Yup. I tried it today by moving the bar even farther back (shins almost vertical) so that I could almost teeter myself backwards. That helped me a bit more, but I still feel far weaker than if I do a higher hip start. bleh.

Are you taking much time once you grab the bar before you pull it? Too much pause will negate the stretch reflex and that always fucks my form. I've had good luck with starting with the bar a bit in front of where it should be and rolling it back into my shins as I pull upward.

I've tried the roll method and I end up with the bar too far forward. If I try to roll it more backwards to a better start I feel like I'm going to fall over, so it's easier to set up slower. I was toying with the olympic way of setting up by squatting down to the bar first and then setting up from the bottom, but that doesn't work as well for deadlifts since the shin isn't at an angle like it is for cleans/snatches. I just feel like I can't keep hamstring tension if my legs are bent, and when that happens, it feels like my back takes more of the load

I'd honestly say getting the bar up is the only thing to worry about as long as you're not hurting yourself, but I'm a results guy rather than a procedure guy, so your mindset may be different. Mind/muscle connection builds up over time to let you focus on one muscle over another when both would be working (did lat-focused chinups today).

Ya I think the problem is that since i have injured my back on deadlifts twice before, that I tend to shift the weight to my hamstrings because I'm subconsciously afraid of injuring myself again. However, I hate having my deadlift lag so far behind my squat (it's half the ROM for fuck's sake), and I don't consider sumo to be a real deadlift.

I'm results as long as it isn't going to hurt me, and since I've hurt my back before (and kind of last week), I'd rather avoid it if I can. Sure it'll take longer to progress, but backtracking 3 months because of a 10lb PR isn't worth it to me.

I think I'm going to start doing weighted back extensions on the GHD when I get back to school to try and get my lower back stronger.

Also. Boom. I've had this mindset for a while, but never really wanted to voice it due to a lack of any real evidence.

Day 3 on UD 2.0 (carb depleted as hell):



About 14 days ago I caught a cold/virus and got really bloated. It literally looked like I had gained 10 pounds of fat. I lost most of the water after I got better from the sickness but I guess this low carb got rid of the last bit of it.

Glycogen depletion workouts on low carb/lowcalories suck, you don't even know.

Rest day today kinda... going to go swim some laps for 45 minutes.
