My deadlift has always been my best lift. At my best I was 6'1", 172, and could pull 455 twice while maintaining a 18 minute 3 mile (military stuff). I have normal length arms, a short torso, and long ass legs.

 

Anyway... I've always preformed this lift with 'strict' form. IE very neutral back position, and consequently my hips have always been a little higher in this movement which would always wreck my back when I start to get heavy. Anyway, I haven't done this lift for about a year and just started to get back into it about 6 weeks ago. I was worked up to 315 for a set of 4 and as usual my back started to hurt. I tried to get my hips to drop slightly and my back rounded a little bit. I said fuck it and pulled it anyway. It stretched my back a bit and I feel GREAT. In fact, I can lift better and more comfortably with a slightly rounded back. It's been 2 days and my back feels fantastic. I've been doing some research on this for the first time and i'm wondering if anybody else has any experience on this. I'm a little worried about messing my back up deadlifting like that, but in all honesty the whole lift feels much more comfortable doing it this way. Can anybody school me on this?

 

thanks.

I am assuming you mean you round your upper back and shoulders. All the great pullers, with the exception of the pussy sumo pullers (sorry not sorry lift conventional and stfu), pull this way. In my experience this helps with breaking off the floor. The part that sux is the last 2-3 inches because basically you have to round/shrug the bar back to "unround" and straighten/lock out.

Though sometimes it just looks rounded but thats cause their lower back is so damn big

^^^ I've done 635 def could do over 650 if I don't squat 2 days before and rack pull 1 day before that. I'm going to squat Saturday this week giving me an extra day for my CNS to recover. We sees what happens.

 

There are very few people I respect that sumo of course Dan greene is one. Like mofos maxing sumo deadlift with 2 plates. I'm like mofo you moving that shit 2 fucken inches and your like over 185 lbs...... facepalm.

I tend to round the upper back forward a bit - mostly due to not pulling my shoulders back far enough.  I have a 455 at 225 lbs, age 48.  So, not a massive lift, but I am older.  I don't see an issue with it as long as you are bracing your muscles correctly.  Grip and rip.  I mean, look at atlas stone lifts - done the same way.  You hunch over, brace, and start hauling. 

 

I've not had any back problems since I started lifting 5 years ago.  The only time I hurt myself is when I try to add running to my cardio (knees, shins) or start doing pull ups (right shoulder).

You can round the upper back or not. If conventional it helps break the floor. If sumo a straight back seems to help more. When I pull conv I personally: set my belt high on my abs, crank it so I can barely take a half breath as this keeps my shoulders lower, set my hips first, and finally grip and rip letting the upper back round some. Sumo is to technical to explain in text honestly.
