Your stance looks a bit wide IMO. Have you tried a narrower stance before? If you haven't, jump in the air and note how your feet land. That is a good stance to pull for most people.

Besides that and the short lockout, looks good!

Yeah like everyone said, make sure you flex your glutes and legs at the top of the movement.

And is that SportCentral? I just started my membership there a month ago and hoping to meet some other fellow Revscene members

Finally hit 315 on squats. Tried to get that second rep but failed...first time I ever failed on a rep for squats. Feels weird/good man.

Binsentow, since the deadlift is a sagittal movement, it would probably be best to get a recording of the lift from the side.

People are saying you need to lock out on your deadlift, but thats all hypothetical until we can actually see what the lift looks like from the side. For all i know, it could be the tilt of the camera to cause people to suspect a problem with the lockout position.

Jus for future reference

315 for one on squats!, great f'in job.
I'm even more surprised you only did 315 DL last week. Think you can do way more if you really push yourself in that area.

I'll deff try more next time. I was hesitant to go for it, cause I know my form would be fucked and I'd be running the risk of potentially injuring myself.

Maybe go for 335 next week?

That leads me to this question. When you guys go for a 1rm on deadlifts, when do you guys "give up?" I heard once you feel your back start to arch, that's when you should let go

i'd throw on a belt for 1rm
i give up as soon as i feel like my back is rounded like shit and i just drop it instead of trying to force it up

Honestly, you just know. Especially being able to do 3 plates now, you will know your limitations and just drop it.

If you feel everything in your body letting go, especially the lower back - then of course it's foolish to keep trying, because by then your form will be shit and the only part that would be pulling it up would be the lower back.

But you'll know. Stick to the Instincts.


If I was you, I'd slap on a 5 first, then determine if 2.5 is good or go for 10

There has been 1 or 2 occasions when my lower back really rounded during a pull. Trust me, if that happens you will know to give up. It didn't hurt, knock on wood, but I just felt so powerless/vulnerable in that position, I knew I couldn't budge the bar a mm more.

As for the upper back rounding... well that happens to almost everyone when you get to 85-90%+ of your max. I keep pulling. I think pulling with a rounded upper back is ok in moderation. I just wouldn't train that way regularly. It's tempting though, most people can pull a LOT more with a rounded thoracic spine.

Ps. "arch" means your back is in extension which is how you want your back to be. What you don't want is your back being rounded (in flexion).

Not necessarily. My deadlift is garbage. It's on par with my squat...maybe even a bit weaker

Same here. I just started doing DL about 6 weeks ago, once a week.
My squats I started about the same time, but I do them 3 times a week.

My friend cant keep his back "straight". Even just standing there and trying to straighten his back, he has it rounded. Ive told him to try to do few sets of "straightening his back" every day.
Is there any way he can fix that?
Doesnt seem safe for him to do squats/dl/rows with me.
