New PR 415lb deadlift. I've only been deadlifting for 3-4 months now so I'm not sure how my form is. Am I doing it right? Any suggestions?

try to bend your legs more in the start you are pretty high on the start, that will help you use more legs and less back

Certainly doesnt hurt that the two guys that own the gym are powerlifters. Its nice to work out at a place that caters to weightlifters as opposed to the "fitness centers" that I worked out at before.

good weight, but some ideas, your hips are MUCH to high at the start and your basically doing a stiff leg dead, also dont jerk the bar up like that you can pull something. sit back more and drive the weight up through your heals and lean back hard.

I have so much fear when I do ME snatches, cleans etc. in my gym. I never run into the owner to talk about bumper plates.

Fix your form and I'll bet you'd be good for another 10-20lbs at least over your current max.

Remember:

Deep breath
Hips down
Head Up (look high)
Don't jerk off the floor
Weight on your heels
Keep the bar close to your legs
Hips forward (clench ass cheeks) once bar is above the knees
Lock the knees
Done

Do those things and you'll be golden - an probably good for 430lbs, at least.

415lbs after 3-4 months of DL'ing is very impressive, good job man

Your back looked pretty rounded. But strong pull nonetheless. You must be a natural deadlifter.
