Apparently my back is "scary bent" when I deadlift, which really makes me wonder about my form. I have no idea. I've been pulling the same way for a few years and haven't felt any pain.

Anyone run into something like this? I only train alone so I have no idea.

yea u should try to keep u back at straight as possible, i hurt my back in the beginning of the year kuz of bad form. Snapped my back up so bad that i couldn't lift for a month. Now when I do deadlifts, if i feel the my back is curving more then its supposed to then i just drop the bar because its not worth snapping my back again.

When I pull 2 plates my form is fine, but I don't feel anything.
When I pull 3 plates, my back gets bent but it actually feels like a lift. I know I won't get injured because I've been doing it like this for quite some time, but I would like to correct it.

It seems like its going to be a bit of a challenge to correct my form while increasing weight. I want to be able to lift heavier without compromising form.

Feel like a noob all over again.

i dont deadlift that often anymore but what i did when i was starting deads since im tall as fuck i started with like stacked boxes or w/e on both sides so it was set up allot higher, then every week or so i would take a lvl off, until i reached the ground. so by the end i was lifting from the ground

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Yknow what's really fun is changing a flat on a slammed car after doing heavy deads and squats the day before. Even more fun if it's like -2 outside, and it's a friday night, and you worked a double shift.

Holidays are killing me. Had a Christmas lunch/dinner 5 meals in a row now.

Tried deadlifting 345 between a lunch and a dinner today. Got it up once, realized how bloated I was feeling, left the gym

Strong believer of using straps for deadlifting. I'm trying to train my back, not my grip. Doing 350 now, without straps I don't even wanna know..probably like 275 lol

nearly $40 PER sleeve

if anyones interested in these, we can split shipping
http://www.jackalsgym.com/store.aspx?prod_id=RH-KS

it'd be $87.90 + $13.40 (originally 26.80)

I had the same thing happen to me. A 'trainer' at my old gym told me my back was full round when I DL so I had someone video me and it was pretty flat. I posted it here too.

Even when I bend over with no weights and force a crazy arch in my back, its still almost completely flat, maybe a tad rounded. Thicker back muscles also give the impression of a rounded back from the side so youd have to look right at the spine.


My personal opinion is it isn't so much having a flat back, its about having all of your back muscles holding tight. The problem comes when you're lifting heavier than your lower back muscles can hold and your back rounds out and is basically behind held by your spine. As long as your back muscles are holding your posture tight, I think that is acceptable.

Yup in the end I think the best solution is to post a video here or somewhere else where people know what to look for, rather than rely on some dudebro at the gym

yes i do, get them if you want your knees to be hot, if doing bodybuilding don't think it may be as helpful because you'd have a pump anyways

on deadlifts, rounding lower back is where the problem is
