Keep the bar closer to your body. Spread your feet out a bit. I think your feet are too narrow which is why you may be having too vertical of a back. Remember: hips and knees lockout at the same time. IF one is faster and more eager than the other: SLOW DOWN.

I was just saying there was no explanation there, lol. If I know the one you're speaking of I think it's an excellent explanation

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I don't know how many its set for, whatever the default it. I looked through alot of posts to try and find it, the link I posted was the closest I came to finding it.

Maybe its not an explanation lol. I meant it was a good description of how to setup for a deadlift. Whatever, you know what I mean

I.E. if one element is comprimised then your aren't in ideal position but if each element are in place within the limitations set by the other elements you are pretty much there. After that a little bit of wiggle while keeping the glutes engaged and putting some tension on the bar and you should feel it when it locks into place. It's hard to explain to someone without showing them in person...

I didn't see it either....yep, that's the one I was thinking of.

It is really hard to explain to people. But you should know once you find it expecially if you then make a mistake and use an improper setup.

The other day I was having a very good deadlift session and as I was doing a double, on the second rep all of a sudden it felt about 40 pounds heavier. For some reason, I have this sort of snapshot in my head of how I do things...I'm not always concious of it but I can sort of hit "rewind". I realize that my shoulders had been behind the bar and my butt was way too low. That's all it took for an easy lift to turn into a hard one.

LOL I copied and pasted that quote from the post I linked to earlier. No wonder I was so confused when you said there was no explanation.

Ok, here's another set. It "feels" better (the movement isn't as loose), getting the glutes to fire, but it feels heavier than when I was doing the close-to-straightleg sets. Maybe because that was just hams and this adds more glutes in?
