    Default Deadlift form check (vid)

    Can I get some critiques of my deadlift form. My deadlifts are really lagging and just wondering if form is an issue, or if there are any safety issues. Thanks

    sorry about the ****ty phone camera dimensions.

    I think your form looks really good. I would possibly try a new rotation with the dead lifts in it

    Define "really lagging". What your squat/bench/press numbers?

    Before each rep, you're getting yourself into a decent starting position. However, it looks like the moment you start pulling, your lower back rounds slightly. Often this is caused by tight hip flexors / hamstrings and inactive glutes. I've found that, for me, "waking up" the glutes with some lightly weighted glute bridges or band pull-throughs as part of my warm-up help; they also warm-up the spinal erectors, which is good.

    Also, personally, I would have kicked that girl in the teeth for walking across the platform in front of me while I was deadlifting. And she did it twice! I mean, that's Gym Etiquette 101.

    are you getting your weight back enough?
    hard to tell but maybe your shoulders are too far forward (in front of the bar).

    ha ha. she seriously was just hanging out on the platform that you were deadlifting on.
    i'm not sure i would kick a woman in the teeth for that though.

    That's sexist.



    I was only exaggerating. She definitely would have gotten an earful, that's for sure.

    Drop your hips more. Your back is too horizontal. Try getting your hips an inch or two lower. No more than that. Right now you're using a lot of back in comparison to your legs. I have the same problem and you're built similar to me. Our body proportions lend itself to a bit lower hip than others.

    Rule of thumb is you want the angle your thighs make with the ground to be the same as your torso. It looks like your thighs are at a 60 to 70 degree angle and your back is at a 20 to 30 degree angle. You want them both to be around 45 degrees or as close as you can get. Watch Got2squat's PR attempts at deadlift. He's got it pretty close. His back angle is around 40 degrees while thighs are around 50 degrees getting pretty close to a 45/45 split.

    It's going to feel weird at first but if you want to lift more weight you need to get the strong muscles of your legs more involved vs just "backing" it up.

    Ok, thanks for the tip. It's lagging b/c I can squat 140kg for 5 to depth, and this deadlift is only 137.5 and you can see how hard it was for me.
    And lol, I honestly didn't even notice her even in the video until you pointed it out. To busy focusing on the DLs

    looks fine to me.

    personally what i do that helps me increase my weight is just concentrating on driving with my legs more, just like your coming out of the hole during a squat.
