If you're referring to the first shot of the BB, I saw that too. I fixed it after that (there's about 5 minutes in between when I took that shot and the lift itself). I can't stand off-center plates, it's just a thing.

Re: Broke my deadlift record!!!!

Good lift bro, How long does it take to build the grip for these heavy lifts? I just started lifting heavy again and had a hard time holding onto 315lbs.

You probably can't tell from the video, but I was using a mixed grip (one hand knuckles out, one hand knuckles in). That's a BIG help. Chalk helps too, but moreso if you are using a really textured (read-newer) bar. Other than that, pullups seem really strengthen the grip with the added benefit of making you good at pullups. I have a grip trainer, but I never use it...might want to try that.

Re: Broke my deadlift record!!!!

Joe, loved watching that PR.

Your form looked great to me. My PR at 275 is atrocious -- so much so that my real PR should probably be around 245 or 250 @ 145# BW: rounded back, hips rising too fast, etc.

Congrats on hitting a solid PR, AND with good form.... AND with a hilarious video to boot.

Thanks! I will say that the whole "no mirrors" idea is a good one, simply b/c it teaches you what proper form is supposed to feel like. It allows you to make corrections mid-movement. I would suggest really practicing at a lower weight, with someone watching you and letting you know what you're doing right/wrong. That way, you can learn to associate certain feelings with proper form. It'll take a while, but the result will be worth it.
