Did I technically lock that out? Looking at the vid, I didn't seem to drive my chest forward upon reaching the top. It's not that I couldn't (I don't think at least), I sort of just forgot to. Anyway though... if it doesn't suffice I'll just make my next 1RM attempt (415 probably) even better.

You were locked out, but you don't need to over-exaggerate the lean back like you did. You simply need to stand straight up with your shoulders back and legs completely straight. I've seen guys get red lighted at meets because they lean back like that and re-bend the knees and thus aren't considered fully locked out because their knees aren't straight.

Yeah, the knees looked bent at the end there. Don't lean back so much. Good power.

Thanks everyone for the comments! I'll definitely try not to lean back so much next time. I didn't even realize I was doing so until I watched the video later :ninja:

Deaaaaam you hit 405!!! Great pull, dude! Congrats, it's a great feeling, huh?! You definitely locked it out, but like others have mentioned, no need for the hyper extension. Your weak point seems exactly like mine - off the floor!

Nice work man.

Awesome!!!! Did you do that without chalk too?

I agree-- 405 is definitely a good Deadlift at 161. You've been making some amazing progress over the past few months.

great lift, btw. your form of the ground was extremely impressive.
