      Took me a while to learn this even with a competitive powerlifting 'training' me. I couldn't figure out how to push my butt down before I go up until I did it and then it just hit me.

        Another big one I see with conventional deadlifts is cranking the head up, or starting with a hyperextended neck position. Packing your neck on the deadlift is so much better, and it helps keep your back in a good position when you pull.

                Nice, lol. But I just thought that was a weird thing to say because all the other points were good, and the problem lifters have is breaking the floor too late, not early, as a result of not pulling the slack out of the bar. Maybe quickly just means they turn it to 10 from the floor rather than accelerate from the floor?

                  slack, as in as you initiate the lift ramp up the lift quickly until it breaks the floor, or prelift the slack for a second or 2 and when you initiate the lift, the dl is a little easier?

                    If I understand you correctly, either is fine, or at least either is better than going at full speed from the start without having first pre-bent the bar aka pulled the slack out of the bar.
