Deadlift Check

On 5/3/1 currently. PR is a very sloppy 3RM of 335#, wanted to make sure my form was on point and get input on what I can do better. I realize my hips raise faster than the rest of my body but I think I do a pretty good job of keeping my back flat throughout the movement.

Re: Deadlift Check

Your lumbar arch is quite good in all these videos, which is typically one of the biggest problems. That doesn't mean you're without form issues though. You're completing "stripper deadlifts" as my brother likes to call them. Your knees extend much quicker than your hips. CF encourages having the hips and shoulders rise at the same time. Your knees clearly extend completely before your back is locked out so you're having issues with that. A good cue I've used is to push your feet through the ground (like you're pushing the ground down with the force generated in your quads) as you open your hips/keep yourself upright.

Re: Deadlift Check

Drive your hips back (instead of shoulders coming forward) from the top of the movement. This will help make the bar path much straighter on the way down instead of going out a little around your knees.

Re: Deadlift Check

Hey Nate,
I saw the same thing as these guys.
When you set up, rock the weight back into your heels make sure your shins are perpendicular to the ground. You should feel tension in your hamstring, and your hips may rise up a little bit but thats okay.
From there, lock the back in and down everything else the same. This should allow the bar to follow a more straight path rather than working around your knees.
See what was happening is you're having to go almost straight legged in the initial part of the lift to get around the knees.

I was having similar problems and these cues worked for me. I actually corrected it at my L1 with a PVC pipe.

Looks strong though. The weight is coming up no problem.

Re: Deadlift Check

Thanks for the feedback guys I really appreciate it. Jay, I'll give that cue some practice with a dowel and let you know how it goes.

Re: Deadlift Check

good job nate. on the 280 video i noticed your hips shot up quite fast before the bar breaks the floor. thus putting you in a mechanically ineffecient pulling position. at that point, the bar is being moved by your lower back, rather than posterior chain.
