Nice pull on the deadlift! Be mindful of keeping your back straight and core tight on the way down, though.

Great lift !! Hard to see how your feet and hands are placed from the side angle, but it didn't look bad at all.

Once the weight starts getting up there and you're working with weight that feels heavy for you, I'd look at starting to incorporate some speed work. I can fill you in on that later ~ well done though!

No worries mate. Another thing you might find pretty cool (I just mentioned this in captfit's log) is to look at the deadlift in a slightly different way...
One thing I have found really useful is rather than thinking of the DL as a pull, imagine it as a pressing movement.
Next time you deadlift, imagine trying to push/drive your feet down into the floor. Once the bar is off the floor you'll be surprised at how much extra power this gives you.

Check this out mate and see what you think...



I filmed this video a few months back, there's an hours worth of deadlifting that's been cut down to a little over 11mins. I talk you through how I work through sets, how to structure your warmups sets in terms of reps and then we get into the bigger weights. I finished up on pulling 440lb (a little over 3 x bw) off a couple of 20kg plates :)
