  1. Watched the vids and took his advice... when I checked the videos it looked way off though. It's the latest 5 vids on my channel. I think my hips are too high now. My knees aren't getting in the way, but everything feels super tight, and my lower back is bending even more. Gonna shoot for the middle-ground next time. Completely unrelated question; I decided to get serious about core workouts, and a problem I've always had with working out my core is that my back gets sore way before I even feel my abs. My lower back can be dying, but I won't even feel any burn in my abs. Any ideas? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBij5ScWDM_pkKWcTpVSIhA
  2. I think it has to do with my lower back rounding. I think I have to hinge more at the hips and less at the knees; my knees have actually been getting in the way of the bar a little bit....
  3. I'll try to fix it and post some more vids in a day or two. I actually noticed the same thing when I was checking the vids last night actually... It's gonna be awkward as fuck to fix.
  4. Well, I talked to my physiotherapist today about a weight belt, and he told me that they would only help for the lower back. My injury is more upper back and shoulders. I'm not noticing any ridiculous pain or anything so far though so I'd say my form is alright. I actually got up to 4 sets of 15 today; I was really proud of myself. Making some definite progress! I think I'll have to up the weight pretty soon and see if I start getting any pain from it. If you guys think my form is alright though I'm not too worried.
  5. Hey guys, I'm just getting over a back injury and my physiotherapist sais that deadlifting will help a lot. This isn't the only exercise I'm doing, as I'm looking to get lean and fit all around, but I want to make sure that my form on the deadlift is perfect before I up the weights so I don't risk injury again. If you guys could take a look at a few of these videos and let me know what I could improve on, or whether I look like I'm risking injury in any way, let me know. I'd really appreciate your feedback! P.S you might have to skip ahead in a few of the videos, I'm a shitty camera guy Also, any tips for a beginner? I've already got the nutrition down, I've been eating nothing but whole foods for the past few years. Also just started bumping the calories way up (3-4000 a day). As far as training goes, I could definitely use a few pointers. Day 1: Day 2: Day 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9OrHTz6RI0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3S8O82b-jk
