Deadlift Torque?

Since this didn’t happen when I was in my 20’s…

I am starting out with feet even, but by the time I’m locked out, my left arm is about two inches further forward than my right. And everything appears tight and straight up. I do notice more strain on the right paraspinals, but technique doesn’t matter (sumo, hybrid, normal).

What happens when you switch grips? What happens when you use very light weight, or even an empty bar?

Is the quad mass of your left leg the same size as that of your right leg?

…no expert, just some thoughts

I suggest posting a video.

Agreed with Punnyguy, if you have a mixed grip, that can easy cause rotation.
