Ive been trying for like half a year to fix my deadlift form but i just cant do it...What i noticed is that the deadlift depends alot on the leverage,if you have short legs and long arms you have a huge advantage.I keep seeing people that say that long arms are a big advantage on deadlift.
Yes its true, if only they are paired with short legs, if you have long arms and long legs they cancel each other advantage.Here is a little drawing i made in paint to show you guys how my body looks.I'm about 6'3, i have the torso of someone who is like 5'10(most guys, even women have longer/wider torso)and the legs and arms of someone who is 6'7.
My femurs are especially very long which makes it a pain in the ass at squats and deads.No matter what form/weight i use for deadlifts i end up with a form like Urbank, and if i do my max i end up exactly with Hickson snap city form.Im also weak off the floor and if i dont have my hips high i cant budge the weight off the ground.Its not about mobility, if i put my ass/hips backwards i cant get it off the floor.
is my setup.This is my strongest position, with hips very high and upper a little rounded.I can get a perfect flat back with hips back yet i wont be able to get it off the floor and if i do il stil end up in 2.
after i get it off the floor, notice my lower back curves and i always end up with my body more and more vertical as i get the weight up.When it reaches knees my body is vertical and i can lockout very fast,like a rack pull.
What can i do?I've seen plenty people under 150lbs that can deadlift 4 plate with straight back and perfect form, yet i cant even deadlift 2 with that form.I keep the back very close to my body, like 2-3 inches before i pull, and it touches my shins/thighs permanently when i pull.
Ive read something on a different forum and found out that people that pull like this have weak hamstring and use the lower back to pull the weight off the floor, yet my lower back is never sore and never was sore from deadlifts (execept the first time i deadlifted)and my hamstring are very sore and shake like hell after i finish deadlifting.This seems hopeless for me, if i cant fix it il just train core and deadlift with arched back, and no i wont pull sumo...
