    I'm wondering if my DL technique needs a re-vamp... Any insights appreciated.

    My DL progresses slower than Squat. I definitely prefer the squat to the DL...

    Bar is too far in front of you and hips start too low.

    Watch this: YouTube

    And implement those 5 steps in your set up.

    Deadlift: You are messing up the setup a bit. Very briefly, you have it right, but then the bar gets pushed forward and then you lower your hips too much. Also, set the bar down faster when you're done. Try narrowing your stance a little bit.

    Squat: The video angle isn't great. Lower the hooks a notch. Make yourself tighter.

    Where do you train?
