Well Start with your ass down, shoulder backward as far as possible and keep your lower straight ! Not comfortable but that’s the way it is and you’re going to be stronger that way too.
I don’t know the deal with a belt but before the lift, air in belly, set your back/shoulder/butt and pull.
I can’t see other thing but hey I’m not an expert. Ask meat ! :
He’s the man, can’t go wrong.
Why would he start with his ass ‘down’ and shoulders before the bar? He’s not going to lift shit until his shoulders are past the bar, and his ass raises to a certain height, anyway.[/quote]
Look at the video if he would have set his shoulder backward his back would have been more straight, leg and butt set and the bar would have been closer too him making a better use of his strength.
Shoulder back, ass down are only tricks/reminders to get a tight form on your lift.
Maybe I’m explaining it real bad (Frenchies here) but hey I won’t debate on how to deadlift.
