Re: Help with deadlift - back rounding

Your setting up to the bar all wrong and then that just leads to bad form through the whole movement.

http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/C...dliftSetup.wmv w/f/s

You need to go to the main site exercise and video section scroll to power lifts
and whatch all the deadlift vids.
I would also suggest whatching all the O-lift vids too.

Re: Help with deadlift - back rounding

Hey all,

Thanks for the (mostly) excellent advice. I have taken it on board and had another attempt at 100kg today:

I think it is much improved but there is still some slight rounding in the upper back. Any further comments would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Help with deadlift - back rounding

Very nice, That is a much cleaner looking Deadlift. I thought your back looked good, any rounding was negligible. I think you could still bring your butt up just an inch or so and get those shoulders a little more in front of the bar, but other than that it looked perfect. Very nice job!

Re: Help with deadlift - back rounding

Better, especially in setting your lower back, but I think looking down about 6-8 feet in front of you rather than straight forward will help quite a bit. And you definitely need to move forward and have your scapulas over the bar instead of behind them.
