Re: Rippetoe Deadlift Set Up, What am i doing wrong?

I agree with the above posts. Just slow it down a bit. Take some time to transition from start to set position. I roll the bar away from my shins, then back to engage my lats and initiate tension in my chest. This is my first transition to set position, before extending my lumbar and thoracic spine.

You cannot compare your lift to someone else. Height, weight, arm and leg length are going to make the set position and the actual lift look very different for each individual.

You look fine! Good job actually.
