Re: Deadlift Form

I feel his hip height is on the border. I think it is more important to get more of his upper body behind the bar. This will help leverage against the weight. A byproduct of getting more of his upper body behind the bar might be a slightly lower hip starting position.

A question Carson has to ask himself is where does he get power out of his hips and legs? If we tell him to put his hips down more to start, then when he really starts to pull, his hips shoot up and then the weight moves, then he is starting too low. If we tell him to put his hips down more to start, and as he pulls his hips and shoulders elevate at virtually the same rate, then this might be a good position.
