    Still struggling with deadlifts. Working on gaining weight. I feel as though the belt is helping. Thoughts and tips?

    Eat more and your deadlift will go up. A LOT more. You arenít doing the program until you fix your eating habits.

    And stop leaning back at the top. Stand tall.

    He said he was working on gaining weight indicating he understands the importance.


    You need to keep your back flat and tight. Keep your chest up at the set up. It may help to think about dropping your belly between your thighs during the set up (without moving your hips or shoulders).

    You're getting loose in your back.

    Andrew is correct about the back. In the future, please link previous form checks to a new one so we can see what we've already hollered at you about. I believe I may have mentioned "getting the slack out of the bar" as you set the back previously.

    The back is the main thing that I struggle with. It seems like it begins to round around the third yep. Thoughts? Thanks for the feedback!

    If you hadn't stopped to play with your clothes, the set would have been over sooner. How much weight have you gained in the past month?

    Not as much as I should; I'm working on that. I am going to try not to stop during my next set.

    "Not as much as I should" is not a number.

    About a pound. Don't yell at me.

    You're not even trying. Why worry about your technique? Just have fun with the weights.
