Not sure what upper back rounding has to do with how I am driving that lift. I am driving it by moving hips back.

Also, when you say partial, what do you mean? I am about 1-2 inches off the floor so it can't mean depth. I assume you mean it's not a true RDL?

I perform mine in the same manner Ripp describes his. My upper back rounds, but I've never heard it discussed, so perhaps I missed something. My lower back stays tight, and my hips drive back. I ride the back down my leg, and do not allow my lower back to break.

I don't understand the upper back comment so perhaps you can explain more why you feel that's important to an RDL.
