>>35528399 It might be a flexibility problem. Stand in front of a mirror so you see yourself from the side. Stand up straight. Keep your back and your legs straight. Now lower your back. Only flex your hips, not your knees. Go as low as you can without arching your back or legs and hold that position, maybe wiggle back and forth a little, but don't arch your back. Do this a few times after a work out, maybe it helps. I remember it helped me a lot with squats and deadlifts.
>>35528157 Is it real /fit/? I have started just yesterday with 10lb plates. I have been just on the dumbbells and machines for past few months. How do you think I should progress with increase in weights?
What you wanna do is approach the bar, drop your hips and while your in that position, activate/flex your glutes and hams. Look in a mirror from a side view while you do this, and perhaps practice doing this in a mirror 5 mins aday at home until you get it. If you can't get this position, maybe you have tight hams? Lie on your back with one straight leg, and lift the other leg 90 degrees to your chest. Cant do this? Tight hams m80.
I used to have a problem where whenever I'd deadlift heavy I'd round my back. I couldn't figure out why. Eventually I realized it was my straps. Whenever I use them I skip the mental cue of pulling my elbows and shoulders back to use my lats. Since switching to just using chalk my form has gotten much better.
>>35538482 Please be trolling, they are completely different movements, and having your hips too low will have you shooting your hips high just to break the bar off the floor, and losing a bunch of energy in the process, leading to lots of weight off the bar.
Take the bar out of a rack or off blocks and do your lifts from the top down so you can start with your back in a good position and maintain it to the floor, or blocks if you cannot maintain it to the floor.
Do some pullups so you can hang your spine into a decent position
>>35539056 It's not weakness, it's mobility and control. My deadlift shot up like crazy once I started weightlifting and got WL shoes, because suddenly I had enough ankle range of motion to more comfortably set up and pull
>>35539073 >Literally every coach in existence tells you WL shoes will add 1.5-2 inches of height and should be avoided for DL. >Even Andy bolton 1009 lbs DLer mentions them Were you deadlifting in stripper heels or something ? Or are you squatting down to the weight?
>>35539111 Bro mobility and flexbility work is absolute bullshit only dyels on fit talk about the guy is a moron I lift in a PL/Oly gym and there are guys that can't touch their toes but deadlift in 240 kg regions with straight back hell one of the guys benches 190 kg and can't do a single chin up.
Just deadlift or squat more if you want to be more flexible in those lifts. Obviously don't be a moron and keep increasing your weight every session when you have shit form.
>>35539122 I went from flat canvas shoes/barefeet to Adipowers. It just puts me in a nicer position to pull. Most WLers prefer to pull in them because they're used to it, but they probably could pull more from flat if they trained to.
>>35539111 Probably. Try this video, it's good for showing you how to set up for a deadlift, and if you can't do it well, you need to find and improve the mobility problems that prevent it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-DJu0bEVPw

The setup for oly/wl lifts are not the same for dl though.
Anyway whatever works for you, but I found other than squats and oly lifts my oly shoes were a hindrance in the DL but then again i'm 5'7 manlet with godly leverages for Bench and Squat and horrible DL.
What are some good alternatives for Weightlifting Shoes? I'm from Argentina and I doubt I will find propper WL footwear so Im looking for something similar, I've heard Converse are good since they have flat bottom but what else should they have to be good for weight lifting?
>>35533668 No, back rounding is a sign of poor form and hte inability to set up properly. Start with bar over midfoot, grab bar. Bend knees till shins touch bar. Push out your chest and bumm at the same time, back should be straight if you do it like this. Also, upper back rounding is not as bad as lower back rounding.
>>35528118 >how do i fix back rounding on deadlift? Your heels come off the ground when doing squats, too, don't they?
You have shit flexibility is your problem, and probably weak core, too.
Quit doing these exercises, at least with any substantial amount of weight, until you fix your flexibility and core strength, or at best you'll stall out early, at worst you'll end up in the ER with a serious injury that will take months to heal and you won't be lifting ever again.
>>35531990 I'm late but if you're still here it's because of the small weight you're using, the bar might be too close to the ground once you can get 135 the bar will be higher allowing you to not round your back. Also i find lowering your ass helps a lot.
