    Deadlift Vid (updated 2/4/09)

    Haven't done deads consistently in over a year. I pulled some lower back muscles doing deads in May of 07. Everytime I start them back up my back goes back into fits. I have worked hard the last few months on fixing my muscle imbalances (lower abs and hips). I would like to start doing deads again. I never really did conventional deads, but I am using them more as a back exercise, so wanted to do convo instead of sumo. Feels like forever ago that I pulled 500...please share any form issues. Sorry it takes about 30 seconds before the first pull..

    Actually it looks pretty darn good CP! Nice work. Only thing I noticed is you are up on your toes a lot, but I think that is more a result of the Saucony's. They have a pretty built up heel. Use some flat soled shoes if you have them, otherwise just deadlift in your socks

    I agree on that point. I normally do them barefoot. Didn't today since the weight was pretty light. Thanks Travis.

    Any thoughts about keeping the reps low for awhile? Instead of a set of 8, what about 8 singles or 4 doubles? My back always had the biggest issue with resetting between reps. I agree with Travis though. Those looked pretty smooth.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Chubs - I'm going to give DC training a shot. He calls for higher reps. I know Will had the same thoughts as you. Keep it on the lower rep range.

    I agree with Travis about the shoes. Switch to flat sole or go barefoot. Other than that they looked solid!

    Looked fine to me, but im no pro. I have been squating and deadlifting for about 4-5 months now without shoes ( socks only ) and I prefer it over wearing shoes. Good luck on the DC training.

    Thanks Chris. I'll post up some more when I start pushing the weight a bit. I'll make sure the shoes come off.

    Thanks. For deads it's normally chucks or barefoot. I was just rushing a bit yesterday.

    Here is an updated vid. 295*8. I know the straps will draw the ire of the pl'ers. Any comments on form? I was expecting 4-6, but it was lighter than expected. Will move back up to 3 wheels next time.

    I guessing the form was good, looked good to me anyway. You made it look easy and seem to be really working on your form. My back just happens to be killing me today though.

    One thing I noticed from the first video to this one is how you are lowering the weight down. The first video its more one motion, the new video you lower the weight down with your upper body once the barebell gets about knee height you start dropping your legs more then. Again im no expert, but over all your form is very good, this could also be just to the fact that your deadlifting alot more weight then the first video.

    You have some good bodybuilder deadlift form. Very slow and controlled, engaging all the right muscles. I think this is exactly what you are going for, so I say bump the weight and do exactly what you've been doing.

    When it's time to SFW, then I can give you my tips.


    PS- I have a big problem with the guy doing the overhead squats. WTF is that garbage? How do you do OH squats with an empty bar and cut them 4" above parallel? Weird.

    Bill: Thanks man. Trying to keep the form tight so I don't reinjure my lower back.

    Joey: Thanks dude.

    View 1: Yeah I wasn't as tight on the way down. Good catch. I would probably benefit from just dropping the weight and not wasting energy on the way down.

    CR: Thanks Chris. I am slowing adding more weight to the bar. I'll throw up some more vids in the future as it gets heavier to make sure I'm not getting sloppy. I had my tunnel vision on. I didn't even notice that guy during my set.

    Very nice CP! I agree with CR, your form is spot on for what you're trying to do. One of the hard parts about those hexagonal plates is that you can't pull the bar closer to you right before you start, so just make sure you have the bar close to your shins, but in the video it looked great to me.

    Sometimes it seems to me that when guys are doing reps, their hips slowly get higher and higher at the beginning of each rep, but yours look like they are positioned pretty good.

    Chris! Haven't you heard, its a new fed! Johnny Soreback got sick and tired of the politics involved in all of these federations making people put the bar on their back so he started the OSF (Overhead Squat Federation) The OSF doesn't feel that it makes much of a difference if you go deep or not and would prefer to give the benefit of the doubt to the lifter. Other events in the OSF would include the Bosa Ball Deadlift, Behind the back wrist curl, and the calf raise.

    Both of those sets looked good to me. Is that baby powder or chalk you are putting on your shins in the first video?

    Updated with today's work set. 315*8. I am slowly adding weight to the bar. Hope to get back up to work sets with 405+ on the bar in the medium term. This weight felt light, but I am wary of pushing too high too fast.

    Painzer: thanks man.

    Jorge: Thanks. I put on about 10-15 lbs in the 4th quarter of 08. I hope to see similar results over the next 3 months.

    Looks good CP. You definitely have plenty of strength left. Does this program have you pulling once every week?
