There’s a lot to go through w this thread for suggestions. you obviously know what shit form looks like, and mentioned that your RDL and GM look rough too.
A few things here.
To have a more optimal deadlift, ya you need stronger legs. but that doesn’t mean shit if you cannot maintain good position in your torso.
your entire core is falling apart. I’m betting that you have both problems of, general weakness in the erectors and the other core muscles, as well as something pulling on the hip structures that causes the tilt.
The first good thing to point out is that you can get into position without issue, so it’s not a capsular issue as mentioned before.
How does your squat form look in comparison? RDL weight? GM weight? trap bar deadlifts wt? glute bridge wt? how much and how heavy is your other core work?
Hows your stretching regime look? How do you perform or feel different in your problem areas after stretching hard?[/quote]
My squat is pretty good (relatively speaking I guess lol). Knees don’t cave in and push out the entire time, lower back doesn’t tuck under, upperback stays tight 80% of the time. My main issue in the squat is sometimesmy hips shoot up first, but thats greatly been reduced as Ive been working on my technique. Also I have a hell of a time remembering to push my stomach out the entire time, I’ll do it than forget to redo it on rep work. Also tight unracks are another hit or miss.
RDL weight - Best I can remember was 255 for 6 reps? But there was another 4 in the tank
Goodmornings - Been a solid 6 months since I’ve done any because I hate the way it feels on my back (really hits my lower back hard in a not so great way)
But my Records were
275 x 1 suspended from chains at a height were if I hung my hands down theyd be right where they would be if I deadlifted
265 x 1 free weight in briefs
165-185 x 3? raw
Usually yoke bar x 20
Trap Bar dead - Record is 495 x 1 but this turned into being uglier than my conventional dead! total stiff legged it, and catbacked it up. Good form? Maybe 275 for a solid triple. Don’t do these because I feel its to easy to fall into my shitty dead form.
Glute bridge - best set was 155 x 10. Don’t do these because I dont feel it hitting the glutes at all. I really have to have my toes angled out to feel these without my hips feeling locked up
Core - Yikes I don’t do nearly enough of this. I haven’t trained it in atleast 3 months. I have to force myself to do this more. No joke
I haven’t stretched in a long time either. I really am terrible when it comes down to the small stuff and I have a feeling it’s been making the biggest difference.
I do notice when I am able to roll a baseball on my glutes that they are beyond tender. When I roll those I usually feel pretty damn good but I can’t roll them. I am a type 1 diabetic and always have an insulin site in 1 side so I feel like it’d do more harm then good if I only rolled 1 glute before training.
For the record my hamstrings are very tight. I can feel them stretch by just arching my back hard.
