When I start a set of deadlifts, I feel like I have to pull with my lower back and slightly lose the tight back arch to get the first rep off the ground. The remaining reps are less so, but I'm just curious if this is bad form.
Look at the video in the Texas Method Sticky. You should be trying to keep that arch, any time you lose it you lose leverage and put yourself at risk for injury.
Cool I might roll the weight back a bit and try to push my chest out more. Watched the videos about pulling off the floor in the sticky... thanks.
yeah, push your chest out and pull ur lats down, also pull yourself into position with your hip flexors this will stretch the glutes and hammies to help initate the drive, and pull back on the weight, doing this has helped me keep a good arch and get good drive

As Corey said... squeeze the weight up.
