Congrats on the PR.  It's okay to get more excited about PRs.  Looked like a warmup set for you.  ;)

Nice work, just make sure you keep your back straight on tight on the way down as well.

I agree with Fiend, you've made great progress since you've started here.

Thank you all, it's a great feeling to finally break the 200+ lbs barrier.
I think that my form was seriously hindering my strength, and so were my shoes! First time I've DL'd without shoes, and I felt much more planted and solid.

In regards to keeping my back straight on the way down, I was deciding on whether to risk tearing my knees apart or bending a little hahaha
I have another video where I do it better.

Also, I'm tired of my gym's lack of round plates. I don't like having to reset every time, and the weights move around WAY too much.

I did one set of 5, I just wanted to see the video to make sure my form wasn't suffering. Thank you man!

GJ! much improved form since those horrific early vids

still a few things to tighten up and you'll be good for 255 at least

I'd lower it faster so you don't do that awkward double bend around the knees on a single. Slow negs are ok imo on a RDL or sumo but not on conventional pulls

repped  ;D

My back wasn't wrecked afterwards, unlike my early DLs lol
I got the weight up, and then I was thinking "how the hell do I put this thing down now?" :D
