Deadlift - Form Check

Hey guys,

After the help you have given me to improve my back squat I was wondering if you could give me any pointers on my deadlift.

I predict a 500% increase in your Deadlift if you cease shaving your legs like a girl.

Re: Deadlift - Form Check

Is this a 1RM weight for you? If it is, then I can accept what I see (although you could still work on a few things). If it's not, then there's work to do.

1) At the beginning of the lift your butt/hips shoot up first.
2) Your back rounds a bit in the middle...try to keep this tight (again if it's a 1RM or very close, it's going to round a little.)
3) I can't tell, but it looks like the bar comes away from your legs - try to keep it as close as possible.

Otherwise, you're doing fine imo. Keep it up!

Re: Deadlift - Form Check

What Brian said. Also, set the bar down. Dropping it doesn't count as a complete rep. (unless you're doing a WOD and that's what the standards allow, which is a discussion for another thread...)

Re: Deadlift - Form Check

Brian, it was after my last set of 5-3-1 so i was pretty fatigued! That was 130kg. My 1RM is 155kg.

Thanks for the advice. I will definitely work on keeping the bar closer to my shins as I know sometimes (mainly in WODs/ light weight high reps) It can get out in front a bit

Re: Deadlift - Form Check

That's more than I'm lifting, but try to keep your back straighter and your hips and shoulders raising at the same rate til bar passes your knees. It seemed like you shot up with one and not the other.

Re: Deadlift - Form Check

I'd have you change almost everything and use Rip's setup.

Set up:
Step to the bar. The bar should be about an inch away from your shins, over the middle of your foot. The bar should not move from that position until you lift it.
Reach down and take your grip WITHOUT BENDING YOUR KNEES.
Put your shins to the bar and shove your knees out. After this, don't lower your hips.
Take a huge breath and set your back by squeezing your chest up.

Then, drag the bar up your legs.
