Re: Deadlift & Squat Clean Check

Your deadlift looks like a good Romanian Deadlift. But if you want to do a regular deadlift your hips need to be down and back more so you can get some leg drive (not just low back/hamstring action). Also, get your head more neutral.

I'm bad at cleans, but to my weak eye, you look like you are being pulled a little forward.

Re: Deadlift & Squat Clean Check

On the clean that's a really bad early arm bend. It's more like a high-pull/reverse curl into a front squat.

Thanks for the feedback. I looked up rippetoe deadlift set up after reading on another thread. This i think has helped me into a better position....no video sorry....however what i have found is my lower back is aching a little. is that an indicator of position being incorrect or just that I have a weak back and heavy lifting is going to ache?

thanks

Re: Deadlift & Squat Clean Check

If you maintained good spinal position and have a little muscle soreness that is fine. If you were rounding and really straining through your back for the pull that would not be good.

Re: Deadlift & Squat Clean Check

Deadlift
*Set-up needs to be fixed
-Feet need to be in between hip-width and shoulder width.
-the bar needs to make contact w/ your shins and shins need to be vertical
-Like others have mentioned here, push that butt back and make sure the hips are positioned higher than the knees
-Keep the back and head in neutral position w/ the chest up (don't "round the back"
-Grip should be hands just outside the thighs

*execution needs to be polished
-You need to extend the legs while keeping weight on the heels
-Hips and shoulders should rise at the same time
-!!!Keep that bar close to the body (it should "brush" the front of your thighs on the way up)


SQ. Clean:
-there's a lot that needs to be fixed. I would seek out a CrossFit coach or a friend certified in olympic lifting for help on that one.

Best of luck to you.
