On the lower setting its just below my knee, on the higher setting its at the top part of my knee. Thoughts?
Try standing on 35lb plates. It'll give you a 1in boost so the bar is just under your knee

Just not sure why I can't lose the weight.
Inches off the waist while maintaining the same weight means more muscle less fat.

As for losing weight, you can't outexercise a shitty diet (unless you're micheal phelps)

How is your leg placement when you do this? I find it awkward to start my rackpulls from where my body would be if it were an actual deadlift. Any other way puts awkward stresses on my body so I need to back down the weight quite a bit.

awesome workout today!
3x5 squats 215lbs (shaky on second set but solid on 3rd)
military press tried working set at 75lbs but arched back too much so decided to go down to 70lbs. did 3x5 then went over to do a couple sets of dumbbell shoulder presses cuz i wasn't satisfied with my shoulder workout.
tried rack pulls for the first time today. i filmed a video of it and i don't think i fully locked out.

1x5 135lbs
1x5 205lbs
1x5 225lbs
1x6 245lbs
1x5 275lbs

then did a bunch power cleans.
5x3 80lbs
1x5 95lbs

then did some bench dips gripping dumbbells so my palms were facing each other and elbows could point backwards and foot rested on a box instead of the floor
3 sets to failure

GOOD MORNING FROM CHINA

I should be at the gym right now

And when I get back, the gym is closed for 2 days

So that means I will have taken a full week off

Oh well back at it for the NEW YEAR I guess.

yea this was the first time watching myself do a deadlift and it doesn't look like i'm fully locked out even though i feel like i am

how should i lock out? because my knees are already locked, legs straight. hips are already open.
i see some people squeeze their shoulder blades together at the top of a deadlift. should i be doing that

It feels good when someone compliments your squat.

Good workout, minus the fact that I had very little carbs today.

do not bounce the weight, u might hit it uneven and go the wrong way.
its all about locking it out, squuuze your shoulders

Set up in a power rack with the bar on the pins. The pins should be set to the desired point; just below the knees, just above, or in the mid thigh position. Position yourself against the bar in proper deadlifting position. Your feet should be under your hips, your grip shoulder width, back arched, and hips back to engage the hamstrings. Since the weight is typically heavy, you may use a mixed grip, a hook grip, or use straps to aid in holding the weight.
With your head looking forward, extend through the hips and knees, pulling the weight up and back until lockout. Be sure to pull your shoulders back as you complete the movement.
Return the weight to the pins and repeat.

depends if you're doing parallel or atg, go atg

atg is a bit farther than shoulder width and parallel is more spread than that

feet point around 10-45 degrees your preference, or even not pointing at all if that's more comfortable
