    Set deadlift OR but did I do it with good form?

    March 5, 2018, 7:30 am

    EDIT: Stupid autocorrect - not OR but PR lol. I'm a few hundred pounds away from that lol!

     

     

    I have only deadlifted since starting ppl and want to make sure that as I go up in weight my form is ok too.

    What do you think?

    Too easy @stemjeff! Great work man, I think you could already go up another 20lbs heavier with the speed that moved! 🏋

    Thanks Scott! I want to hit 315 this month so I am glad you feel I can already add 20 lbs next time. We will see on Friday!

     

    But form is ok? I'm not doing anything that would make it more difficult for me?

    Awesome! Thanks Aaron! (I'm sure at some point you've been addressed as A-A-Ron?)

    Oh yeah, we will see!! Form looks OK, but it is tough to tell from a front-on angle. Maybe try recording from the side next time - that way you can see if there is any spinal flexion or anything going on.

    I tried 275 at the end of my workout today but my grip strength had deteriorated at this point because I did the high volume portion first. I will try it again next week at the start of my workout instead

    Good effort man, unlucky with the grip. If you think it was definitely the grip that held you back, get some chalk or straps if you really need them. From the side on view on this one though, you did seem to shoot up with your hips first. I think if you had followed through with the lift a lot of the work would have been done by your lower back.

     

    Probably a better idea to go for PRs at the start of your workout though for sure haha.

    So I pulled off 275 today for a new PR.

     

    I seem to be shooting through my hips though on this lift (and I did this at the start of today's Pull workout so that helped too - grip strength stayed for the entire workout!). I tried to keep the bar riding up my legs but I can see myself locking my legs out too early. Do you have any tips or things I should try noticing so I don't lock out too soon?

    You need to keep your chest out and shoulders back, push through your heels. Your ass is coming up before you start to move the weight which is putting you into a 90 degree position. I can tell you lean down slightly and yank up which is getting everything in motion to start the lift but once your upper body meets all that resistance the rest of you continue with the movement if that makes somewhat sense? Good starting position though. Instead get any slack out of your arms and at the same time you pull with your arms push with your heels and let it all move together thrusting your hips forward.

    It's not terrible.. your form will break down a bit when going for PRs.. but yes your hips are shooting up a bit first, and that's what caused you to come out of position, as Aaron said. Might be worth incorporating some deficit deadlifts into your routine to help you learn how to stay in position when pulling off the ground. Imagining you're pushing the ground 'down' will also help, but check out the video below.
