Re: Another Deadlift critique

You are pulling that weight pretty easily, so it doesn't look very heavy for you.

Your form is fine.

Re: Another Deadlift critique

You are obviously an incredibly strong dude. Looks alright, but I think the hips are rising just a tad too fast. Go back and look at the video and go slow motion. You want to see that back angle stay the same until the bar reaches the knees. I don't think you're in any danger or anything, but your already strong lift could maybe even be a little stronger.

Re: Another Deadlift critique

You start your hips a bit low in your set position, and before you pull they rise to a more normal height. Either stay tight and use that movement to pull the bar, or just start your hips a bit higher and then stay tight and pull. Remember to keep your back angle until the bar gets to your knees.

And I agree that you dominated that weight, with all respect, hopefully you don't think that's your 3RM.

Re: Another Deadlift critique

Form is good on the first lift but your wieght gets more forward on two and three. Look at your shoulders compared to the bar. You should reset and have that feeling of falling backwards on all your lifts. Just take the time to get reset between each rep. A couple of seconds btw each rep is not going to kill you.

Re: Another Deadlift critique

First, you are an incredibly strong dude. And your form is off in a couple of very big ways. I'm guessing if you fix the flaws you have a few more pounds you can add to the bar. 500 may be in reach for you.

Hips are too low. Like others said you need to be sitting back more. Adjust hips back and up or down until you feel tension in the hammies, glutes etc. Look for the deadlift video of Dave Tate comparing the two between powerlifting and oly lift/clean deadlift.

If you create tension properly before initiating the lift, you will fix the more glaring issue: your hips are rising before you actually lift. On your new max lift it looked like your hips were shooting up ~4 inches before the bar ever left the ground.

It looks like this is also resulting in a slight loss of lordosis. Of course on a max effort it's to be expected, though not a good thing.
Push the ground away, don't pull the bar up.

Re: Another Deadlift critique

To add to Derek's comments,

The bar is getting a bit far from your body. At one point, I stopped the vid and it looked as though the bar was a good 4" away from you legs. That's a bit much - and could be what is causing your hips to rise sooner than your shoulders. 2" or less would be idea. Ideally when pulling the bar should be as close to the body as possible without causing friction to slow it down.

Great work. Keep it up.

All the best,
Arden

Re: Another Deadlift critique

You're right Arden. The bar is several inches away. It's actually incredible our OP is closing in on a 500 lb pull with all that's going on.

I'm nearly certain if these things get fixed 500 would come without too much strain. Well, as strain free as 500 can be.
