    Deadlift PR with video

    I still have issues with my form. I have no idea why I insist on keeping my head down after I check my grip and when I start to pull. I do know though that my lower back is straight, even though my upper back is not ( which shortens the pull ).

    Here's the clip of my 475# deadlift PR. I felt like I had another 40 pounds in me, but my body was finished after this one so I listened to it and stopped.

    congratz on the pr man! form looked pretty good. All I see is that you're bringing your hips early then mostly using your lower back to get the weight up. Other than that awesome!

    Good work!

    You are locking your legs way too soon.

    Nice video. The gym I hit up on friday nights has those stupid plates that you are using. Those things have a habit of rolling back into your shins!

    Thanks for the advice. I'll work on it. Any advice on how to accomplish that? Right now, I think I pull like that so my shins/knees are out of the way so I don't constantly bang/scrap them. ( if you look closely, my right sock is bloody in that video. The blood doesn't bother me, but it affects my lift mentally. )

    The other night, I had a dream ( OK I know I've been bitten by the iron bug now that I'm dreaming about powerlifting ), and I was pulling sumo. Maybe that's the answer. But when I first started pulling, I felt like I lost all my power ( what little there was back then ) by pulling sumo, but after working squats so hard lately, maybe that's changed. I think next time I do deads I'm going to try sumo.

    Good grief, you carry that weight very well my friend

    I think you've already hit on the problem, the bar is too far in front of you. Bloody shins are sweet!!
