Re: deadlift from critique

Looked pretty easy for you.

Might want to tuck your chin/pack your neck just a little more.

I feel you start our with your hips just a tad too high and your shoulders too far over the bar. Bring your hips down and back a little when you set up. When this happens you'll have more of your upper body behind the bar which will help you counterbalance the weight.

Also if you get your hips down a little more you'll have more be able to get more quad and glute to help start the bar off. Right now it looks like you are using mainly your hamstrings and low back only which is good to develop them but will limit your deadlift in the long run.

Yep, I agree with Robert. Shoulder to far forward. You shoulders should be even with the bar the whole time. Bet back and down(like Robert said).
