Deadlift Form Critique

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHV2YfdTrFY (Possibly NWFS due to music)

Attempts on video go...

315
365
385
405
430
455 (15 lb PR)

Looking over them myself I see the obvious flaws (back rounding on the PR attempt) and the maybe not so obvious flaws but flaws none the less (not keeping my head neutral when I set up).

Any and all comments are appreciated.

Re: Deadlift Form Critique

After watching the video a few more times I've also noticed that I need to take the slack out of the bar before I pull so that its more of a squeeze off the floor.

I think that may fix some of my rounding specifically on the max effort pull.

Further help is still appreciated.

Saw the rounding but agree with your fix for that. Hey rounding or not great PR! You looked like you had more in you too! Nice.

Re: Deadlift Form Critique

Thanks guys.

This was my first day of using my new Flip camera, and I plan on making heavy use out of it during strength workouts going forward particularly with my Olympic lifting.

Re: Deadlift Form Critique

Shane,
I agree your head needs to be neutral and I maybe wrong but I "think" on the way down your bringing the bar around your knees. Hips back and down bringing the bar in a vertical path, passing the knees and then the knees can bend. You may consider a 45 degree angle so you can see your knees.
My 2 cents.
