    I cant seem to keep my back strait when lifting, any tips. (I always were a belt.) I'm guessing I will just have to practice and practice good form.

    well you should feel the lower back.
    I had good success with cable rows to strengthen the middle of my back (24" neutral grip would work great). Also reverse pec dec to hit the traps and rhomboid area. Really just work on pinching the shoulder blades together on all your back movements.
    While deadlifting, think about keeping your chest up, driving through your legs and pushing your heels through the floor. Once it passes the knee, DRIVE your hips forward into the bar.

    Deads I love em! Adding deadlifts to my training is one of the best things I have done to up my strength. My squat went up, bent over rows went up and my hamstrings love em! I deadlift on back day. Outside of a warmup it ws the first thing I do for my back. On leg day I do sumo deadlifts. I tend to drop my hips more and I feel them in my hamstrings at the bottom of the move. I like to use it as a tie end move at the of my quad exercises to the start of my hamstring work. My squat went up due to the explosive power I could develop using those sumo deads. Yanking that weight off the ground is fun and less spooky than the heavy squats. I like to squat too and still do but without a training partner it is hard to commit yourself to a new pr lift when your not sure how the guy spotting you is going to spot you. Some are over helpful no matter how you explain you lifting style and some might not know what they are doing. With the deads its just you and the weight no worries! Love em!!!

    It's your posture. Start with your butt low, and shoulders back

    sort of. I see a lot of people start with the proper posture and then it gives out on them. The trick is holding that posture with a few hundred pounds attached to your arms! lots of times the trouble is in the middle back (the muscles that squeeze the shoulder blades together). They have to be very strong to maintain that "chest out" posture.
    Another exercise that seems to be very good for that is old school t bar rows in the corner. allows very heavy weight and requires the same back "position". get stronger on those and you deadlift form will improve.

    -rotate which one you start with every week
    -do the first movement heavy (3-5 rep range)
    -second movement 8-12 rep range
    this way they both get trained with heavy weight and higher volume over the long run. Also by training them both on the same day, the lower back gets a full week to recover before being tormented again by the 2 largest exercises. Although this day would suck, it would be better on the lower back compared to doing them on seperate days.

    IF you do deads on back day:
    -One week start with them and go fairly heavy 1-3 reps and shoot for a new pr on this week. Starting with them will make sure you are fresh and ready to go all out on one big all out set. I would also ditch the straps on this day and go with a mixed grip. You should be strong enough to hold on to 1-3 reps.
    -The next week finish with them and do higher reps like 8-12. They do feel different with a good pump going on. On this day I would recommend using straps and a dbl overhand grip to keep everything even. I would also try to get 2-3 sets in rather than 1 all out.

    Thats just my opinion though.


    My best pull to date (655), completely raw, natrual and I think around 213 bodyweight or so.
    SICK LIFT MAN!

    Thanks bro. It was a few years ago and I am now back to around 600. I hope to finally get 675 (which I missed a few times) in a few months perhaps...

    I have a lingering lower back injury from a few years back (not caused in the gym), so I don't deadlift and squat.. and if I can't squat and deadlift heavy.. I DON'T want to do them all all!

    I know it's stupid logic, but it's all or nothing for me.. nothing beats the sensation and HULK-LIKE feeling you get from deadlifting and squatting heavy pundages!!

    Now I just have to work around it and do other stuff.. I sound like an old man haha

    I deadlift on DEADLIFT day - lol. I follow it up with Lat and Ab training, and sometimes I'll drag the sled at the end of the workout.

    I don't do them. I've tried them and my waist got too thick, so I stay away from them now
