    You have to get the weight off the ground 1st but that was pretty cool music…

    Keep trying. It is hard to tell since it does not lift off the ground, but if you are doing 290, it is probably psychological; being a round number and all. Start thinking about how hard 320 is going to be and 300 will not seem so daunting.
    Also, you better post the lift when you get it. I want to know how long it takes to get past this.
    Good Luck.

    seems like you're lacking power off the floor. Work some deadlifts off blocks. I use 4" blocks as a minimum. Doing both speed work and heavy singles. These will increase your power and strength off the floor.

    I'd like to see the 290 kg lift before commenting further honestly.

    Can't exactly say much having not seen and actual lift... No flame intended of course.

    On a side note.. looking hella thick.

    Have you thought about some band work?

    If you can get past the initial getting off the ground and lift then I think bands might help in this case. Initially with reverse band lifts the weight will be lighter but as you move the weight up the bands will be come less and less supportive completing the rep with the full weight at the top. I think this will help with your speed and initial power…

    It's the complete opposite for me - I get it off the floor a piece of piss, it's the 2nd half of the lift I struggle with, my form on deads is complete dogshit though... lol

    I recently got the 300 (on youtube if ya wanna see), currently struggling with getting 310, I have dropped the weight back down again and am working my way up to it again - reckon I'll get it week after next.

    To Look at your youtube video Deadlift Lighten up the weight 50-60%Pull for speed and technique. You are a tall puller so yes you are going to use more back so what you want to do is bring in more glutes hams and quads this will be accomplished by pointing your feet futher out this will allow you to sit down low and bring in your glutes/hams/quads your knees should not ever go over your toes your problem is the way you're pulling is causing rounding of the back due to lack of leg power also your kees come over the bar also how you been down and grab the bar Refer to Bolton Vs Magnussun on Youtube Use what i tell you plus this vid as an example if you have any more questions let me know.

    hard to say it's a form issue until we see a good lift. As stated above pull off a box to increase your starting strength. My preference is 45lb plates, 100lb plates or a 4 inch box to pull from. Good luck bro and keep lifting big!!!
