I am having trouble getting the appropriate form for a dead lift.
I have looked at the video from the WBB 1.1 routine and I took video of myself and they do not match up.
What am I not getting?
Here is the link to my video:
Not much of an expert on the dead lift but here is what I believe I am seeing.
you are bouncing the weights up from the floor instead of beginning with a dead weight.
It looks like you are arcing your back.
You are not keeping your spine straight or remaining focused on the lift when you turn your head..
What made you question your form?
One thing you DON'T want to do is turn your head like that while you deadlift.
CycnuS that was light for you. Throwing 135 around most likely wont represent your proper form with an actual working set.
Get something a bit heavier on vid and you should get more purposeful feedback.
BTW your left hand side will be the same as your right..... since you were recorded and all ....
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw
Okay, thanks for the feedback.
I studied the WBB 1.1 Routine video again and will go heavier next time.
I will take a vid and if it does not look right I will post.
Next time you pull again just remember to make your upper back super tight and pinch your shoulder blades together. You want your body so tight that it feels like you have to use the bar to forcefully pull your hips down into place before you pull. But once you put weight on the bar we will be able to see your form a little better.
sorry to hijack this thread,but is it a must to reset at the floor? can it be just a touch and go?
