Thanks guys, I'll try again. I need more work on form than I thought.

Z00 just make sure you get this form down, no one wants to see you get hurt.

In doing heavy front squats yesterday my form deteriorated on the last rep on each of my last two sets, I was pitching forward much line you do. I could feel a pull in my upper back as my body was trying to compensate for this, it wasn't anything serious or painful but just a reminder that improper form can lead to injury.

how often do you DL?
once a month? twice a month?
it's going to take some time and effort

i was doing okay but i wanted to improve my form
i deadlifted for FOUR weeks (2-3 times per week) with just 135lbs until i was sure that i had corrected my form
then i broke through the previous PR with ease and got much stronger

the way you have been describing your deadlift and squat form in the videos ... you either just don't know what is proper form and/or you have a grossly distorted view of yourself

I think it's a little bit of both.

When I'm not traveling for work I DL once a week. Squat twice a week (FS and BS).

My form seems to be a hit or miss. I have asked three guys at my gym about DL form, one of them is a CF trainer. Their feedback was "your form is good but don't raise hips too fast and don't look in the mirror". I tend to rush when I'm videotaping myself.

Mentally I know what proper form is, but executing it correctly is a different story. MaybeI should drive down to where Leezy works out, buy him a beer and a sandwich. He'll fix my form in no time.

I don't think joining CF sessions at my gym will help with my form, trainers seem clueless.

That cf trainer is exactly right. He's saying what we are.

How to fix it? I had the guy tell me on 315lbs my form is great, nothing to fix. I tend to do better with one rep at a time with DL (each set is 1 rep). The problem is that I don't have this correct form all the time especially not when I'm videotaping myself.

You need to concentrate, bad form can lead to some serious injuries.

Ok, I'll keep working on it. I'm determined to get it right. Going to vacation at the end of the week so won't get to DL till I get back.

If mentally, you feel doing single reps gives you the best results (form wise), then that is what you should be doing. 8-10 sets of heavy singles is a legit DL workout. Albeit, time consuming...

It's often said to master a movement it takes 10,000 repetitions to become second nature. Problem is, if those 10,000 reps are slightly off it'll take 10,000 more to fix.

It late October I decided I wanted to master the sumo deadlift. So from November to March (16 weeks) I was pulling 3x/week. Everything else took a backseat. Inefficient? Stupid? Silly? Sure... But it's just something I wanted to do for myself. As for results, I didn't add much scale weight, but my shirts/pants/boxers all became much too tight. And I added a few lbs (40) to my 3 rep max.

You have to be patient off the floor. I tell everyone this. Lift with the legs first. Once that bar starts coming off the floor then you stand it up.

If I get it off the floor and past my ankles I know 100% it's coming up

only a few times did I think I was going to get stuck on the way up. On 405 last week I knew that sh1t was coming up though.

You're right, I tend to rush things and not take my time. I'll keep trying.

I'm gonna keeping trying until it becomes second nature. I have long legs, I don't think sumo DL would work well for my body type. I wanna learn sumo DL as well once I master the conventional DL.

I respect your attitude to try. I wish I could get you over here and fix you in like 2 minutes.

Stick with what you're comfortable with until you're good at it. I also have long legs and arms. Sumo works great for me though. Although, it's more of a pseudo sumo DL. In between a conventional and traditional sumo style DL.

Back from vacation. Had two nice workouts plus an hour long yoga (kicked my butt with some crazy poses). Surprisingly the resort's gym was great. DBs go up to 90lbs, many machines, and a pull-up bar.

Went scuba diving and it was the most amazing experience I have had in a while. I want to get open water certification.

A pic after a week of not working out much and lots of eating and sleeping. I gained some fat. Gotta get leaner. Better start sprinting again. But Diesel shorts still look sexy on me lol
