    Coach;

    I've got a tendency to drop hips and get in my heels as a deadlift set progresses, especially at near-limit. At the end of this post is a link to a set of 4 deadlifts. The set was AMRAP, with a minimum of 4, but I really wanted 5. I decided to hold rep 4 and abandon rep 5 because: Reps 1 thru 3 were 2-3 seconds, but rep 4 was a 4.5 second grind that took the wind right out of me.

    What I think I'm seeing in the inefficient 4th rep is low-hips and heel-rock.

    Confirm or deny? Additional cues to help?

    Many thanks.

    The linked video post also includes a press triple; just swipe right to see the deadlifts in question.

    Video at Geoffrey Bischoff on Instagram: “Arizona Method week 3: 3s week. Press: 212.5x3 (3PR!). Deadlift: 455x4 (4PR!). Today was tough. God lent me strength to get thru. SDG…”

    No DL vid, only press.

    And where was God on the 5th rep LOL?

    There is definitely some low hips and some heel-rock. I'd recommend that you try to be more efficient with the movement. Slow down a bit, get your shins to the bar on each rep, set your back ( i really like the "push your belly between your thighs" cue), take a deep breath and hold then push the floor away. You're not getting much help from your legs right now.

    DL vid is present in that post if you click the right arrow that shows in the screen of the press set.

    God was standing over my shoulder after rep 4, saying, "Nah mate. You should pack it in."

    Watch the number "45" on the plate. See how it moves as you break the floor? What does that tell you?

    You're strong, keep it up man

    This made me laugh out loud, so probably we're all due for Confession or something.

    Just from reading Geoff's log and watching his lifts, I'm pretty sure Chuck Norris wears Geoff Bischoff pajamas.

    Sorry, that probably should have been Superman instead of Chuck Norris, but hopefully you get the idea. :-)
