Hey all, got a question about deads after the WOD this morning.

As my weight gets heavier in a workout, I notice that when I initially pull on the weight, I briefly use my back to pull the weight up before my legs "catch up." I don't do this with light weight; it seems to be pure legs with no movement at all from my back.

I feel like this is bad form and I'm probably using heavier weight than I can handle. However, I know the deadlift works the back as much as the legs, so is it a bad thing to use the back some in the movement, or am I on my way to injury?

Thanks in advance,
