Sumo Deadlift form check
« on: February 26, 2016, 10:46:42 PM »
Hello all,

Here is me deadlifting 195kg for 2 reps, my current max is 230kg.

Any critique or analysis would be greatly appreciated.

Looks pretty good tbh, only advice I can give is that your upper back very slightly buckles at the start of the pull, try strengthening this up and see what difference it makes :) Also lowering the weight under control is a great way to get more practice in and build some more muscle for your pulls, give it a go!

Always felt like my upper back needs strengthening will start doing so ASAP.

Thanks a lot for the advice

You could adjust your vision to look slightly higher, you might find it helps with the upper back position as well.
