Deadlifts (seems to be the theme this week!)

Feel like my DL's have come apart some. I backed the weight down (first video in the list is actually the last of the night), and really worked on maintaining connections. I think I need to stay here for a bit before working the weight back up again.

It's really interesting to me how 'everything' ties together. I tend to loose my back squats by tipping forward and I lean forward some in my air squats.. I am 100% sure its all related!!

Re: Deadlifts (seems to be the theme this week!)

You weren't quite set before you started the deadlift, theres a bit of hip lift before the weight moves. It's minor and everything else looks good. I will say that the playlist thing is rather annoying, can you just put them all into 1 video next time?

The heavy one had a bit of hip movement before the weight lifted but the others all looked pretty good, keep up the good work make sure you straighten all the way out at the top

Re: Deadlifts (seems to be the theme this week!)

Disagree that you're shooting your hips up; what's actually happening is that you're setting up too low, so you're finding your "true" pull position before the weight leaves the ground. Move your butt up a bit, shoulders more forward and torso more horizontal, and you should be able to pull without adjusting.

More hip bend on the way down before the knees bend; you shouldn't have to move the bar around your knees.

I know that the PL is annoying, sorry!! My friend is shooting them on his still camera, I need to buy a video camera!!

Thanks for looking though :-)

interesting, going to have to go back and re-read Rippetoe (again)... I think I am missing something.
