Re: deadlift 1rm

This might come a cross as a little mean, so if you're overly sensitive just skip my post.

Your starting position was WAY off. This is the first thing you need to fix before even thinking about anything else. Why has no one mentioned how the bar was swinging out WAY in front of you.

If you have a coach, slap him across the face.

If you can't get a competent coach, go get Starting Strength, read it and you'll see what you're doing wrong, what to do to fix it and why.

Re: deadlift 1rm

Hey bro, you are going to hurt yourself like that! Smack whoever that was that said good lift and get yourself a coach...or friend who knows how to deadlift.

Re: deadlift 1rm

Start out lighter, seriously. Your set up is disastrous. Check out this link on your set up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Syt7A23YnpA (WFS, Rippetoe link). Make sure your shins are touching the bar before you lift, if they aren't, you're back is guaranteed to arch thus getting you closer to snapping your body in two at the waist. Also, try pinching your shoulder blades while you are starting the lift as to help you lift the hips and chest at the same time.

But, seriously, lighten the load, you probably won't be able to lift as heavy as you did with better form right out of the gate, but it will be worth it and eventually you'll destroy your current PR.

Re: deadlift 1rm

Agree with everything these guys are saying. You're clearly a strong guy or you wouldn't be able to move that weight at all......but you're just asking for injury.

Take some time to figure out the deadlift. I went through sort of the same deal. I was pulling good weight.....435 at 163lbs BW, but it was ugly....albeit not quite as bad as what I just saw, but what ended up happening was when I went for my next PR at 445 I hurt my back.....posted a few videos on here and nobody was surprised.
At my L1 cert a few weeks back I figured out the positioning with a PVC pipe. It doesn't have to be heavy at all to figure out the positioning your body is supposed to be in. Once you figure it out, hit some light sets and make sure you can FEEL your body in the correct posture.
Got back to 531 about a month after hurting my back and have been able to pull 330 x 11, 350 x 9, 370 x 6. I think for you its an issue of being aware of your body rather than just grabbing the bar and picking it up.
Save yourself from getting injured and figure the lift out. I was lucky and only got sidelined for 3-4 weeks.

Re: deadlift 1rm

thanks man, i am trying to get it figured out. i have been hitting real light weight, 135-155# and getting the feel for it again. i took some time off since that video even though it didnt hurt, and now i am trying to get my form right, shoulders over bar push with the legs tight midsection. its working good. thanks for all the insight.

Re: deadlift 1rm

Once that form comes, more weight will come instantly.

True, but the technique cratered before the weight even left the floor.

I was personally more annoyed with the 90 degree rotation of the earth than concerned with his form.
....there is a difference between "not perfect" and "dangerous"

A 1RM can be "not perfect" but at NO point EVER should a lift, max or not, be "dangerous"... unless you are going for a Olympic medal or some other meaningful competition... maybe... but never in just a workout, ever.

I don't know the lifter so I can't say for him- but for a lot of guys, the curved back isn't really dangerous when, say, done every few months going for a max. Depends on just how strong you are.

Disagree. Bad technique is always dangerous. Will you always get injured when using bad technique? Certainly not, but that doesn't make it safe and proper.
