Default Deadlift Form Critique

Hi guys, I'm focusing on bringing up my deadlift over the next couple of months. Any opinions on my form or things I might try to improve upon moving forward?

doesn't look too bad to me.

- Maybe your hips are a tad slow - they take a split second to start moving forward as you're lifting (but whos aren't)

- Not being able to drop the bar sucks, your back will take an extra 2 days to recover from the eccentric once you start getting heavier

- Some of your reps looked a bit rushed. At the end of the rep reset, deep breath, lift so its the same every time, like a routine in between reps. Having round plates help here if you drop it wonky.

- I suspect the bar might be an inch? too far forward from your centre of gravity. What makes me think that is your have no shin protection and also this could be causing your hips to come in late (see point 1). If you never accidentally hit your shin, your probably not as tight as you could be

I could be wrong about the hips being slow though. I'm not really an expert, and they look pretty good

Thank you for the feedback. I think you're right that I'm rushing, slowing it down might help the hips too.
