Are my hips too low during the set up? I was told to keep the weight in your heels and drive with your heel into the ground. But when I do that, I tend to keep my hips lower. 


 

You look too relaxed. You should have a tight as fuck posterior chain with flexed lats when you begin.

Also, don't look up. Tuck your chin and try to keep it neutral.

Sorry, meant to say look straight ahead. He was looking down so I said look up, relative to where he was looking.

Kunk, I could have sworn you'd said you used cell tech before on here....

What are your big 3 stats?

@Barrel
I think it looks pretty good. Yeah, you need to get tighter.

I also think you should let the knees get further over the bar. The leverages will improve of you can get your hips closer to the bar. Knees just a bit more forward will also let your lower back straighten and put more emphasis on leg drive, instead of low back.

Back angle and hip height looks good to me.

Thanks! You konw, the deadlift has become my favorite but most hated workouts! I love it because it's a beautiful movement but I hate it because there are so many steps you have to get it down to a T before you can start making progress...I wish I had started DLing waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay earlier and stopped doing stupid bench press and biceps curls...

 

Get knees over the bar more...Got it! 

 

I was deadlifitng with my neighbor tonight and he told me it's very very important just to let your arms hang by your sides and not to bring any tension in your upper back and rear shoulders area because sympathetic muscle tension will radiate down to your middle and lower back. Which will then cause to put more strain on your back.

 

I've taken a few videos when I was doing DL and I've noticed I tend to flex my Infraspinatus(?) when I'm fatigued. Is that a common problem? Are there any ways to fix this? Please excuse the sloppy form where I'm not performing the lift in one motion, the high head tilt, rounded back, and other errors...:embar:  I was pretty fatigued at that point...But no excuses!

 

 

Oh also, I'm noticed I start driving my knees first before the hips extension...Is that improper? I mean this guy teaches it in two steps...I'm actually a bit confused. Please shed some light on this. Thanks!

There's some mental cues to think about, but generally I think deadlifts is the least technical lift. My trainer just say "bend down and pick it up".
Some important steps:

- hip or shoulder wide stance
- Deep breath: push out abs and lower back
- bend down at knees and hips so the knees are over the bar, hips close to the bar but still low enough to get leg drive
- grip width just outside legs, but wide enough so you don't get stuck on your quads
- the front if the shoulders should be in front of the bar before you pull: I was tought by the weightlifting and powerlifting coaches at my gym that this gets a much stronger initial pull to the knee
- straighten the arms and press the shoulders back and down into their back "pocket": thisactivates the lats and stabilizes the spine in a straight position
- create tension and pull out the slack of the bar
- don't yank it up as fast as you can if it makes you lose position (it does for me). "Speed" in the lifts is only good if you already have rock solid technique, or you'll just train improper movement patterns which results of the excessive focus on lifting it fast. Lifting heavy is about force production, not being as fast as possible. Powerlifting is a "slow" sport.
