Dead lift critique please

Recommended Posts

I've been playing around with back angle, by dropping my hips. I have an injury that limits my left ankle dorsiflexion. So the video shows as low as I can go bare foot. I tried wearing my heels and could get lower but it felt harder due to it basically being a defecit dead lift.

Anyway how's this 180kg lift look?

Your hips rise before you pull. To minimise that pull the bar tight to your shins and pinch your shoulder blades back. 

All in all a nice lift mate. 

Have you tried rolling the barbell out before you lift? That stops my hips from shooting up. 

Have you tried to work on the ankle? Bands are a good go to. Even warming your ankles up doing seated called raises helps.

My ankle injury is a shattered talus from falling down a cliff 6 years ago. It's the best it's been since, sometimes I floss it before lifting and that does help a bit.

Thanks for taking time to reply.

s**t the bed mate, you’ve done well. 

You’re welcome. Take it easy mate
