425lbs raw @192 bw

If anyone has any suggestions on the continuing of getting my form right i'd appreciate. I've been deadlifting for about 6-7 months now so I'm still a work in progress. I do believe its gotten better since my last pr but I'm sure it still needs some work. I'm starting with my hips lower but it still seems to turn into a SLDL pretty quick off the ground. I'm not having any trouble with it so maybe its not that big of a deal.?.?

Don't yank the bar at the beginning of the lift, I think that's a big reason your hips are coming up so fast. Also, pick a point high up on the wall in front of you and stare at it the whole time. This will keep your head up and hopefully help you keep your hips down a bit. Be sure to lock your knees at the top of the lift. You let your knees drift forward as you lock it out at the top...

some people just naturally pull turtle back style. i am not sure if this is the case for you.

trying sitting lower, chest out, lowerback tight, and pull back. imagine bar is sitting at 6 o'clock and u want to pull it to 2 o'clock (or 10 if your thinking the opposing direction).
their is also a article floating around t-nation titled "top 10 deadlifting mistakes"



ps: im a sumo puller

I agree about the hips. Keep them down and drive your feet through the floor. That's an impressive weight for a SLDL!

i wouldn't call it an SLDL, and not quite a strict DL.

I just watched your video again and another thing I noticed is that you start with the bar far away from your body. Get it right against your shins to start and pull it up your legs the whole time.

Careful if you decide to bring it up on your legs, I've scraped up both my knees and my shins pretty bad with nowhere near that amount of weight.

I have scars and constantly have scabs from deadlifting and that's pulling with knee high socks on. It's a part of deadlifting that you can't escape.

More like I lift as heavy as I can and then some, I'm just letting the OP know what he's gonna be looking at when he pulls that close, and that it's normal for good form. I sure as **** wish that someone would have told me that I'm gonna be scraping up my legs when I first started deads, I had to learn that lesson the hard way, why should others go through the same thing.

Why would you have to be dick and make an idiot comment like that when I'm just trying to help someone?

If you learned better form (your form does not look dangerous, just not optimal) I bet you could pull mid-high 400s within a couple weeks.
