In terms of not hurting yourself, you're fine. In terms of mechanics, you're pulling the bar around your knees, which will be a problem as the weight gets heavier. Try starting with your hips a little higher and you shoulder blades over the bar.

Also, why are you pulling off of blocks?

im pulling off block because its makes the weight higher...im still not using 45lbs plates so the weight is pretty low...and u just said that i need to start higher...god knows how im going to do that...
what do u mean by pulling around the knees?? im trying the maintain the weight over my heels...are u saying that its still not enough on the heels??
shoulder blades over the bar=arm straight and vertical to the floor???
starting higher would make my hips and butt more backward so that would put even more weight over the heels right??
ok, ill try again with another block underneath the plates so i start higher
tnx

I mean starting with your hips higher, not the bar higher - put your butt further up in the air. It's not a big deal, but it is something that will hold you back as the bar gets heavier.

It looks like you are trying to squat the weight up. I may be crazy, so wait for some other feedback before redoing your vids.

mhmm, reds right you're pulling around your kneeds instead of driving with the heels and letting the bar just ride close to your body. You shouldnt have to try to get around your legs, it's natural. You know you're doing it right when you start getting battle scars. My shins are all screwed up from these things. wear pants.

it does scratched me nicely in the shins...
so your saying i should start with the butt higher and that would keep me pulling the weight from the back of the foot instead of my knees...
that would cause my back to be more parallel to the floor and more of lower back envolve right???

Yes it would. Once you put a heavy weight on the bar you won't be able to try and squat it up like that. It is a deadlift. It should involve your back.


If you really want to try and keep your chest up higher and "squat" it up you should try sumo deadlifts.

No prob. Mark Rippetoe's 5pg PDF is a good read for sure. The picture on the first page of the PDF describes the bar/body positioning that was mentioned above.

When you go down it looks really weird, you start bending over and then it's like your knees pop and your legs finally bend.
