Take a video then too, and post it WITH the original for side by side comparison. Always helpful, and we can help perhaps a bit more once we see the before and after what we had to say....

I find my form improves significantly if I don't mind my shins and scrape the bar against them

I would've posted about the bent arms, but it was already mentioned.

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.

Switched to sumo and it seems to have helped a LOT. I just couldn't get comfortable in a regular stance. If I pushed right back on my heels, my shins felt VERY tight. Tried a semi sumo stance and it felt GREAT. Would welcome any feedback:

I pull sumo everyonce in a while but I squat heavy after DL day so it wouldn't work for me if I switch my routine around I would probably pull sumo a lot more

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!

Your shoulders should not be behind the bar, you want to keep your shoulders over the bar. The

When you drop your hips before you start the lift your shins should be very close if not touching the bar.

Review these articles for the proper setup for the deadlift:

What position were your feet in during conventional deadlift? Straight ahead or pointed out? you may have ankle mobility issues if you're feeling tightness in your shins. Do you have any tightness/pain when squatting?

You need to get your shoulders further over the bar, think of pulling in a straight line (up). If you watch the video from the side, your are pulling the bar up and back like this: / instead of this: | (look at your arms at 0:09)

Also, you don't need to exaggerate the lockout, it looks like you're leaning back a little too far at lockout.

When I competed in the early 90's I switched from a regular deadlift stance to a sumo and added 40 lbs to my dead's. It was just the way I was built from a mechanics stand point.
I would still add rack deads to your work out btw, vary your pin settings in the rack.
