Revised deadlift form check - trying to make it as good as it can get

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8k8xsR3Jxzc (WFS)

225x1x5

After the first rep, I found the right hip angle/height to start at by seeing where my body naturally put my hip as I lowered the weight. The hip angle felt very comfortable actually. Chest went up at the same time as hip (Thank you Struan Potter for that advice ), but my back lost its tightness over the course of the set. Is that just a strength thing?

On a sidenote, since I am more likely to need to reset my deadlift due to form than missing reps (as Im sure I could hit 245x5 with a crazy rounded back), how should I know when to reset it?

Back's too flat at the starting position, thus putting you in the exact same position as last time

EDIT: By that I mean it's too parallel to the ground.

Damnit. :P

Do you mean my hips are to high in the setup for the whole set?

Yes. Drop your hips a little bit.

Think of pushing your butt back as far as you can and push your chin forward. That should help you get the correct starting position!!!

Okay, ill drop the hips and just try as hard as possible to bring my chest up. Should the position be lower than my first rep's setup? Because that was lowerr than reps 2-5

Re: Revised deadlift form check - trying to make it as good as it can get

Keep your arms straight at the start of the lift.
Pull on the bar to take the slack and bend out of the bar and then pull harder to bring it off the floor.
The big elbow strike you do on the first lift were you start with arms bent and try and yank it off the floor is a big issue. Your asking for injury. Go on the crossfit journal and search Dave Tate....the videos on there are massively helpful.

Re: Revised deadlift form check - trying to make it as good as it can get

I'm posting in the order I see things.

Keep you shoulders above or behind (body side) of the bar. This is a deadlift, it is not a clear or snatch. A deadlift is a pulling back movement....if your not off balance or on the edge of balance your not pulling back enough.

Re: Revised deadlift form check - trying to make it as good as it can get

You need to learn to take in air properly to brace your mid section. That will help you stay tighter throughout the lift. If your shoulders rise when you take a deep breath you are breathing wrong. You must use your diaphragm to breath. You should be trying to fill your stomach full of air and then a bit more and hold it for the lift.

Re: Revised deadlift form check - trying to make it as good as it can get

Your shoulders move forward during the first 2-3inches of the pull. This is partly because your shoulders start in front of the bar making pulling back difficult. Another reason for this is that your a quad dominant....your hamstrings are very weak. Start doing some dedicated ham and glute exercises 2, 3 or even 4 times a week. I have a feeling my next comment will be that you are back dominant through out the lift. Going to watch it again.
