Hey guys, I need a deadlift form check.
This is my top set, 150kg for 6 reps:
It’s max effort so I understand it’s normal for form to degrade slightly… but does my back curve too much, especially by rep 5 and 6?
Here’s a screenshot of rep 1:
Straight back. Looks fine to me.
And here’s rep 6:
I’m definitely rounded on the last rep but is it within an acceptable range?
Tbh it feels messy when I’m doing it but in the video it doesn’t look so bad to me. I did my research and it seems like a very slight round is ok… but I’m not sure on mine.
I don’t have any pain during or after the lift, other than the burn in my lower back muscles from the lift itself. It doesn’t feel like bad pain. Just the pain of heavy lifting. So it doesn’t seem to be causing issues atm.
I’m not sure how to stop curving it on the last couple of reps. I’m just getting tired and losing power.
Open to any points or cues on how to fix it.
Is there anything I can do to stop curving it even on the last few reps?
What about my head? I think I need to turn it down so it lines up with back. Working on that.
Also, am I resting too long between sets? I’ll usually pause to take a few breaths before going again. It gets kinda long by the end of the set. Not sure if that’s a major issue or not.
Thanks for any help you can offer
