    Form check - Deadlift

    Looking at the videos, on the descent the bar seems to be moving outward as it passes my knees, not sure if this is normal? Any input on how to correct this would be appreciated. These videos are from today's workout.

    Better than most I have seen, two good ques' to use to make sure you are driving up in control is

    1. Bring your shins to the bar, after setting up your stance and grip
    2. Pull your scapula together while holding the bar, this will remove and "slack" from the bar

    Props on the lift.

    Try focusing on moving your hips back first so you can keep your knees out of the way when you start to lower the bar, and then bend the knees once it gets lower. You might also have to play with your general setup depending on your body's dimensions.

    Can tweak your lower back moving it out front like that.

    Will comment in a sec, fixing your links...

    Well, the weight does move away from you on descent... my guess though is mostly because you are trying to control it on descent and your hips aren't back.
    I'd get a pad on either side and - you don't have to fully drop it - but let it go down much more quickly without trying to slow it down. You can let your hips go back farther but really just set that sucker down faster and I think it will smooth out. The lifts themselves look fine.
    Why NOT?

    Looks like you're sitting down with the weight instead of hinging back. Practice hip hinge with RDL.

    Narrow stance with toes straight forward like that can put your knees too far forward. A bit wider will open your hips more, and turn your legs and knees out, also can activate more glutes and adductors.

    Thanks for the fix and advice! I agree about the hips.

    You are moving the bar path away from your body because you are semi-squatting (bending the knees further) before the bar paths passes your knees. Could be because you have tight hamstrings, practice the descend with a lighter weight to break at the hips with the knees slightly bend and keep the bar closest to the thighs. My son was doing this alot and we fixed it and not only did it correct the bar path (when the bar moves away from your body the lift becomes more difficult) but it increased his lift as well.

    Awesome, I will definitely work on this! I'm know to tweak my lower back here and there and it makes sense why now, because i might be slightly be leaning over.
