Default Looking for feedback on my DL form...

All-

Wanted to ask for your help with my deadlift. Attached is a set, was hard to position my phone to get my whole, hopefully this is good enough (goes up to my shoulders).
After watching myself, it looks pretty close to a straight leg DL. If I go any deeper, I feel like I'm doing a squat- with this form, I can really concentrate the movement in the glutes and hams.

Let me know what you think- thanks!

bend your knees stand with your shins pretty much touching the bar...and visualize dragging the bar up your shins...most people have their torso at a 30-40 degree angle to the ground. bend your knees and stick your ass out.

In addition to what I-dub said, take in a big breath & push your stomach out. You weren't doing a conventional deadlift.

Check out Wolf's deficit deadlifts on this page:
http://www.bodybuilding.net/personal...-8540-116.html

His form is looking pretty good. Same principles apply even though he is elevated above the platform.

Wow. Pity said that. I'm embarrassed. I believe that's what you can a Freudian slip. I just can't get my mind off of I-dub...
