Really annoying when I'm at home for winter break and all I get from family are comments on how I shouldn't squat and I'm eating way too much and why do I want to buff up.

I get that a lot too.

My family tries to be supportive of my fitness and lifting interest, but you can easily tell that they're really not. I get comments all the time and they can't understand why I would want to or need to gain weight to become better at lifting.

Holiday is over here now so I moved back to my apartment where I am studying. Feels so good to not have to deal with that sort of stuff.

Hit 335 deadliff, tried to go for 355 but it clearly did not work out. Are there any glaring mistakes you guys see in my form that could be holding me back, or is it simply an issue of not having the strength?

Im thinking maybe hips could be a bit lower to start?

You're weak.

Yeah, I don't even lift.

Just too heavy. You could bend your knees a little more forward to help with your leverage.

It starts to look like a straight leg dl. Have you tried lowering your butt and bending your knees more?

I'm comfortable like this, and it's worked well for me thus far, but I do agree that I might need to try it that way.

Looks almost all lower back though.

When I put my ass lower and knees further out, the movement feels a lot more unnatural, and it's harder to rip it off the floor.

I don't know man... I've never been able to pull conventional right, so I just do sumo.

You mean knees further forward, right?

I used to deadlift like you and that lead to long grindy reps that mostly involved the lower back. I also stalled on the same weight for a long time. Changed some things and immediately put 40 pounds on my DL.

Lower hips - more leg drive

Knees over bar right before the pull - better levearage since hips are closer to the bar

Rotate the shoulders back and down just before the pull, when everything else is tight - makes your shoulders end up over or even behind the bar instead of in front (as it usually does on max attempts). I think of breaking the bar towards me like on bench press.

^Just use more of your quads; much better explanation from concept.

Bought some Dowins for my nephew, squatting with him tomorrow hopefully he likes them.
