Be thankful for any feedback. Thanks.
If it's a lost cause, I'll just continue not deadlifting.
To be honest, I didn't see anything wrong with your lifts....If you haven't found success doing conventional deads, then I'd suggest sticking with the Hex bar.
It will train your quads more but you can use it to refine your technique.
Post a video using a standard barbell, and the forum can better provide guidance.
