So here's my issue.Whenever I lift, i have a very hard time keeping any sort of arch, or even a neutral spine in my back. Its pretty tough for me to get any sort of arch on the bench press. When i deadlift, im decent at getting a good setup, But when i start the lift my knees lockout to early, back rounds, and i end up using a lot of lower back to finish the lift. Same deal on squats, I lean forward to much as i Lift. Makes my butt rise up before the bar, turning into damn near a good morning.
Im on the Naval Academy Powerlifting team, and fixing this issue would really help my numbers. Multiple guys have told me thats what i need to fix, but i havent gotten any real advice on how to get better at keeping that straight back (Besides a recommendation to do a lot of dumbbell rows).
Any tips or advice is greatly appreciated.
