A huge request.

Hey guys,

I know this is asking a lot, but here goes.

Would any of you guys that really know how to deadlift (Goldberg, Heavythrower) consider posting a series of potos that show the start, center, and finish of the lift.

Now, before everbody flames me. I have done a search, and read some great training articles. I just want to make sure I get the proper form down. I work out at home, and except for my son, almost always alone.

Thanks

Hi:

I?m in a similar situation to Scott.

I downloaded the video at bsu.edu.
Is the form on the video ok? I read everywhere about the arched back but this guy rounds it a little.

If i do them this way they kill my back (in a good sense). If have
my back arched i need to squat real low (almost a full squat) and i feel like doing a weird squat with the weight in my hands (and they kill my quads).

Any idea?

Just an interesting side note...the weight room in the pictures is where I lift at during the school year and I know the guys that are pictured doing almost all of the lifts. One of them is even my coach.

CoolCoJ-

Your sumo dead PR is only 135? Man, I know you clean more than that. Your dead should be much higher.
