  • Bench and DL form checks

    Hi all,

    Just dropping in for a bench and DL form check. I'm on week 3 of the beginner Rx (I used to lift before though so I'm getting back into things post covid)

    Bench: bar was a bit wobbly, I think because it's an Intek Olympic lifting bar. Not a stiff bar.

    ​Based off bar speed, the RPE should be low. But I kept it at 7 because of the wobbly bar and being afraid to attempt more than 3 reps without a spotter.

    DL
    ​​​​​I feel like most of my energy is taken away in step 3 where I set my back. Even with all that energy expenditure, I get my back barely into neutral position. This worsens as reps progress within a set. Here it's only 4 rep, but the 10 rep sets are tough.

    Thanks,

      These look great. My only advice is to not limit yourself by worrying too much about achieving an ideal neutral back "position" while deadlifting.
