in other news, here is a video of my 405 DL, I hope the technique is better than TKJTG: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10100517610566268&comment_id=8929330&notif_t=video_comment
I think my technique usually would be a bit better but I rushed my setup because the guy was filming.
get your back into neutral

I had sweet potatoes with marshmallows Sunday night. I hate it when they add those. Why ruin a great veggie like that. Of course I made sure none of the marshmallows made it to my plate.

Double post.

I did yoga at a Bikram Studio this morning for the first time. So much different from the Vinyasa hot yoga that I'm used to doing back home. I did the poses fine, but the difference in the whole process really surprised me. It was quite a workout, too. Planning to return tomorrow.

That's what happens when most people deadlift anywhere near weights that are heavy for them.

Maybe, but what's the point? Deadlifting is a back exercise BECAUSE it's so difficult to hold a neutral spine throughout the lift. These are the muscles you are trying to get stronger by deadlifting. If they aren't engaged during the lift, you won't get them stronger. Also you'll fuck up you spine. 

 

That said I didn't think your form was THAT bad. Not the worst we've seen on here for sure.

I think form is important but I read this article on t-nation that makes a case for rounded backs during max effort pulls. That said, it really only applies to competition lifting because why would you risk injury to up your poundage if you're just hanging around the gym.

That article also distinguishes between upper back and lower back, if I recall...

im by no means anything close to an expert on the dl or pl in general as it's not really my interest, but dont all the greats pull with a neutral lower back and rounded upper? with the former of these being by far the more important thing.

former (and current) weightlifters almost never let their upper backs round at all but that's more due to the way you break the bar off the floor in the classic lifts, the backs gotta be tight or otherwise positioning will be bad.
post #23848 of 48965
I don't really care what the articles says or not but you will always have a bunch of whiners about back rounding. Mostly from guys who deadlift less than you.

I don't like to discuss about it in depth anymore. My only question is usually "how much do you pull?"
post #23849 of 48965
A lot of people who compete pull with a neutral and solid spine. If you watch that super training TV video posted a while back all those guys are pulling with a solid spine. On Eason's video his lumbar is curved as hell before he even touches the bar, and when he starts his pull it's the first thing that moves up / breaks.

Yes, I understand that. But I think you missed my point. Most of those guys wouldn't even bring that up to begin with.

I find a curved back is fine as long as you start that way and don't curve more as you pull - keeping tight throughout the whole lift.
