Not sure what you meen by jerking at the beginning of your lift. You shook like mad at the top of your deadlift, but it didn't really look like you were hitching it, your body just quaked a little. Just curious, where was that rack pull compared to your knees? It looked pretty low. I know everybody's different but I'd think with a 475 dead you could easily do more than 500 on a knee high rack pull.

Im not the best person at judging form so I dont want to offer advice that could be wrong I dont do too much deadlifting.. But dude when you let go of that rack pull I thought the house was coming down.

You look a lot bigger than me even though we are the same height and weight :(

You seem to be doing some crazy hitching/bouncing/I don't even know what it was at the top of the lift. For your rack pull you set up with a sumo stance but still with your hands outside your legs?

When I do rack pulls I put it through the 1st holes on the rack, its actually below my knees middle of my shins. Yeah Ive had in the past alot of grip issues even with chalk, which is why I havent gone much heavier on rack pulls, but it is progressively getting better.

Yeah Deeder I was defitnetely jerking more than usual, I can get 465 real smooth, I was just having trouble with 475, 1st time lifting that much. With the rack pull was just trying something different, usually use a narrower stance with same hand positioning.
