    You ramped two and a half of these reps.

    Where's your chalk?

    Chalk is on my hands. Not sure what your other comment means

    He means you're "hitching": the bar clears your knees before they extend.

    This is related to your main issue, which is that your back is coming out of extension immediately once you begin the pull. A little flexion as the set goes on is not the worst thing, but you don't get a single rep off the floor with an extended back. If the weight is too heavy for your back to stay in extension, we should see you fighting, but we don't: you set your back, then IMMEDIATELY flex it. Try HARDER.

    Indeed, Maybach; but hitching is a series of ramps. The rest is right on. I usually go for the grip first because in my own experience, slipping can lead to relaxing the back. Also, and I may be too picky, but I just donít see any chalk. Even with a mixed grip, you need it.

    Completely agree otherwise. He got to 395, so it may not per se be a technique problem. O.P., whatís your deadlifting schedule look like?

    your back rounds right before liftoff. it's very visible in the video. i suggest lowering weight till you can manage a set of 5 with lumbar extension and rebuild from there.
