Thank you so much for the input, guys. This is so helpful. Lifting in my basement, there is nobody around to give me any feedback. I didn't deadlift today, but just lifted a couple times using light weight and dropping my hips back. I feel the difference. Next time I dead, I'll post another video to see if I corrected things.
About the shoes - yeah, I'd love to compete, but I realize I'm not even close to that level. 3 sets of 10 at 305, with bad form... I don't know what my 1RM is, but would want to correct my form before attempting that. I'm 192LBS.... what kind of weights do people put up in competition at that weight class?
Thanks again for humoring me. It was my first post, and I appreciate the help. I like the forum, and hope to contribute, rather than just post questions. So thanks again. I appreciate your time in helping me out.
