    Cool Critique my Deadlift 375x5

    Looking for some feedback on my Deadlift form. This is the first time I've filmed myself doing this excersise.

    This was done after a heavy squat session and I thought this was 365 but I loaded 375 by accident because I'm not used to kg plates.

    It kind of seems that I tip forward right before the bar leaves the ground. Is this normal? Is it somehow sub optimal? I have a lot of trouble getting the bar off the ground and comparatively speaking, the lockout feels really easy.

    It also feels like my back is rounding which is why I didn't attempt the 5th rep in video 2 but looking at the video, my back seems rather straight. I have long arms for my height. Wingspan is +6 inches vs my height.

    I've seen some individuals give great advice in the O35 forum for Deadlift form checks. Hoping I can get some knowledgeable individuals to help me. Looking at the video, my form doesn't seem right.

    looks pretty good from what I can see

    only thing I can really say is keep the lats tight if you aren't already and you might be slightly locking out your knees before lockout

    I get what you're saying about your back rounding. In your case, it's something happening at your limits rather than bad technique. The extent that it's occurring isn't so much that it puts you at significant risk.
    I tell time. Time doesn't tell me.

    Looks good, OP. Maintain that same good form as you gradually, over time, add weight to the bar, and you're on your way.



    BTW, blowing off that 5th rep because you felt your form going South---rather than just trying to plow through it---is smart training, and something that will keep you progressing and getting bigger/stronger over the coming years with minimal risk of injury.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    Nothing good comes from negativity; where the mind goes, the body follows.

    This is incredibly flattering. Thanks for the compliment.

    To the others.. Thank you for the comments, I appreciate the feedback. To my understanding it looks reasonable.

    To those of you who have been pulling a long time... How do you decide on an optimal foot positon? I take a pretty narrow stance and I'm wondering if that might be the reason I have so much trouble getting the bar off the ground.

    Feet should be a bit less than shoulder-width apart so your arms can reach straight down to grip the bar.

    I have not been pulling a long time, but it's hard to go wrong doing that ^. The old 'foot placement as if you were going to do a standing vertical jump' works out about the same as that, for me.

    It's hard to tell from the video but I have my heels only about 6-8 inches from each other. Which is far narrower than I would be if I was going to jump high. Which makes me think this is probably sub optimal. I stand narrow because I need to point my toes out to feel strong. If I take a wider stance and point my toes out like I do then I'm going to be grabbing the bar probably at or outside shoulder width.

    The whole thing is frustrating to think about because experimenting with stance means I have to reduce the load and work my way up and then if I end up pulling slightly more with the wider stance is it because I got stronger overall or because the wider stance is better? Experiment almost feels like a waste of several training weeks.

    I understand different individuals will have different leveraged and be strong in different positions. I'm wondering how some of you great pullers found what's optimal for you?

    I have similar thought dilemmas on my other lifts. I'm pretty good at benching I'd say but I take a really narrow grip especially when you consider I have rather long arms for my height.
