Hey folks, mind giving me feedback on anything I'm doing wrong in the video?

1080p HD available on my youtube. Shot with my new Galaxy Nexus Android phone.

I weighed 160 lbs this am.

I have the plates about an inch off the ground to make putting the plates on not such a pita.

I'm using straps as I have tendonitis in my right forearm. (forgot my arm band at home, notice the fancy paper towel/duct tape temp one :D )

You had your butt down in the right position and then raised it just before your pull. Don'tdothat.

If your gym objects to your doing DLs on their pretty floors then bring in a couple of pieces of carpet to put underneath the plates.

Repped for doing rack deads from the lowest position I've ever seen. :D

nice lift man!

the leading with your butt was the only thing I really saw.
but hey that is 2.3 times your body weight and you pulled it easy.

is it good form to have you butt down lower than parallel on the deadlift? or is that considered more of a squat movement? I'm questioning my own form.
Props to the OP, i'm 5lbs heavier and only doing 250. Now i have goal to shoot for :)

Normally for me I have my hips down more to get more leg drive to start the lift but he's not pulling it from the ground so IMO it looks pretty good.

Good lift OP!

More of a SLDL than a deadlift, no leg drive, you need to drop your ass down and then drop back like if you were falling backwards. .

On a good note you made that look easy so if you get the form down pat (more explosive power from the legs) you can easily do way more than that.

Thanks! It just takes time. I'm aiming at 4 plates before summer. 385 is my max right now.

Thanks for the vids, I've given out too many reps in the last 24 hours, will hit you up tomorrow.

The setup was due to a hamstring weakness, not a form error. You just have hamstrings that are too weak to allow that initial quad drive.

Why are you doing a rack pull from 1 inch above the ground though? That 1 inch could very well be adding 40 lbs to your deadlift.

Thanks for the advice, John, will give it a go on Wednesday!

It is just easier to get the plates on, will put it back on the ground Wednesday. Thanks!

Are those rubber coated plates? The ones at my gym are and I just put a 25lb. plate under the 45's to jack it up and add another 45. I also just unrack it and set it down with 315 anyway.


As far as the lift, get closer to it and squat into it. It's a good lift for your weight but could be more with the right form.
