Yes you have to bend your knees

Go download the trial ebook version of starting strength, it has most of the dead lift chapter

Thanks to Jim I think? Suggested to stand on a plate when deadlifting. Boy - It was a different workout, I was sweating bullets.

Good mix up that's for sure (for the shorter people that is, with the increase in range of motion)

But after i do hips out and i bring the bar as low as i can, its still a little above my knee do i bend it even though its not past my knees? I thought that was bad for your knees

yeah. you want to bend the knees when the bar is past it.
Don't want to be busting those knee caps.

Seems like you have flexibility problems - I'd work on that.

I have the opposite, longer torso than legs.

Try doing squat stretches ass to ground - while focusing on neutral lumbar and head up.

Wish I could help further, I hope the other guys can offer more suggestions.

I would say get a foam roller or a tennis ball or lacrosse ball and roll out your hamstrings. It sounds like you have tight hamstrings

I don't quite understand. Are you saying you are so short, your knees are BELOW the bar?

no no, i meant when you bring the bar down after you lockout, i can only bring the bar above my knee, any further and my back rounds =/

I was wondering what stretches help me able to bring the bar under my knee

You'll have to bend over more. Don't round your back, but do use a sharper angle. Remember, don't wear shoes during DL

Here I took these screenshots from the ebook. First, different starting positions depending on body type:



Note the guy at the bottom right has a really long torso compared to the guy on the left, so has to bend down further. However everything is still aligned - shoulder blades, bar, middle of foot. If you have this body type, DLing is much harder (hence why everyone has their own potential and that matters more than numbers)

This simplifies it more:



Good book IMO, worth the $10 even if you are more concerned with looking pretty than being strong and awesome

I find it last 5hrs before the effects are gone and I am crashing. I usually take it about 4 or 430 and hit the gym. I want to buy some now just for those days when I am feeling really sluggish.

Power finally came back on at Commonwealth Tuesday after losing power Sunday at 1030am. It was closed all day yesterday as there was some complications with getting the power back on. Went at 6am to do legs/back/abs and it was really busy! Light volume for legs because I am starting half marathon training this week.

yeah i usually go to the gym at 7am and go to work after and makes me feel awake at work, regardless though, i fuckin feel awesome this morning.

Was at 240pounds about a yr and a half back with a no carb diet. Jumped off as i was at 170 and only started doin carbs on my lifting days. Still lost 4pounds last week even on carbs. Although im mainly focusing on strength now, still feels damn good. I feel like i can really control my metabolism now.

i think the figure that's most toward the right is more correct since when you're going heavy your back will have a tendency to round for the other two positions, or at least for me

you have to find that sweet spot where you're using your hamstrings, glutes, and lower back together to pull the weight back and not rely just on your back or just on your legs to get it up... i usually have it around at a 20 degree bend in my knees

Your ass should be as far back as you can and your nose as far out as it can be. You will be maximux stretch from your hammies.

You could alternatively use 25 lb weights instead. That also increases the range of motion in deadlifts for shorter guys.
