(excuse the scream at the end, I was happy :P). First meet and that was PR of 212.5kg (~470lbs).
I think off the bat my issues are that I yank the bar off the ground which is likely to be the reason my hips shoot up and I stiff-leg it too much. However, when I do try pull the slack out and have more “picture perfect” form the speed is just terrible. I know a PR will always be a bit ugly but this happens at 85%+ weights, say, so definitely something that occurs a lot in training too.
Anyone have any thoughts on some of the issues there? Including what I think is the main one (yanking). I’m gonna start trying to really focus on taking the slack out and using legs a little more. It’s weird because my squat is relatively strong compared to deadlift and I’d assume I would try to use more legs but I keep shooting hips up and stiff-legging a lot of my deadlifts.
