Deadlift form check

I think I'm not leaning far forward enuf at the start of the pull (shoulder blades are behind bar instead of above bar)?

Re: Deadlift form check

This deadlift looks very good. You could stand to add about 75 pounds to the bar. Why don't you do that and post it.

Re: Deadlift form check

Thanks, Andrew. I injured my lower back 4 months ago with about 75 lbs more on the bar and am now slowly working back up. Perhaps too cautiously. Am adding 5 lbs to the bar every week so I will get there in 15 weeks. Is that too slow a progression? My back is fine now.

I can't really answer that question because it depends on the individual. 5 pounds a week is a bit slow but you know your body better than I do. Should probably work out fine.

Re: Deadlift form check

Shoulders blades are behind the bar.
Lean forward and squat less.
Keep the knees invisible from the side view when starting the movement.
Have you taken a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the low back?

Re: Deadlift form check

no i have not done an MRI. lower back is much better now. was leaning too far forward in my back squat which was straining the lower back excessively.
