Looks more like RDL or SLDL.

Try to get your hips lower and use more leg/hip drive. Hips and shoulders will raise at relatively the same rate until you pass your knees, then straighten out up top.

Sam, I agree with Anthony. With your hips as high as they were you were doing an RDL. Start the lift with your hips lower. Great back/shoulder/chest position!! Just for my own nit-picking curiosity, were you using a mixed or prone grip? I couldn't really tell.

Concur with Anthony and Joe.

For a Stiff Legged or Romanian DL, that's good form.

But for a conventional deadlift, what Andy has written is spot on. Hips down and drive with heels (pushing feet through the floor) until the bar is at knee height.

All the best,
Arden

Thanks for the reply, but now i am confused..... I feel if i start with my hips much lower my shoulders will be behind the bar ? But i will give it a try and post another video.

Joe it was a mixed grip

Thanks Again

Check this out:

Now watch your initial starting position in the video (use the dark area on the white pole behind you as a reference) It looks like you might have a good starting position for your geometry, maybe a bit high like mentioned above, but you definately don't return to it after the first rep, that's when you switch to the other forms of deadlift.
