    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Think I'm rounding my back again because my back aches after deadlifting today. Ugh

    @conceptionist there's a lot of similarity in what you're saying and the 1st pull of a clean. are you coached by weightlifters by any chance?

    The guy who gave the advice was a great weightlifter many years ago, and now coaches his son who is a world record bench presser.

    Listening to my barber talk about how overhead presses and squats are bad. Though he said he used to bench 300... So I guess that's impressive.

    I know some people who squats actually are bad for (quarter squatters, those guys who aren't tight at all and grip the bar right out at the collar) . But yeah, in general that's just dumb.

    Squatting or pressing without good instruction is probably bad for most people. Instinct is to be loose, cave knees, keep feet parallel, come up on toes.

    Thanks! I'm going to try to digest this and apply this to my DLs.

    So, when you bend down over the bar, your knees are going to be over your toes?

    Nothing intrinsically wrong with holding the bar at the collars. I suppose for small inexperienced guys it would be idiotic

    @conceptionist Thanks for all the advices! I've actually cut and pasted all your advices in a word file so I can review it before I go to bed every night!

    Am I too late to the party? 16.25, lost about 0.25 after I stopped doing curls.

    I don't see how you could stay tight when you're just resting your limp rest on the collar of the bar.

    You see a lot of the 308+ lifters doing it. Probably don't have good enough mobility to get any tighter and if they're big enough they don't need to try that hard to make a shelf.

    Oh, thanks. I hope it helps you get a PR :)

    About the knees going forward:

    This is taken from an article in a Swedish lifting magazine. Its written by my coach who has the national deadlift record.
    [​IMG]

    Look at the picture to the bottom left: Knäposition, Knee Position.

    His position in the left example is what you want.
    See how knee tracks forward so the shins are brought to the bar, not the other way around. It results in a more upright torso (= less back strain) and his hips are closer to the bar (= better leverage), than in the right example where his shins are vertical. The right example is unfortunately often tought in online deadlift tutorials. Its a worse style for the vast majority.
