I don't bend over per say while Deadlifting. I just used the term generically meaning bent at the waist.
I'd say my back position while Deadlifting is similar to when Squatting. Being a rookie, I probably should seek technique advise on both. Maybe I'll make a video and sent the link to you. I don't trust anyone at my gym to know anything about Squat and Deadlift technique.
If you know of any videos of perfect technique, could you point me to them? I could search myself, but I wouldn't know if what I was watching is acceptable or wrong.
