How close was this to your max?

Focus on leading with your head and pushing through your heals so that your butt won't be so high and your back won't be so rounded. If you do it correctly the bar should slide up your shins. If you aren't at least a little bruised the next day, you probably didn't do it right.

Watch your foot position. You want to make sure they are in a good spot under the bar before you sink your hips. It was hard to tell from the video where they are. I would setup with feet about 50% under the bar, grab the bar, then sink hips.

You are starting with your hips up. Once you grab the bar you want to sink them to a good leverage point. The yellow line shows your angle. It is nearly parallel to the ground. This is bad leverage and will place a lot of strain on your back.



You want the angle to look more like this:

This means that when you deadlift, don't think about pulling the bar off the ground. Think about standing up, leading the lift with the head and not by pulling. Where the head goes, but body follows.

If the head is leading the lift the body will naturally follow, and good form is easier to maintain. If you instead try to pull the bar off the ground and your head/eyes starts to move down, your body will follow, and you will lose leverage.

Where the head goes, so does the body.

Don't pull the bar off the ground. Get set up, and stand up with the bar in your hands, leading the lift with the head. Lock out the deadlift by moving your hips forward.

Instead of thinking about lifting the weight off the ground, think about pushing your head up towards the ceiling as quickly as possible. You should feel like your head is the first thing to move up. That should keep your butt from lifting at the start of the lift.

One way of getting used to pushing through your heals is the do RDL's. When you do them, focus on sticking your but out backwards as far as you can as you come down. Not only will this work your glutes and hams, it'll also get you used to the feeling of having all your weight on your heals, because that's where the weight will naturally go as you move your butt backwards to lower the weight.

Edit; I didn't see BTB's response before I wrote mine. How obvious is it that I'm a student of his when it comes to dead lifting?

Though I'd post my bench as it's never been critiqued. I don't know the guy in the second vid, I knew I would get the lift but asked him to stand behind just in case, he tried to lift out and set the bar wonky but I still got it. My only thought is that I should switch to feet flat benching as some federations I'm looking to join require it.

I can't stand overzealous spotters. Form looks good.
