    ROM was good, form sucked. Looked like a Rounded-Back Good Morning there at the end.

    Ya that much ROM through me off a bit. That kind of depth was real hard on the hips more than anything.

    All I will say is my core is surprisingly strong. 645 deadlift twice once with a belt and then a few minutes later without.

    Another thing I will say is I VERY RARELY see videos on here so I hope seeing me post videos will get more people to post videos. I will say this though I probably wont be posting anymore videos for a while

    Plus if I get some help on my form that would be pretty cool too.

    Focus on keeping your chest up, and "pulling back" with your shoulders and erectors when you're coming out of the hole. I have to concentrate on this same thing - my squats used to look like that. Box Squats and beginning each concentric by "pulling back" has helped alot.

    You've got the strength, you just need to keep that back straight to prevent future injury.

    Thanks man this is the kind of feeback I am really after. Stuff that will actually help me.

    No started thinking about doing it more after this past cycle. My raw strength is there just need to work on my form more especially with it being powerlifting and all. Hopefully I will find a new way of getting videos so I can keep getting help. Lord knows there arent too many people that go heavy where I lift. Plus people seem more afraid to say something to somebody in person. Idk Id like to think Im an approachable person.

    Good - I felt a bit bad with the bluntness of my first post after I found out that was you, so I thought something more constructive was due.

    Another thing I've started doing to combat "good morning"-ing out of the hole is to pull my hands closer together on the bar. This forces the scapulae back and together and sets up the upper back in a "locked" position, making it harder for the back to arch up. I learned that from Kleen.

    I think you should get in the game. Join an organization and have at it. God knows you're strong as hell. Plus, you'll enjoy the added comraderie, networking, and you'll learn all the extra techniques by just watching the gents at your meets..I did a local meet and it was hella fun, specially when I just told myself to have fun and I wasn't there to compete against anyone but myself.

    I tallied 335/405/455 at my first meet at 230ish. Thereafter, learning some new tricks, I never competed again but I was 205 with a 365/455/505. You can do this!

    Do you use a bench shirt/squat suit or train with chains, switching up between power/speed movements?

    In my limited experience, I'll help the best I can.

    Tomahawk, nice max on the deadlift. For a max, you did a lot of pulling with your hips too, which is good.

    For working weight, I would suggest you work to set your lumbar better. Even though your hips were low, your back was still rounded at the start of the lift. This could be due to fatigue, but may also be due to muscular imbalances. Most commonly, it is the result of tight hamstrings (and often cross-lower body syndrome). Tight hamstrings will pull your pelvis underneath you (make you go duck butt) before the lift begins. Start stretching your hamstrings each night. I'd also suggest, if you don't already do so, to perform a few sets of glute activation before dead lifting.

    Impressive weight! Hate the octagon plates.

    Haha that is awesome man. Glad to hear a 12 year old boy can appreciate it now if we could only get the females to lol. U def made me smile a bit with that.

    Im not 100% sure. Plan on going to a local Sci-Fit(dont know how well known they are) but the owner up there powerlifts and should have a decent stock of belts.

    I know I want a double prong and its probably between APT(most likely) and Inzer. APT is what I have been using and I like it.

    Very impressive lift.

    My only concern would be in form doing this on a weekly basis. Your back rounds and your hips raise before your shoulders, placing a lot of stress on the lumbar vertebrae (as the vertebrae shift from a flexed position to an extended). This is ok when maxing out, but on a regular basis will slowly wear away at the intervertebral disks, and can lead to a slipped or even ruptured disk.
