    nice job ... I am not a technical DL guy... but I have always been taught to use more legs than back... that looked like a lot of back to me. I am not trying to take away from what you did... but am I wrong in the sense that I should be using more leg?

    Not exactly: two cups of "Death Wish" coffee + 24 mg ephedrine = Deadlift PRs and shaky hands. :D

    Great job, but I have to be honest with you...............the next vid you post had better be a HUGE smokey burnout from a shiny Mopar:)

    I am swapping the wheels/tires out as soon as I get it so I may just do that. :)

    Varies person to person. Sometimes when you sink the hips you wind up trying to squat the weight instead of pull it.

    The trick is to find that leverage point where you kind of wedge yourself under the bar and shoot the hips forward.

    I haven't seen a pic of you for a few years but what I vaguely recall you would probably do better with lower hips and more leg drive.

    Set ups vary from person to person. Your hips should be lower then your shoulders.
