Default Deadlift feedback

6'4" / ~185#
5 reps @ 275#

Right hand is supinated. I hook on all my warm-up sets. This wasn't ME, just my weekly work set and I thought I would get some feedback.

Look pretty reasonable to me

6'4" 185 though? You could stand to gain some weight?

Given your height and appendage length, good work.

Keep up the good work.

All the best,
Arden

Thanks, guys.

I'm looking to get back to a 2xBW 1RM, which I did a few years ago (end of summer?). Then maybe I will worry about my deficient squatting.

I could stand to gain weight, yes. But I am not fond of how I feel when I consume the quantity and quality of calories necessary for my body to pack on pounds. So I worry about getting stronger instead.

Chris,

I think these look pretty good as well, you're working around the long leg thing pretty well..what do you think needs improvement?

you might shoot a vid a little closer to a limit weight, like a heavy double or triple

I thought it looked ok to me. But then, I have never coached or been coached when it comes to lifting so I thought I would see what more experienced folks thought.

The other lift I do is the RDL. I'm going to try to get some footage of that up tomorrow.
