Back Squat and Deadlift

Hey just looking to check up on form.

Mostly worried about the deadlift, not sure if my back is rounding too much?

It feels like it is, Its bloody heavy. (My 1 rep is about 170-180kg/375-397lb)

BS 128kg/282lb 3 rep(Not wfs due to sound, I say holy mother-xxxxer at the end)

154kg/340lb deadlift 5 rep (wfs)

Re: Back Squat and Deadlift

I thought the squats were pretty solid, maybe try to get your elbows down just a tad more.

Deadlift--you seem a little lose in between reps. Are you sucking your gut in or pushing it out? I'd try to flatten the back our more and start with more of your body behind the bar.

I try to engage core and "push" into the belt.

I feel as though I do start with a flat back, but you can see distinct curvature as I lift...

Re: Back Squat and Deadlift

you seem to be in a sense loading and unloading between each rep. id say instead of slamming the weight down so hard just do a touch and go. weight doesnt seem to be a problem for a 5rm. keep that head and chest up to keep that spine neutral. on the first pull stand up drop those hips back soon as the weight touches the ground stand back up. if you dont have time to unload (curve your back) then you wont.
