I pulled 200kg (440lb) on Friday, and although I was happy I felt my form was off. Looking at the video and previous PR videos of myself this tends to happen (I do conventional deads):
- I start my pull with quad/hip position similar to a half squat
- The weight doesn’t budge off the ground until my hips raise to making the knee angle similar to a quarter squat. This causes greater bending at the hips.
Ideally I’d like to keep a more upright posture but am wondering if this is just the way my body lifts due to my leverages?
Here’s a vid of me doing 200kg 6 months ago, I’ll try to upload the new one soon - it’s side on and better quality.
I have a meet in 8 weeks, trying to qualify for nationals
