    This was from a few months ago. Form hasn't changed much.

    Main question: Is the thoracic rounding a problem? I cannot seem to keep it straighter, even with 135 I still see some rounding but I "feel" tight and flat. I am not sensitive so go ahead and blast away. I can take it, DL is def my worst lift.

    Your lower back isn't rounding too much, the upper back is just rounding a little under the load. If you're not trying as hard as possible to keep your back set, try harder. If you are, add five pounds and it'll work itself out.

    So Ill go out on a limb here, because my wife also has a bit of natural thoracic rounding. Its there even when shes standing. I see lumbar extension here. Id say youre good with the back set.
