The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    The ascent looks pretty solid -- good arch, chest out, etc. On the descent it looks like your knees are getting in the way of bringing the bar down to the ground, something needs to be corrected there, I believe.

    You got the right idea but your form is still off. I agree with Kastro. Read SS. By looking at the vid you can easily keep your chin up higher and eyes focused higher as well. This will help give you better form until your used to it.

    Here is new video after re-reading SS. How does it look?
    Also - I'm confused. Im also learning power cleans which the first part of are deadlifts basically. But in the powerclean the knee comes back a little, bar raises above knee then the knee jutts out again slightly over bar. But it says nothing about this for Deadlifts.

    Power Cleans and Deadlifts are two different movements.

    Look for videos of "Koklyaev" on Youtube - he has very good technique on the deadlift and power clean (former olympic lifter).

    Your form is fine. You're officially overthinking this now. Focus on getting stronger and maintaining the form you have with heavier weight.

    I'm pretty sure that if you really focused on keeping your chest up and pinching your shoulder blades together, you'll HAVE to lower your butt to begin the rep. I think that'll give you a better arch in the starting position.

    SS = Starting Strength. Read the Sticky at the top, it will tell you all you need to know.

    I need chalk. I need chalk. I need chalk.
    I struggled to hang onto the bar for some of these reps. Will get chalk asap. But please, how did my form hold up now that Iím starting to throw some more weight on the bar.

    These are fine. You definitely don't look like you're 'locking out' at the top though in the later reps, as opposed to the first rep.

    Ok cool, thanks for reply. Probably the only reason I wasnt locking out was because of grip nothing else, hopefully chalk will fix this.

    If you are using the deadlift as more of a generalized size and strength movement I suggest you involve your quads to a greater degree. What you are doing is very close to a stiff legged deadlift with very little quad drive. Other than that your form looks fine (perhaps keep the weight a touch closer to your shins).

    It looks like you are taking a deep breath when you are hunched over. I imagine that makes it pretty tough to push out on the belly. Take a deep breath and push out on your stomach before getting your butt down.

    Get your damned butt down and stop thinking so much. For the most part you are fine. Try to sit back and drive through your heels.
