I read the crossfit article and will stick by my later state. The rear of the shoulder would be directly overhead. Not the joing, but the rear by looking at the body. Excellent article and I've nearly read the entire thign from front to back.

That would imply arm bend ... which we agree we don't want to happen. It's a deadlift, not a row.I don't think he shoudl be rowing either.
That's cool. But I bet I could increase your max deadlift by 10% or more within 15 minutes of showing you this starting position.However, I personally don't think his shoulders should go in front of the bar. They should be even, but not in front.
Goes to show you, you can always learn something. Lookin forward to hittin up deads this saturday.
Complication breeds desperation.
I've taken the advice of others and decided to perform deadlifts on a leg day, as opposed to doing it on an arm day. Also, once a week sounds like a good plan until I get used to it. And I'm glad that someone mentioned that you pull up with your 'arms as hooks', as that further illustrates that it's not an arm exercise.
Yeah I tried that yesterday and I could rep 205 5x5 with not much problems as compared to last week when I got back into the gym 135 was a problem for me!
