Well the football offseason has begun, and so has morning lifts. After 2 weeks of getting back into the swing of things, I’ve really begun to move up in weight again.
Well on my last set of three on deadlift, at my highest weight, my form seems to go to shit. I’ve been told I have perfect form (with lighter weights) but who hasnt. Technically I deadlift sumo style, but with a little narrower of a stance due to some hip and hamstring issues. The stance a little wider than shoulder width apart, with my hands and arms inside my legs. The stance has really seemed to work for me, until I get to higher weights.
On the first lift, I really focus on dropping my ass, so my back stays out of the equation. but no matter what i do, my first lift results in my back rounding, and my legs doing little work. Once I have it up, the next two reps are perfect form, due to momentum.
Most people I talk to say this happens to them too, but no one seems to know how to correct it.
if anyone has any imput id really appretiate it. I’ve looked all over but nothing seems to offer much help.
