    Hit 4 plates, yay! Ryan told me ive been pulling from my heels, which i tried to correct with limited success. I think the setup was better. I locked out this time. Shoulve pushed harder for that last rep.

    These look better in terms of the balance being on your mid foot. You're running into some issues with setup consistency during the set, though. Note how in the first rep you get your setup, then pause, then set your back. In the later reps your setup is never fully locked into place and squeezing starts to happen. This causes various things like your hips moving, the bar moving forward, etc. Try and keep the setup distinct from the squeeze/back flattening.

    Heres my latest set. I think i did better with keeping it over the middle of my foot, but could use more improvement on some of the later reps.

    Much better overall. 3rd rep swung away a bit as did the last rep, which is likely why you missed it. Note wearing lifting shoes for the DL pitches you forward a bit and those that use them need to rock back off of their toes a bit more than they think they do at the beginning of each rep in order to stay balanced. This is especially important the heavier the bar gets, so I think at this point you need to practice this diligently or switch to barefoot.

    Lowered the weight, practicing form especially starting with my knees in my elbow pits. Switched grip halfway through, it was very humid and my hands were slipping.

    Hips are starting a bit too low in the setup, thus the bar is a bit in front of mid foot.

    Put the bar more over midfoot this time. Are my hips too low again?
