jesus reps of 20
God...didn't realize how ugly my deadlift form was until I had a friend record it from the side
Gonna drop the weight over the next few weeks and really work on form. Sheesh that's ugly.
Dude I've never seen anything that bad. I'm not sure I could get into that position if I tried. Drop the weight WAY down and work on form. You're going to pop a disk out moving like that.
Ha yep, I know it's quite ugly. Gonna drop the weight down to no more than 225 for the next couple weeks and then work my way back up.
It's amazing how difficult(impossible) it is to judge your form looking in a mirror.
Yeah let's see a video at 225.
You really should consider going into orthopedics....you're going to need the expertise to help out with your future surgeries.
Guess it's hard when there's a lot of money to be made out of confusing people.
Repped out @ 250 on the chest machine for one set. Next set, couldn't even lift 200. Had to go down to 175. That was a new one.
Anyone had strain in the front of their delt doing back rows? What is that?
For those of you that deadlift, do you scrape your knees doing so?
I get a slight scrape when doing high reps, but the biggest thing for me is a bruise right above my knees.
That bruise right above the knees is pretty typical with cleans, but shouldn't happen when you are deadlifting. It's indicative of a slight re-bend.
As far as scraping knees, this also shouldn't happen if you are doing it right. Proper DL technique has you keeping your torso at the same angle until the bar travels above the knee, then increasing then opening up the hip. If you are scraping your knees, it's probably because you are opening up the hip angle/changing your torso angle too early. Focus on keeping your shoulders directly above the bar until the bar is above your knees. This should help.
Now, scraping shins is another problem, and is inevitable if you are deadlifting properly.
I love that whatever ad network is at play here thinks that viewers of this thread may find a free week's membership at Curves interesting.
Doug...pretty sure they're focused on you and all your hip talk....
ads aren't done by thread, they are done by person...
not sure what that says about you
