Deadlift form check

I took two videos. In the first one I think I do pretty well, I just need to keep my chest up more on the way up, and push my hips back further on the way down so I don't have to make the bar go around my knees. Is my low back flexed enough or should I contract it harder?

The second one was definitely a strain for me, which is why my hips shoot up faster than my upper body. I do have some rounding, but is it that bad?

I know I have a box squat thread but I figured I'd need a separate one for the deadlift. I want to make sure my form is solid because I just resumed lower body lifting after 1.5yrs off due to patella tendonitis issues and definitely do not want to suffer it again.

Not too shabby.

Tuck your chin just a tad more.

Try your best to keep the bar path as straight as possible and when you lower the barbell get the butt back so you don't have to move the bar around your knees.


You seem maybe a tad loose, build some nice tension, take the slack out of the bar then drive up through the ground.

Good to know I'm on the right track. I'm hoping to nail down correct form so I don't have to deload and work from scratch like last time. Will do for all the points you mentioned. Thanks again for commenting on another one of my form check threads, I appreciate it
