When you say keeping the bar on straight horizontal line do you mean the bar rolls out of position for you during your set up? If so and thats the case make sure your deadlifting on an even/flat floor, the plates you are using (at least the primary ones you place on the bar first) are exactly the same in size and shape. Also make sure the plates are kept together tightly.

No, i meant that, after i lift it out of the floor, the bar tends to swing a little bit around my body.

awesome thread... I have a question, the hardest part for me is getting the bar off the floor, when it gets to higher weights, once its up I can pull a lot heavier than what i can break off the floor... any tips ??

Carl.
Mentally commit. Instead of doing reps to build strength as a body builder would. Take around 80% of your 1rep max, and do singles with 60 second rest periods. Work as many as you can before burning out.

No touch and go nonsense will ever help a lifter breaking weight from the floor, just sheer will and commitment. Each week try adding 15-30lbs or add a 5% incremental increase until you feel the weight is too heavy, or until you can only do one single. Point is not to go to failure as much as to get used to always breaking the weight off the ground. I would say you should run this 3to5 weeks before needing to deload, or switch routines. Once again this is just to condition yourself to breaking the bar off the ground.

Speed work helps later on if you find you can break but have poor acceleration. Some useful assistance exercises to help this may be front squats, leg presses with similar leg stance as deadlift, pin partial squats, starting from the angle your deadlift starts working 3x3 with 30-50lbs more then what you regularly squat. Some guys swear by defict deadlifts, others by partial pulls. Getting all the muscles used in the deadlift especially the back usually works in getting the deadlift stronger.

Wow! That was informative.

My absolute favorite lift is the deadlift, and this guy just explained all of my troubles and how to deadlift even better. Holy Cow.

I loved how he explained all the different quadrants and how they are supposed to work together. I always just grabbed, flattenend my back and drove up, and it's true he shows essentially the same thing, but he explains why and what muscles, as well as a lot more than that.

I can now see some flaws in my own movement, my absolute best strength movement mind you, in these videos. Thank you very much. I am going to get stronger because of this.
