Re: Deadlift check

You're not setting your lower back before you pull and your butt is too high. These things go hand in hand because flexibility will prevent you from arching your back if your butt is too high.

Whats the dog's pr?

Dog isn't much of a lifter. More of a herder:

Ok I only wish mine could do that.

So, get the grip, set the back, engage the hammies, and lift? You're saying my butt is too high because my back isn't set, so my hamstrings are engaging later than they would if my back was more set?

Re: Deadlift check

Yes, set your back and lift.
I would say your butt is too high, thus you set-up with a slightly rounded back instead of a nice lumbar curve - may be a hamstring flexibility issue. I am working through a similar issue - bang out some very light (pvc or 45# barbell) weight good mornings right before you DL at a 44x1 count.

Re: Deadlift check

I thought my dog was the only one that looked concerned when I lifted.

Or maybe it's a look of boredom. I can't tell.

Yeah, he gets bored when I lift, usually sneaks in a nap. Double unders used to get him excited, but at some point he realized I wasn't being attacked by my rope.

If my programming was up to him all I would do is run until I find a herd of sheep and scatter them.
