So I started focusing on powerlifting training around six months ago and am really enjoying it. I herniated a disk around two years ago and am in a good place with it now but I have still tried to focus less on polishing my ego and focused on form and improving my technique.
Which brings me to my question: I think my deadlift form is pretty good, my issue, however, is when it comes to performing multiple reps (e.g sets of 3 for speed). I find that when I pull, my legs shoot up a little and my back is almost vertical (but still nice and flat), this isn’t an issue for me when performing one rep or on multiple reps when I reset quickly in-between. However, when performing speed sets on the down section of the lift I pretty much go into a stiff-leg deadlift and really struggle to drop my hips back down to my original starting position without losing tightness and speed. Does this signify a certain muscle weakness or mobility issue, or should I just reset and power up again? Any help would be appreciated.
FYI: I am 6ft 5, 105KG (may contain puppy fat), I do have a hip mobility issue I am working on.
