I've tried doing some halting deadlifts, but I think im still doing it wrong and don't want to ingrain/practice the motion incorrectly
My post above ^^^^ would explain this too I believe, as you're putting yourself in a better position to pull, and remaining on balance from the hang. Showing that the problem can maybe be attributed to the hip rise during 1st pull...
