Deadlift Form Check V2.0

I worked on some of the suggestions from last week. Here is a video of me pulling 280lbs(~ 75% of 1 rep max) from today. I think it looks a little better, but it is hard for me to tell. let me know what ya'll think.

Re: Deadlift Form Check V2.0

Your hips are too high. If the bar swings away from you when you pull it off the ground, it means your back is too horizontal.

Re: Deadlift Form Check V2.0

Agreed with Bryan. You're hips are too high.

The way you've pulled this weight would be great for a Stiff Legged Deadlift or a Romanian Dead lift. But for a traditional deadlift needs more leg drive during "the first pull" of the movement.

The first pull of the movment is from the ground to about knee height. That's all leg drive. A little bit of hip, but mostly leg drive.

The second pull of the movement from the knees to lockout, is more back and hip.

I hope that helps?

All the best,
Arden

Re: Deadlift Form Check V2.0

Thanks. I kinda felt the same way, but last week when I posted a form check everyone said my hips were too low. I guess I need to find a happy medium.

Re: Deadlift Form Check V2.0

Put your shoulder or scapula directly over the bar and that will be your happy medium.

Re: Deadlift Form Check V2.0

Provided everything else is correct, if you pull the bar off the ground and it doesnt swing away from your shins and it doesnt dig into your shins, then you are in the right position.

Shoulders too far in front (high hips) = the bar swings away.

Shoulders too far back (low hips) = the bar digs into your shins.

Pick the bar bar up a few inches, hold it, and analyze the situation. In the correct position the bar will remain in contact with the shin, but not put pressure on it without any effort to purposefully hold the bar there.

Re: Deadlift Form Check V2.0

If you pause the video at 9 seconds that is the position you want to be pulling from. You almost set it up correctly there, but then at the last second you rock forward taking yourself out of proper pulling position. I've included a picture from your videos illustrating what I am talking about
