Convetional DL Form Check on Tall Athlete


#1

hello coach
could you check my deadlift form ?

i am tall 1.98
i pull normally sumo but i change to convetional for your complete powerlook
what do you recommend for the hips position ?
my thought is this is the right position from my height
i pull with lower hips position some weeks ago but when i was going to pull my hips position changes to higher , so i used the higher hips position

this is a video from today 5x6 from your powerlook program

cues that i used is

squeeze the bar , and flex triceps back and chest , pull my self to the bar
flex the quads and hams , chest up , push the floor away

and a video with sumo dl from the past if you want to check and that

sorry for my english its not so good :slight_smile:

I’ll give you some feedback later on, but if you are more comfortable pulling sumo, use the sumo deadlift the program will be more effective that way.

thanks coach !

i am pulling now convetional because its a weakness for me to boost up the sumo

for example before start your program my sumo was something like 110-120kg
and convetional 85kg
after the 1st month of powerlook convetional 5x6 @80% felt so good and easy !
