Form Check/Tips on Deadlift

I think my form is decent and it feels good. I seem to have most trouble lift it from floor. It feels lot easier once it gets in air. I also get 60lbs more from sumo compared normal. Maybe there is somekind muscle inbalance? Well any tip appreciated. Got in my channel also sideview.

if the floor is the sticking point, then you should consider adding some deads from deficit, because that will help you the crush whatever dead you pull.

you can simple pull a normal dead, or sumo, using lower weight than you normally would, while standing on any type of platform, even a few plates(even though that would not be my first choice of platform).

you could consider belting up too because you have a solid foundation

I never actually tryed belt and there is none in gym. I could buy it and test. I need +100lbs to reach for my goal.

I don’t know what kind platform I could build myself. There is not much tools in my gym and even floor is 100% carpet.

platform was a bit official wasn’t it? Lemme give you some inspiration

Just don’t do whatever she’s doing…

if you have never used a belt before, then, the belt alone (safely) could add prob 40 lbs to your lift, if not more. I wouldn’t make it a substitute but perhaps add-in once you’ve gone through your first 4-6(arbitrary) sets.

One way to pull from a deficit is to simply load up with 25 or 35 lbs. plates rather than 45s. You can get still pretty heavy that way and pull from a deficit without having to build a platform. Or you can just stand on plates.

Most people are slow off the floor with sumo. This isn’t unusual. Deficit deadlifts are fine, but based on what you said, it doesn’t sound like there’s a real problem or imbalance.

As for the sumo vs conventional question, some people are better at one, some are better at the other. It’s rare for someone to be equally strong with both lifts.

Don’t tell him to belt up you twat… Let him keep lifting wthout one, beltless benefits far outweigh belted.

Most would disagree with a statement as general as this. Every tool has a use. I’ve certainly gotten stronger with the addition of a belt in deadlift training.

Aren’t you wearing a belt in your squat video anyway? You obviously feel there is some benefit to training with a belt.

I do not feel as though you have had enough success to be able to express this sentiment.

I concur with flipcollar’s above statement. The belt is a very effective tool, and using it allows one to grow stronger.

You need to keep learning and stop spouting off with ignorance.
