    Deadlift form

    hey y'all, whatsup. Haven't had anyone look at my deadlift form in quite a while so i figured I"d post it up as I have a max attempt planned for next week.

    I'm planning on hitting 445 which will be my first 2.5x BW deadlift so I"m exciting to go after that. And any little form tweaks that might help me get that would be awesome haha.




    "Thanks ahead of time y'all.

    I spied a little lumbar flexion as your form broke down by the end of the second set. Aside from that and jerking the bar off the floor they looked pretty good. 2.5x bodyweight is pretty impressive.

    This. Your back looks like it rounded slightly, but great lift and good luck on 2.5x bodyweight

    Awesome, thanks a bunch for the responses y'all! I worked up to 405x1 today trying to keep that jerking in mind specifically. (405 was my old PR, and I wanted to hit it and see how it felt before jumping up to 445 next week).

    Anything else y'all can see other than that back rounding/jerking? And how bad would y'all say the back rounding was? Is it worth to drop the weight a bit to try and keep that from happening? Or just keep trying to progress while keeping that in mind to try and keep it tighter.

    I thought your arms were fairly well locked out IMO but good to note this anyway.

    My advice would be get a little lower on that first rep, as in bring your ar$e down a bit more and try to take the slack off the bar before you lift which will limit the amount of 'jerking'.

    Your legs straightened a bit too quickly so you lost some leg drive and that may have caused your back rounding.

    Good luck with goals bro. Hit my 2.5 x deadlift recently aiming for 3x

    Also, have you experimented with keeping your head in a neutral position, more forward(looking more down).
    Doesn't work for everyone, just a thought.
