    Good lift, just that lowerback didn't look too nice for me.

    Maybe it's just because I injured it, but I notice lumbar curving EVERYWHERE these days.

    Ah well, you're still a meanie for getting that 220kg lift so easily. God, it won't be till September before I can really start lifting again.

    cheers :)
    I do that, use the smaller plates + wear my shoes (which are not really suited for deadlifting as they are for running and have a thick base) for my working sets. But since the last lift was a personal best, I decided to ditch the shoes and get taller plates to give me an advantage. :D


    It's true about the lower back and I shall try to avoid it. I only go for maxes every couple of months. Don't worry, September will come back in no time.

    result!

    Yes absolutely! Sorry if my post came across as negative - very easy lift. With a few form improvements you'll add 10% to that no worries. :)

    Nice :) more in the tank tbh, very quick off the floor

    Although yes, the form was pretty horrible :p

    - arse too high on setup
    - your first movement is your back rounding

    Causes:
    Weak legs/hips, hella strong back.

    It's going to take some serious time and effort to correct your form, but as it stands you've got a fairly large injury risk. Go annoyingly light for a while, and stick your arse out more. Before every lift, align your spine first, then drop to depth.

    Sounds like a bad idea to me, I'd stick with the same form all the way through.

    ah don't worry I asked for comments and it was definately welcome.
    I only go for maxes every couple of months anyway, so for a while I shall definately focus on form. I shall add RDL's to my routine, any other hamstring/hips exercise that I should include?
    I suppose changing the setup for my heaviest lift isn't the wisest thing, as I'm not getting used to lifting from that position.

    Exactly, you'll be gutted if you pull something and can't lift for a while.

    Don't forget crushing something.

    It's been over a month for me now and I've only managed to get to 48% of my max deadlift.

    Also Christian I also only did heavy 1rm's every few months, the problem is, what that back rounding it gets stuck into your normal for.
    I wrecked my lower back putting away a 20kg weight plate of all things.

    All it took was a slight bend in the lower back abd BAM!
    There's a vid in the Gym Rats thread of a guy with the same form as you and it instantly wrecked himself. According to his youtube comments he's still in pain daily and it's been months.

    That should be fine, but it's possibly worth taking a look at your squat form in case there is something you can tweak to get some extra carry over.

    Also, I completely agree with Lie about the different plates. Technically it doesn't count as a deadlift if it doesn't start from the right hight.

    ...actually having checked again those bigger plates are possibly the right hight. So in a way, all of your deadlift training is deficit training, which is unusual but not terrible.

    Ok, I'll take a video of my squat next week.
    yes, the 4 plates that are taller are standard height, I usually train with the black ones which are shorter.

    No worries, but you also need to post your bodyweight. Lifts aren't bad at all btw

    Strength is strength.

    No one is going belittle you for weighing more then average, but still lifting far more then the average joe ever could.
