    Deadlift form check

    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?

    Good way to check form ... thought you might have had a physical problem.

    I hope some folks that are very experienced check out your video for you.

    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 ....

    That's too light to give you any meaningful kind of feedback.

    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.

    Thanks again!

    I agree! If you want to keep your form, then I would suggest reseting after each rep. IMO, I feel your form breaks down when you bang out the reps like that, at least for me it does.

    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.

    You can do it however you want to, but IMO it's alot safer to reset after each rep. If you can control the weight during a T&G and keep form and not put your self in harms way then do it. It's alot harder to reset after each rep, but IMO it will make you stronger.
