    Does this qualify as lower back rounding? The weight doesn’t feel heavy at all. I set my back and right as the pull starts, my lower back looks like as if it rounded

    This weight is 10 pounds lighter than my 3 sets of 5 squat, no issues with back at all during the squat, so I suspect it's something I'm doing wrong when the weights get even a little heavy.

    Your big issue is the set up. See the plates rolling back and forth while the weights on the ground? Watch the barbell logic deadlift video on youtube, and DO NOT move the bar.

    You’re saying that’s what’s causing the “dip” in the low back at the start of the pull? The bar never left contact with my legs through the whole movement though

    Glad you got your question answered... I hesitate to give advice on issues i'm not sure about. I usually defer to what the SSCs post haha
