Sorry guys I must of got the term butt wink confused .The problem I had was keeping my back upright while squatting and deadlifting , this was based on feedback given by a trainer. I was able to fix this with the squat by not going so low .I was going ass to grass almost .

After a practice session today deadlifting with an empty bar I suspect I would be fine with some 20 kilo plates on the bar because it was only as I was about to touch the bar down to the ground that I couldnít keep my back upright .Some 20 kilo plates on the bar means less distance for the bar to travel to the ground

Keep the back upright can mean different things to different people. 9 times out of 10 inexperienced deadlifters end up still-legging their deadlifts and this can be corrected because common form setup mistakes are being made.

Do you mean you were deadlifting like a SLDL, or are you literally trying to deadlift with an upright back? If so, this isn't a maximal leverage position, and is not correct deadlift form. It will generally force you into a position where your hips are too low while pulling, and this can be hard to achieve unless your feet are too far away from the bar to start with. This will cause further issues when you begin to pull.

What I will do tomorrow is get my brother to use his IPhone to record me deadlifting and then post the video so you guys can have a look at it and give me some feedback .I donít think my form is too bad

thanks for all the help, much appreciated
