    Squat and Deadlift Form-Check

    I know this doesn't really go here, but most of the people who's opinions I respect are here. Title says it all. First 2 videos are squat, next 2 deadlifts. I'm kind of embarressed but whatever. Thanks guys.

    I only squated 185 today because I'm still trying to get over a quad strain. It felt very easy.

    Squat - 185




    Squat - 185




    I'm still having a real problem with the deadlift. I don't know if my back is flat enough or what. I've been watching the SS dvd and trying to do what he says but my back still seems rounded to me. Please look at and tell me what you think.

    Deadlift - 135




    Deadlift - 205

    DL: They look like similar form probs I was having last Spring. Most of the issue was lack of (lack of) upper back/trap strength and tightness. Are you doing any shrug work? Pendlay work? The other part is heel drive/glute tightness. This was more of a conceptual (and difficult) fix: DL is not just "standing up/picking up" the weight. Rather, visualize digging your heels in the ground, hard(!) -- all the way to China -- and the downward force helps your hips operate as the hinge to get the weight up.

    look forward when you deadlift with your chest puffed out more and flex your glutes upon extension.

    Edit: On those deadlifts you really need to get that chest out.

    On squats id say try to spend a little less time blowing energy with weight on your shoulders messing around, have your form figured out before your throw the weight on

    squats looked descent, DL could use a lower butt start, more heel drive and wait a bit on back lock out. I'd go with Joes2Doves suggestion bro!!

    Squat looks good, hip drive is there, but it looks like you're doing a high bar squat. Can't tell 100%, but based on the bar, your hand position, and your relatively steep back angle it was high. This is not involving your posterior chain as much and isn't letting you squat as much weight as you can.

    With deadlift, look forward, never sideways or up or anything else. Look at a point on the floor 12-15 feet in front of you. If the floor isn't that long just guess. And your back is slightly rounded, remember to arch it beforehand. When you first pull, everything should be tight. Focus on keeping the same back angle until the bar approaches or meets your knees, then focus on pushing your hips forward. Don't focus on straightening your back, don't focus on standing up. Focus on driving your hips forward, pulling with the glutes and hamstrings, not your lower back. That cue alone has helped me with deadlift more than anything. Like others mentioned, focusing on your heel drive should help this. During your pull, your hips rise slightly before your shoulders, and then you raise your shoulders. This is definitely not what should happen. Best of luck, man.

    It's hard to tell by video but you don't seem to have a tight set up with your squat. All that fidgeting with your feet needs to stop as well. I would recommend squatting in some Chuck's, oly shoes or bare footed.

    Here is a great squat set up tutorial




    Here's a good deadlifting video
