    Can you elaborate on the "slow down" part?

    It's just that. Slow down and work on your form. Break at the knees and hips at the same time and shove your knees out. Stop throwing your ass back.

    I don't know what function speed has in terms of strength, but until you have a solid form, don't go so fast.

    If you watch the initial pull off of the floor in you side-view deadlift video, you'll see that you're losing back angle (your back is becoming more horizontal) as your hips rise. Your hips and shoulders should rise at about the same rate near the bottom. Try starting the deadlift with your hips an inch or so higher.

    I just looked at your deadlifts.

    Your ass is rising before the bar, that's not good.

    On the descent, you're bending your knees too soon, causing the bar to travel around the knees. Preferably the bar should come down straight.

    Your stance looks too wide.

    Hey, I've been working on things a bit, no new video, but one other question. Do you think if I widened my stance/foot angle it could help stop me from sitting back so excessively?

    If your knees don't go forward in the first 1/3 of the descent, they will do so on the last 2/3 because they have to do so eventually. It's quite simple actually.
