    Okay I see it, thanks!

    It looks to me that you pushed the bar forward of the middle of your foot in your setup. Instead of touching your shins to the bar right away, try reaching down to the bar to take your grip without bending your legs, and THEN bring your shins forward to touch the bar. Because the bar moved forward, your hips started too low. See how your hips shoot up before the bar breaks the ground when you start your pull? Keeping the bar over the middle of the foot and bringing your shins to the bar should put your hips in the right position to start pulling. Also, try pulling the slack out of the bar before you actually begin your pull, that should eliminate some of the jerk you're having on the bar when you start each pull.

    Also, are those bumper plates or is your gym okay with you destroying their floor?

    Great. Thanks.
    THose are bumper plates. The platform is pretty worn and causes the loaded bar to roll around prior to setup, which is why I moved to the floor.

    Read the 5 step deadlift process. Do those things. You're grabbing the bar with bent knees and dropping your hips which pushes the bar forward. Your hips shoot up first before the weight comes off the floor. Your hips need to be higher. Doing the 5 step deadlift to a T will solve your problems.
