Thread: Deadlift form is terrible,

  1. #1

    Default Deadlift form is terrible,

    My form is absolute crap. Right now I can blunder through a set of 5 at 280 lbs. What I'm thinking I am going to do is break out the book, drop my weight by at least 50% and start working my way back up only when I'm completing sets of 5 with acceptable form. Any advice is appreciated. As near as I figure my cardinal sin is a rounded back mid-lift.

    May we see it. There's not much that can be said without a video.

    Video of form is a work in progress, I had my roommate film it, and the video to say the least looks like two blobs getting it on :/

    So do another set and film it again.

    While you think your form might be really egregious, it might not be all that bad. Basically, you may not need to do a 50% reset - it depends on what could be improved. It is tough to say without being able to see. You might be able to drop 50lbs and reset, maybe none.
