Obviously your back is not super rounded, I would be more concerned about the bouncing between reps.

 

Strong though.

Touch and go trying for some speed, bounce a little excessive.

Like I said I'm no expert,  but it almost looks like 2 movements. Hinging at the hips, hips going back slightly almost like an RDL going down. Looked like you were rounding your back slightly and losing tension at the bottom of the reps. Your glutes drop then you squeeze your shoulders back and glutes up.

I've been told to build tension and brace at the start of the rep. I find touch and go reps keep me tight the entire rep. You could try doing a complete reset/pause at the bottom of each rep?

Squat University and Dr John Rusin have some good info and clips on their pages.

Note: Obviously very happy with my PB on dead lifts, I haven't been training them much properly. Maybe it was because my body weight is creeping up a bit.  Also there was no belt on this dead lift, I don't think I have even done a single at 200 without a belt before.

Are you doing a % based program at the moment? Did you put it together yourself or get it done for you?

Wendlers 5-3-1 is a good progressive % based program. I also have Thors Power Program downloaded if you're interested.

Face pulls 8*3 40lb , DB ex rotors 8*3 6kg

 

BB BP

 

137.5*3r*5s (volume PB previous best 137.5kg*3*3)

 

DB chest supported row

 

35kg*5*5

 

Front squats paused

 

110kg*3*3 (belt on last set)

 

Note: bench felt strong, much easier and stronger than last time I did 137.5kg*3*3. I might go for 140kg*3*3 next session (or 5 sets if I am feeling it). Front squats paused feeling good. 3rd rep on all sets was quite hard lol.

I am not really doing a program at the moment lol. I lost a bit of hope after I didn't PB on my last program. I am just adding 2.5kg a week for bench 3 sets of 5 and the rest, just make the weights on the day :S. 

 

I am doing pull ups, OHP and a lower body one day and then BP, rows and a lower body exercise the other day.

Sometimes a 3rd day where I will normally repeat.

Check out Jim Wendlers 5-3-1 mate. I can send you Thors (aka the mountain from game of thrones) power program if you like.
