Thanks. I find I'm able to lock them when I'm standing straight up, but lose it when I go down for the bar. Thoughts on fixing that?

Just checking to see if anyone had problems with the YouTube link I posted. It was my first time posting to it.

Here ya go, PSB:



Try using the full "youtube.com" version, not the "youtu.be" kinda thing. Then put YT with [] around it before the url, and /YT with [] around it after the url. Or just click the YouTube button in the post creation/editing tools section, and place the full url between the YT and the /YT (plus brackets) bits.

Set the bar down in between each rep and reset your hips and lower back tightness.

Deadlift for reps. Everything feels easy off the floor, lockout fails. When I watched the video I thought, "should have squeezed my glutes," but I didnt think to when it mattered.

Your hips are raising and the bar is visibly moving towards you after it leaves the ground. You're also inconsistent between the different reps. I think it all comes down to the technique of rolling the bar. There's no way to replicate the same starting position and pull from the floor when the bar is in motion. A split second difference in your timing means the bar is as much as a few inches out of place too close or as is usually the case, too far away from your shins, and as far as I'm concerned even 1 inch out of place is too far.

I'd recommend that you find or order some chalk. Using chalk will keep you from having to spend all that time bent over getting your grip. Any extra second you spend bent over is lost tightness and lost ability to take advantage of the stretch shortening cycle, both of which are very important for max lifts.

Get your feet in position, stand nice and tall, take a huge breath, pressurize your abs by pushing them out to your belt (of flex the shit out of them if beltless), THEN bend over, grab the bar, and simply stand back up.

Thank you.

Believe it or not I have chalk. My hands are more sore than a sluts butt.
