For a while now a trainer at my gym has been telling me that I have a bad form deadlifting. According to him I’m pulling most of the weight with my back and when I pull, I pull upwards and not “backwards”. However I don’t seem to get it even with the lower weights which I can easily handle, and he is having hard time to explain me what exactly I should do. He told me that I’m not using my legs enough.
Is it possible that the classic dl is not for me? I’m not that tall about 5’9"-5’10". Is there anything I could do to work on this? Perhaps my hips aren’t that flexible? When I squat I always go deep atg.
Thanks in advance!
PS: I know its hard to give advice on someone’s form without seeing him do the exercise but I still hope someone will be able to help.
