    Default Round Back Deadlifting

    Is it considered good form for intermediate/advanced lifters to deadlift with a round back with bar on the shins?
    Should be people discouraged from the round back deadlift?
    I will post a form video to check if my technique is acceptable

    Lumbar - no.

    Thoracic - early intermediates, no. Late intermediates and advanced lifters, the lifter has earned the right to do a cost-benefit analysis and decide for him or herself. However, the ability to perform a pull with the thoracic spine in extension is still a useful one, even if your heaviest pulls will be done with some (rigidly held) thoracic flexion. It's needed for cleans and snatches, and probably trains the musculature up there a little harder as well (holding a longer moment in extension vs a shorter one in flexion).
