    Deadlift form check

    November 27, 2016, 6:19 pm

    Hey

    I did some deadlifts today and got someone to video it, im suprised how much my back was bent in this, my lower back looks like it stays relatively straight but theres still a pretty clear bend. Im 6ft3 and when I was doing the deadlifts everything felt fine whcih is why I was suprised to see a bend like this, what do you guys think?

    hey whats up buddy!! My name is Reggie and I am a Youtuber and I just watched your video. From watching it off top I could see a problem which is you not keeping your chest up and squeezing your shoulder blades back.Try that and tell me how it goes. By the way check out and Subscribe to my Youtube Channel ReggieBFitness.

    Hey @ollymccully.

     

    Your form actually looks pretty good to be honest. Being taller, it can be harder to get down for the deadlift, so you're doing pretty good :-)

     

    If does look as though the main issue may be that your shoulders are rolling slightly forward, which is causing a bit of rounding in your upper back. Now this isn't as bad as having a rounded lower back, but it's still something to try and work on.

     

    You need to retract your shoulder blades, like you would for a bench or squat, and keep your upper back tight. Imagine you're tucking your lats into your pockets.

     

    Give it a try with lighter weight focusing on those things, and see if you notice a difference.

     

    Let us know if there's anything else you need!
