    hi,
    Good day to all of the wonderfull Starting Strentch Coaches! You guys definately rock!

    Here's my video:
    Form Check Deadlift 140kg - YouTube

    I hope i got the camera angle right this time. :-)

    I follow everything...I think:

    Walk to bar
    Bar placement, midfoot
    Then I narrow my grip, narrow my stance...because I think my previous stance and grip are kinda too wide.
    Chest up,
    Belly to the floor, back extended...I think. :-)
    Big breathe, pull, back still rounded, is it now?
    Any advice will be definately appreciated.

    Thank You,

    Raymond

    Dear wonderful coaches,

    Good day!

    This is my yesterday Deadlift session:

    My work set is 140kg x 5 reps.

    This is my video:

    Form Check Deadlift 140kg x5 - YouTube

    I hope I am getting the right camera angle.

    I did the set up:
    1. Bar placement: Midfoot
    2. Grip the bar
    3. Knees to the bar
    4. Set the back, Chest Up, Big Breadth
    5. Drag the bar

    But I know that I am doing something wrong, but I have no idea. Please help. Your advice will be appreciated.

    Thank You,
    Raymond

    I'm no coach, and others will see more, but,
    you aren't setting your lower back, lumbar, at all,
    search here for superman pose, and or tuck your belly back between your thighs before the lift

    Agree with Neil. You're lifting your chest but not enough. It should be uncomfortable before you start the pull. Lifting the chest should set the back all the way to the lumbar.

    Also it appears you might be a little too close to the bar when setting up.

    Yes, main thing to work on here is setting your back. Fixing a Rounded Low Back in the Deadlift with Nick Delgadillo - YouTube
