Question Deadlift

Ok so I'm trying to be mindful and remember to keep my arms straight, my legs come up first and once the bar passes my knees I can start extending/ opening the angle of my hips and be fully extended at the top and do the reverse coming down. Check my form please

Re: Deadlift

A few things I saw.

I would like to see a better lumbar curve, you look straight up rounded here. (could be the camera angle but this can always be better)

Your hips rise faster then your shoulders at the start, keep that back angle the same until the bar clears your knees.

At the bottom when you set up, before you pull, set the back, pull your shoulder blades together and you'll feel yourself "suck" into the bar.

check out John Gilson's latest video here on the deadlift. Great stuff inside.

Re: Deadlift

I'm doing SS and moved up to 205 today from the previous 185 and am trying to keep my back at the same angle until bar passes the knees, keep bar close to body, and not lift with your arms. please critique

Re: Deadlift

deadlift , one week with a 20 pound jump?

dude your going to crash and burn.... its what your second week of deadlifting.. add 5 lbs a week to your deadlift vs 15- 20 lbs and you will stay clear of overtraining, getting hurt and just plain old feeling beat up.

5 lbs x 12 weeks, {three months-- you will have a 60 pound increase per 5 reps, so your at 205 for 5 reps for a 231 one rep max, if you do the formula in three months you will be moving 265 lbs for 5 reps giving you a 298 lbs single .. 2 lbs short of 300.),

A 20 pd jump while technique is still being figured out will just give you bad habits. and ultimately bad juju ( could get hurt or damage your wood floors) and stagnation on your lifts while your body is trying to recover.

slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

Re: Deadlift

Rajib... I'm long limbed too (5'3" with 5 feet of legs... LOL) which actually gives us a biomechanical advantage for DL. You may benefit from a slightly wider stance. From the angle it looks like your feet are less than shoulder width.

According to Rip in Starting Strength, "Most men can add 15-20 lbs. to the deadlift each workout for a few weeks". Keep good form, and go for the linear progress as long as you can. The deadlift progresses fast initially.
