    Well, I'm not an expert. The couple things I see though is your not using your pelvis/hips much. You dont sit back into it to get down to the bar and produce more bend at the knees. Also the bar seems far away from your body throughout the movement. My understanding is you should be practically dragging it up your shins on the way up then end up .....basically humping the bar, as I have heard it said. Someone should be better able to critique since I'm a novice though. Here is a video though Mark Rippetoe: Intro to the Deadlift - YouTube

    As Neckhammer said - much more flexion through the hips and much less through the back. Good mornings will be useful for you to activate your posterior chain and start firing things properly. PM me if you want more help here.

    Agree with Neckhammer and Coach. Lower your hips down. Keep the bar closer to your body. Even in your initial set up at the bar, your back looks flexed and rounded forward - I kept waiting for you to straighten it out before pulling, but it didn't happen.

    You need to lean back more. Simply put. And don't turn your head. Pull the slack out of the bar before your initial pull. If you jerk the bar on the initial pull, you're asking for a torn bicep. Check out Dave Tate's deadlift instructional videos on YouTube or elite fts. Also, try pulling barefoot or in chucks.

    Not to pile on but I agree that you need a lot of work on your technique. You must feel a lot of strain in your lower back when you deadlift like that because that's what is doing all the work. My back hurt just watching the video.

    I heard a good thought key about the deadlift the other day. On the way down, think about trying to close the car door with your butt. This will get your posterior chain more involved and it will also bring the weight in closer to your center of gravity. You should be pretty much pulling the bar up your shins on the way up.
