more angled at the start.

    practice getting your hips lower with a lighter weight, once you learn to utilise leg drive your weights will go up a lot more smoothly

    really try to drive through the floor with your heels - if you're wearing shoes which aren't flat soled then try going in socks

    Hips too high, chest too low. Hips and shoulders should rise at the same rate until the hips are completely extended. Probably lack of quad/glute/postural back strength as there is very little knee extension occuring and your hips are starting so high. Your triple extension is all phucked up, because you aren't really extending three joints.

    "Many basic or compound exercises (e.g. squat, bench press, etc.) have a bell shaped resistance curves or shift the resistance through multiple muscle groups throughout the exercise's range of motion allowing the muscles to momentarily relax between repetitions. This period of momentary relaxation between repetitions allows greater opportunity for momentary blood flow permitting the clearing of acid accumulation."

    from what i can see, pinch your shoulder blades back, with your chest higher which will also make your hips lower.

    Looks wrong.. bro I would probably decrease the weight if I was you.

    what everybody else said...

    something that really helped me was "pulling slack out of the bar", getting your body tight and pulling into the floor gives your hamstrings alot of tension and could straighten your back/lower your hips in the process.

    The things that I post are from my personal experience in and out of the gym. No letters behind my name, not a high IQ, just the will and desire to dedicate myself to this brilliant lifestyle. Take what you want and leave the rest.
