Deadlift PB 145kg x 2. Annoying because I didn't go for a third and should have tried a heavier single. Wasn't tired, just assumed that I wouldn't go higher. Stupid psychological barrier;
In other news, received a warning from the TSR stasi police; I must extend my apologies to you good chaps and chapettes as one of my posts must have caused much offence, with the use of the words eff see you kay and pish. Jeez.

Big deadlift PB for me 2 days ago, videoed it and its below, constructive criticism please.
Form isnt great cos its my 1rm, I realise I pull too much with my back and hamstrings and need to involve legs/quads more. Back rounds a bit and struggled to lock out but i got it
Good job, sir. Your technique is much like mine, ie. not starting too low. Same height as you I think (6ft 2) so perhaps has something to do with leg length. Mate of mine is short (~5ft 8) and can pull 225 and starts with his ass much lower to the ground.

Too long didn't read: Is it good or bad?
Meh, there's a bunch of ****. In the end you pray to the Iron Gods that you don't get injured.
It's a considered answer.

lifting with a neutral spine increases the tolerable training volume...
Now for a paradox: If a guy has a long history of lifting with some flexion, the trabecular bone in the vertebral body will be strongly adapted. It appears as though stronger and denser trabecular bone reduces vertebral end plate damage and the ensuing delamination process. This characterizes the grand old men of powerlifting who have survived years of lifting with a flexed spine.
But a newer lifter has a higher risk since they don't have years of loading history to create the adaptation. But the loading is needed to stimulate the adaptation, and this is the most perilous time. Some will survive, but others will have the legacy of a problematic back.
