    Critique my Deadlift

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRy61KyQ5qw

    And also on RDLs how wide should my legs be?

    Looks pretty solid.

    I use shoulder width stance for RDLs.

    You need to go heavier for us to give you a good critique.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    I think Eric Cressey and others frown upon hyperextending the back and leaning back like that.

    There are a fair amount of people that really don't like the over pull. A lot of the Finnish Pullers swear by it though.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Weight is the deciding factor in whether your form is good or not. That was entirely too light for you, and for us to properly critique.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    I don't know if it's your shirt and **** picture but it looks like your lower back rounds on the first reps. It doesn't look like your back is flat at all. But I think you need to up the weight so we can really tell.
