  • Deadlift formcheck

    I'm having problem keeping my upperback flat and also minor rounding in lowerback on the heavier reps.

    I feel like only lifting with my back and nothing with the legs .

    Looks like you don't "pull the slack" out of the bar before lifting. Try tighten your lats and push your chest out before starting the lift should help I think.

    Try to get your elbows to point back instead of to the sides like in your clip. That will tighten your lats and make it easier to push your chest out.

        It seems that with the way you are stooping over to grab the bar your back has no choice but to round. Maybe if you dropped your butt lower than you are supposed to during the setup it would give you some room to extend your back and pull your shoulders back. Then you could raise your butt to the correct position and pull, hopefully retaining the tight back and shoulder position you created. Just an idea.

          I used to do this 4-5 months ago until i saw alans youtube SS deadlift clip. https://youtu.be/rKV3F-4aA-s

          I pretty sure i have the same problem here bad angle tho.

          When i try to get my legs abit lower they just shot up when i start lifting anyway.

          I do have a very long torso and short arm i'm guessing this might be why im so horizontal in the beging aswell.

        Try widening your grip slightly, this may give you more room to push your chest towards the ceiling and then right before you pull pull your elbows almost in , making your back tight( taking the slack out of the bar)

          I think when at start my next program in 3 weeks i will go back with lower weights and work on my form and film every set . See all bad form reps as missed reps. Thanks for all the tips!

            One other thing I noticed is that you are quite fast in your set up try slowing it down making each step last 2-3 seconds so that you have the time to fall the 5 step deadlift approach .
