i found this article, but i'm too busy at work to read through it right now: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...p_bar_deadlift
Aren't the handles on the trap bar higher than where the barbell is? And the positioning of your hands are different

Your hands are by your side.

Some (at lease all the ones i've seen) have the option to have the handles slightly higher, or at the same level as normal. But yes, the position changes to your sides.

chest sinks a bit at the start. Really think about pinching those scaps and look straight ahead instead of down.

I'm not sure how looking down helps keep your chest straight, it would think its the opposite. By keeping your chin up and looking straight up ahead it puffs out your chest and keeps your upper back up straight and by default should aid in preventing lower bad roundage, which I saw a tiny bit of. I think it could all be corrected with that head looking up and out away from the floor. Nice work at that weight though, it looked easy for you.

Elliot huss?
He has a video where he holds a ruler against the head/upper back/lower back of one of his guys while deadlifting
Told him to look down to keep the spine straight from top to bottom

I originally looked forward before watching that video

Anyway, I think it was a good thing to take the video as it's allowing me to see everything
So I can fix things one by one
I also took vid while backsquatting but the video cut off only two seconds into it

I've been repping with 185 to 225 for deadlift, the most being 3 sets of 8 at 225
on tuesday, I hit 275 for 2 reps, first time attempting anything over 225
Felt good about that
Today was actually kinda difficult at 225 because I didn't sleep enough

Today is back day for me, so I'm going to deadlift my face off. Only problem is I squatted so well 2 days ago on leg day that my legs are ridiculously tight an sore still! I don't know what I'm going to do about this but I may have to call off deadlifting if I can't even get in position.

I squat mondays, deadlift fridays. I find that is pretty much the minimum for me to be recovered enough in the hip flexors / hamstrings etc to get a proper pull without injuring myself

Same here, seems to be just enough time for my legs to rest.

Just an observation but your shoulders look like they are rolled forward way too far.

The video itself is in my progress thread. This screenshot may have been from when I was just doing preparatory grip adjustments, shoulder rolls etc just getting in position, I was focusing on the spine positioning.
