Keep your head facing up too, chest high, and dig downward, rather than thinking of it as picking weight upward.

That's me... next?.

NOW THAT I COMMENTED HERE you must read the CELEBRITY DEATHMATCH THREAD and give your thoughts on what would happen in that room!

Keep your shoulders behind the bar when you initiate the deadlift. Your body is too far forward, in front of the bar.

Also, don't put the bar against your shins before you grab it. It's better to align the bar over the middle of your foot. Doing that will provide more room for the knees/legs to bend and straighten, but only just enough so that you don't lose precious leverage.
they pretty much covered it

what do your warmup sets look like?
