    Form check

    I just want some feedback on my deadlift form. This is my final set of 5 of 240lbs which is a good amount of weight for me since I'm just getting back into deadlifting. I hope the view is good enough to see how I am set up and if I keep good form throughout the set.



    Thanks guys!

    Like he said, that angle is terrible. A side angle is better for deadlifts. From what I can see, it looks like you don't even really attempt to arch your back when you are setting up.

    There's a lot wrong, including the gloves. Get a better angle and we can give more useful advice.

    haha, i found the gloves in a box in the weight room and decided to use them because it was killing my hands. yeah yeah, i have soft hands. I will put up another video next week from the side, but does it honestly look that bad? Maybe I need to arch my lower back more, but I keep my back straight the entire time. I go slow on the descent because I'm not a fan of dropping the weight and I like to set up before each rep.

    The descent looks off. I believe putting the weight down should almost be like performing the lift in reverse. What you're doing is your first move is to bend at the knees instead of bending over at the waist/hips. You want to reverse this.
