    @joee that is a tough angle to judge from.. but I think I would like to see you sit a little more. Could you get a friend to film you, or just get it from a higher angle by sitting your camera on a bench? Gives a better view of what's going on :-)

    as Scott said, hard angle to view from. I did notice, however, your shoulders start in front of the bar when they should be directly above it (for maximum efficiency). I took this snapshot of your DL video and you can kinda see how your shoulders are in front of the bar still after reaching knee-height. Fix this detail and you'll have stronger/heavier pulls. I know it helped me reach my 3pl8 DL a while back for sure and has made me stronger (literally added 20 lbs to my working weight which is no easy feat).

     

    in regards to how low you sit, the shoulders being forward is usually caused by not sitting down low enough (because I think the Bahhbell is over your midfoot for sure). So maybe try that and get back to the forum? sit lower into it for more hamstring activation and watch that your shoulders stay over the bahhbell instead of in front or behind it.

     

    Best of luck!

    Thanks for all the feedback ! Got another angle and 5 reps so you can see a little clearer :)

    From the looks of it (I'll study the video more in depth later on, I'm at work right now taking a little break), your form looks good and you're really squeezing the triangle between your lats, arms and quads. This is a great thing. If I had to judge one little detail I would say you're driving your hips up from your "stable" position before the bahhbell comes off the ground. You want to pull the slack out of the bar in your low position and then drive up with your hips WHILE carrying the bar already and not shoot up before you're lifting the bar off the floor. It's hard to do, took me a while too. Some people drive up before the bar leaves and others sit lower into it before lifting. Either way, it's not the most effective way to DL.

    I think reps 2-4 are the most indicative of this. Now that you have video of yourself, try and fix this by placing your body initially in the position that you're in a milisecond before lifting the bar off the ground as that is your strongest point. Don't worry too much about it unless you're trying to compete, this is more of an effectiveness cue than anything else, but it should also help you make the DL feel less like a good morning at times.

     

    Some people are built to deadlift heavy and others are not. I would say given how high your natural stance is (same thing happens to me, long femurs), you're going to have a hard time DLing HEAVY wegiths (in the several hundreds), however that shouldn't discourage you, I'm hit 5x5 @265 yesterday and felt great!

     

    I love the shin angle though, you really have that going for you!
