    Yes it is. Shoulders need to be behind the bar more at the start. Your initial movement off the floor is a pull with the erectors. This just plain sucks. You should be trying to push your feet through the floor with your initial movement. And my god get your hips lower and do some core and posterior chain assistance work to get that back straight.

    I don't see a long and prosperous dl'ing career without some major changes. There's some smart people trying to give you a little advice, if it were me, I'd listen...

    EFS has yet to release this series. Honestly, though, conventional deadlifts are not that hard to get. Sumo, on the other hand, is a bitch.

    After looking again you are right. I should have just said just look up EliteFTS Deadlift. There are videos out there on that

  5. Honestly your back is not that bad. You will get some rounding attempting 90%+ but you need to find a program and work it. Increase reps to work on your form. Upper back work, etc like everyone has mentioned. Personally I wouldn't try taking it over 85% and pushing 1rm. Something simple like 531 works great for DL. Do the boring but big program. Probably take 90% of 365 as training max. After training sets just drop to 50-60% of training Max for 5 sets of 10. It works wonders but is brutal.

    ^^true!!! I like my Oly lifting shoes for squatting, and barefoot for DL's
    CT's are great too tho! Old school and useful!

    The problem with those is that you can't put your weight on the outside of the foot.

    For squat or deads?

    What do you wear and how big of a difference does that make?

    I dunno, I wear Merrill "barefoot" shoes. Same basic idea as the vibrams and its not that hard, you just have to be aware of it in your initial setup to the bar.

    Both. Proper footwear has not only increased my poundages, but also kept my healthy by keeping proper technique. For conventional, it's not as big of a deal of to put all of your weight on the outside of the foot, but it is essential for sumo.

  19. Maybe why I haven't had any issues, I don't Sumo very often.

    I just started adding it. Still not sure if I'm a fan. It's definitely tough, lot of balance and concentration

  23. if you take criticism on form all personal and decide you know better you will end up getting hurt brutha, just check out some vids on proper form because most of the time if you eff your back up once it is a cronic problem that will plague you the rest of your life
