Some of you may remember my post on sumo vs conventional. Well i m back doing conventional and have a few questions about form. In Rippetoe’s Starting Strength the focus seems to be on deadlifting with an arch in the lower back. There is a contradiction on page 117 where he says ‘Lumbar hyperextension’ is undesirable. I’m confused as to me there is extension or rounding of the lower back there’s no in between.
Most videos of top deadlifters they don’t seem to be extending the lower back at all. Any help or advice please.
p.s. I do realize there is a difference between athletic deadlifting and powerlifting deadlifting. i just want the biggest back possible and will do whichever style works.
