  • Shoulders and hips are completely level in the starting position of a deadlift

    Hi BBM,
    I am a 188cm tall guy and I used to have a garbage setup with my shins bend way too much and my shoulders too far over the bar. I did this to mimic the back angles I saw on the youtubes.

    After starting to set up properly (like Alan Thrall describes it in his videos) I noticed that my shoulders and hips are completely level (or the shoulders might be 1 cm higher, max). This leads to a very uncomfortable feeling in my lower back when I initiated the pull. It always feels like it wants to curl forward. I also got hurt twice with paused deadlifts now. This is why i seek advice.

    I tried to lower my hips and letting my shins come forward a bit more, but this leads to my lower back rounding significantly.

    What do I do? Should I pull sumo?

    Also, my deadlift is the only lift that is kinda stuck and is basically not progressing at all.

    Looking forward to your answer. If neccessary, I can provide some video footage, too.

    Cheers,
    René

    Are you on the BBM facebook page? I'd post a form check there. Otherwise, post a video form check down in the unmoderated training forum.
