I just finished my 4th cycle of 5/3/1 with Deadlift day this morning. I’m hoping to get some feedback on my form because I noticed that my estimated 1RM really drops from Week 1 to Week 3. On week 1 of this cycle I pulled 9 strong reps at 302lbs (1RM = 393lbs). Today, Week 3, I pulled 2 reps @ 338lbs and failed on the 3rd (1RM = 360lbs).
The first video below is my second work set today (3x302lbs). The second video is my 1+ set (2x338lbs.) I noticed that my hips shoot up a bit at the start of the lift but I wonder if if’s because I’m starting with my hips too low?
Any advice/tips are appreciated!
