    Is that an acceptable amount of upper back arch then?

    More than fine. I'd play with that start position and keeping it close. But all good to go heavier.

    Form check please

    Lift better and be stronger.

    Still looks safe tbh, some form breakdown. Looks like you're focusing on pulling with your back which is ok, but bit slow.

    what aspect is lacking tho lol

    ok need to be faster - check

    why did I grind it out so much? I've never grinded like that, so I'm wondering what my weak point is and how to work on it?

    thanks

    It was a joke lol, I like to give ******** cues sometimes. "LIFT LESS **** PLEASE".

    You lose back position, kinda need to connect back tightness, with posterior chain firing pre pull. Hold all that tension then leg press it off the floor, hips through to lockout.

    Really shitly explained - Essentially try to put as much tension in with your back pre pull, hold that tension - as soon as you feel it peak hold it and push your legs into the ground. That could work (need to time it with breathing and core tightness).

    To my eye it looks like you're using PC only, pushing through heels ect, which isn't wrong but I like to combine mine with leg pressing and using quads to get it moving from the floor, thats where speed is.
