I've been working hardcore on my form since i've started conventional deadlifting, and feel that it's come far. If you see anything you think needs improved, let me know. I've got it checked over by my journal buddies and they say it looks fine, but I need to work on my negative/setting it back down, which i'm going to start doing! Thanks.

Solid my man...Solid! Way to maintain your form over the 8 reps.

When resetting, just reverse the motion. Bend your knees once the bar clears them.

I think your form is pretty damn good. Don't think there's anything wrong with the negative either.

You look solid jed. Were you sumo DLing before or are you just starting out?

note - thank you for the input.

brian - thanks man. i was sumo deadlifting before, and my PR was 390 for one. then i decided to conventional style it up because it hits more muscles (for me) and i am more of a physique based lifter and not strength based. but as we all know one comes with the other!

looks good, i'd almost say that you might be overexaggerating the lockout, which may lead to spinal injury later on down the road when you hit 500+, but its really not that bad

Edit: After watching that vid again I think you are good

thanks JW. cmanuel, dont be afraid to let me know anything... if you think i might be overexagerating then let me know. i'd hate a spinal injury. plus i have degenerative diseases in my familys genetics, so i need to look out anyhow.
