    Yes, most definitely need to pull your chest up more and set your back harder. There was a video posted on the site recently about a good cue for helping people set their backs better in the deadlift, basically think about dropping your belly between your thighs. I forget the exact title but you should be able to find it easily.

    Also you must use chalk. The more positive grip provides more confidence during the lift and may cut down on the endless fidgeting you're doing with your hands. Just set up, grip it, set your back and go. Don't stand up between reps, you lose all tightness that you've built up and you end up doing singles instead of a set of five.

    Why do you have those small plates on the floor in front of the bar? You see how the plates hit the one on your right after each rep? Totally throws off the bar position. Get rid of them.

    Thanks for the pointers. Iíll pull chest up more and set my back harder, use chalk, and not stand up between reps and also find a more level spot to deadlift.

    I would also recommend finding a gym were people don't make whatever that sound is in the background, but if you can't, I get it.
