    You're breathing is off. Take a huge breath, like you would if you were going to dive to the bottom of a pool and stay there for awhile, at the bottom of the deadlift before you pull. Once you've taken this breath, that's when you tighten everything up and then begin the pull. Don't let the air out until the bar is back on the ground. This will help you with fixing your back extension in place. Use the bar to help set yourself.

    Watch how you bump the bar forward just before you pull? Don't let that happen. I think you could also work on driving your knees out a little bit more.

    As with your squats, these are actually pretty solid lifts.

    Thanks so much. I will watch those videos and l work things tomorrow.

    I really appreciate your help.

    I am working without a coach or training partner so just working through it on my own.

    Glad to help. For going it on your own (like most of us did/have/are doing), you're form is pretty good. It's a hassle sometimes, but I find that filming and watching all my sets helps a lot.

    If you travel any, it is worth the time to try and set up an in person coaching session. There are a number of coaches in Atlanta.

    In the meantime, take advantage of this part of the forum and the Coaches Q&A.

    I have a session set up with Alex at Atlanta Barbell in November.

    Thanks again for the help.

    This is causing the bar to drift away from your legs on some reps, making them harder. Following Jeff's advice should fix that though!

    Here's my work set from today. I feel like reps 1-3 look pretty ok but 4 is not so good and 5 is pretty bad. My question - is it bad enough to repeat this weight next work out? Or do I go up and continue to work on technique? Or back off some and make sure each rep is perfect?
