Hey all,

Ive been doing dead lift mostly like this for all my training, i know its not optimal cause i'm not going very low with my legs for the start of the pull. it know its meant to be lower so its like 50/50 legs and back but i think i'm more 20/80 legs and back,

Is there anything wrong with? say all that is needed lol

Looks pretty good, I'm not sure why you think you need to drop your hips lower.

Looks a lot like how I deadlift, I use more of my back than my legs. I've tried not letting my hips go up so fast and using more legs but it feels terrible. I think it's just the way I'm designed to pull.

Nice lift.

I didn't know you were in Tasmania. The gravity is less down there I swear :) Good lift! Are you going to compete in the IPA or CAPO?

Thanks All, means plenty coming from this site lol

The only reason i had a little bit of doubt was because this big giant Olympic lifter at my gym always hounds me to use my legs and if i don't ill never get a big deadlift, like "bring you yours legs to parallel and use your legs more i always tell you"

from Dave Tate's article, Dead Zone (http://www.tmuscle.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/the_dead_zone)

"Mistake #10: Starting with the hips too low

This is the king of all mistakes I see. Too many times lifters try to squat the weight up rather than pull the weight. Think back to the number of times you've seen a big deadlift and thought to yourself how much more the lifter could've pulled if he didn't damn near stiff-leg it. I see it all the time. Someone will say, "Did you see his deadlift?" Then the other guy will comment, "Yeah, and he stiff-legged the thing." Am I telling you to stiff leg all your deadlifts? No, not at all.

All I want you to do is look at your hip position at the start of the lift when you pull and watch how much your hips move up before the weight begins to break the floor. This is wasted movement and does nothing except wear you out before the pull. The closer you can keep your hips to the bar when you pull, the better the leverages are going to be.

Once again, next time you see a great deadlifter, stand off to the side and watch how close his or her hips stay to the bar throughout the pull. If you're putting your ass to the floor before you pull, your hips are about a mile from the bar. You're setting yourself up for disaster when the lever arm is this long. This is also the second reason why lifters can't get the bar off the floor. (The first reason is very simple: The bar is too heavy!)

You need to find the perfect spot where your hips are close to the bar, your shoulders are behind the bar, your lower back is arched, your upper back rounded, your belly full of air, and you can pull toward your body. Nobody ever said it was going to be easy, but then again, what is? (Definitely not training in a commercial health club….)"

I'm not sure but I think with the olympic lifts, you are supposed to start with the hips lower. Again I could be wrong, I know very little about olympic lifting, but I could be right. I've watched Hossein Rezazadeh snatch and clean a couple of times, and he starts very low, (ass to the floor), then his hips shoot up and the lift starts, but it happens so quickly, I can't tell whether the lift starts with his hips low or whether his hips first rise and then the lifts start. Whatever, that could be the reason the bloke at your gym told you to "get your hips down" but remember, the deadlift is a deadlift, not the initial pull of a snatch or a clean and jerk. Very different technique used. Anyone more knowledgeable on oly lifting want to chip in and correct me, feel free. The other thing is its a deadlift, not a squat. Look at bolton, magnusson or konstantinov pull. None of them pull with thighs parallel to floor. Hope this helps.

Haha thanks I love hearing that :) ...it will shoot up if you keep at it, I go in cycles of high and low reps about every 2 - 3 months, 10 being high and 5 being low
