    Sumo deadlift lower vs thoracic back rounding

    Hey guys, quick question.

    Here is a video of my sumo deadlift: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKlZ...ature=youtu.be.

    It looks like I'm getting over extension in the thoracic region, but my lower back is still slightly rounded in the pull. Is this an issue/is there any advice you guys have for pulling into more extension for my lower back without becoming too extended in my thoracic region?

    Thanks!

    Maybe I cannot see well on my phone but your lower back does not appear rounded to me.

    I don't really see any problems with your pull. I really don't see the round lower back, and your mid back has an exaggerated arch, but that is just how you are built. Sumo is similar to a squat, I imagine your spine looks the same when squatting.

    I agree with the the above. I don't see any lower back rounding and don't think the arch in the upper back is a problem. Are you experiencing lower back pain while you do this?

    I may be over analyzing, but isnt the red line rounded and should be more like the yellow line? (Kind of similar to the second picture). Is that just the way my glutes attach to my lower back then and there's nothing you can do about it? I am currently recovering from a lower back injury, so these specific pulls I attached are very light and don't cause any discomfort, but I'm nitpicking my form to hopefully not have that happen again.

    Looks to me like the same thing is happening in my squat? (Also attached).

    I think you're mistaking your ass for your lower back in the first two. Our bodies aren't built at right angles. The squat looks like you have some rounding in the lower back though so you may want to fix your form there.

    I think your squat may have a buttwink at the bottom leading to a slight rounding of the lower back, but need an action shot to be sure.

    Here's the squat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Sck...ature=youtu.be. Similar to the deadlift I've dialed weight way back to work on form and heal up - my biggest issue before was falling forward at the bottom of the hole. These sets look a lot better to me, but I'm still working on it. Does the butt wink look like an issue? And if so, how do you go about fixing that?

    I am going to guess that your knees are caving in instead of pushing out. I would point your feet a little more forward and make sure your knees drive out, this should stop you from falling forward. I am not sure if there is a buttwink or not, it may just look like it because you are falling forward.

    That butt wink seems pretty minor to me at least and if it's not causing you any pain you may not need to change it, although it may become more problematic as you increase the weight. Some ways to try to fix that would be to play with the width of your stance, not go so deep, or work on your flexiblity (hips, etc.).
