How far down in the hole are you supposed to go. I literally went down as far as i could. Is this bad? Should by hamstrings completely touch my calves?
I’d really like to know peoples opinion on this as i am going low enough that my hamstrings can touch my calfs,
with deadlifts is it your whole body feeling like its giving out?
The hamstring calf thing was for the squats.
This is my deadlift position.
I try to have the scapula over the bar but i think i’m too forward. Looking now, it seems my knee angle is way too large, and my hip angle is too small.
This is stuff that “reading and posting on the internet” won’t help me with.
Also, in that pic, i am trying to have the most natural curve possible. I am actually trying to curve my back inwards but you can still see my lower back popping out like crazy.
Are those the plates you usually lift with? They look smaller than the 45 pound plates you would normally have on the bar, which means that your bar would be closer to the ground, which in turn means that you have to bend over more. Finding larger plates or doing some kind of rack pull may be helpful to you.
You do seem to be too far forward to me. One thing that helps me is the be sure to keep my weight on the heels and to focus on pulling backwards as much as am pulling up.
Just my two cents.[/quote]
No they arent. It’s just some i have at home. The weight there is 128 pounds.
I use the normal plates you’d find in any gym.
Thanks, ill try to pull more up and back.
