    Andrew, revisit the 5 step setup bud. You need to get the bar over the mid foot, so that you can fix your hip position and then fix setting your back. Attaching the link for the 5 step setup. Hope this helps.

    Hi Andrew,

    Aspiring SSC here...

    A few things:

    1- Get the bar aligned over your mid foot. It's too far forward. As a result your hips are too low in the start position. Get the bar aligned correctly and that should help.
    2- You need to get far tighter before you pull. You're loose in your set up + trying to jerk these off the ground.
    3- Your hips are coming up too fast and your knees are straight before the bar reaches knee level.
    The End Result of 1-3 = A lot of extra movement that doesn't contribute to the bar moving upward.
    4- You're letting your air out at the top of each rep. Don't do that. Keep your breath held until the bar is back on the ground, THEN get your next big breath.

    Review the 5 step set up in the blue book and think of "pushing the floor away" with your feet while holding everything else as tight as possible. The start of a deadlift should be tight and uncomfortable. The more uncomfortable you are at the start, the better.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm missing several things, apparently. I'll rework the technique and post again in future. I appreciate the help!

    Just remember to check the placement of the bar over the foot from the side. Not by leaning forward.

    Round 2 - I threw in a squat form check, just for fun.

    Deadlift - 270. First rep was bad breathing at the top, trying to break that habit.



    Squat - 245 - 3rd set of 5

    Yeah these are better, except for wearing jeans like a psychopath. Anyway, point your toes out a little more, stop jerking the weight off the floor, and be mindful of dropping your butt between reps, as this makes you hit the bar with your shins and the bar rolls forward of the mid foot.. other than that, marked improvement.

    You think the jeans might have something to do with the knees caving in?

    Hey Andrew,

    Greg's right. Deadlifts are better. As he stated get your toes out a little more. That will make setting your back easier.

    On your Deadlift: You don't set your back every rep. But these are much improved. You're still extending your knees a little bit ahead of your hips which is why your hips move up 1st before the bar does. The knees and hips should start extending together as you initiate the pull.

    On your Squat: You're descending too fast and dropping too deep into the bottom. This forces you to bounce off of your knees as opposed to bouncing off of your hips. 3rd rep you drop fast and forward which is why your weight gets pitched out on to your toes. Slow it down, cut your depth off a little bit and bounce off of the tension you create in your hips and groin by resisting the weight of the bar on the way down. This should also help with keeping your knees out at the bottom. That and having your brain tell them to stay out the entire time.

    Haven't seen someone train in jeans for awhile. But if it works for you, go for it!

    Much improved.

    Thanks for all of the coaching - on Deadlifts, Squats, and attire choices.

    But seriously, thanks!
