Your back is rounding and your negatives look dangerous. Try lowering yourself with an arched back.

Exactly my point I can't - but the reason I have so far is because I wasn't aware of the form issues, i.e. I've never had pain and it felt fine using the same progression schemes as I have on bench and squat. Its just knowing what to do now that I know my form is bad that is the problem?

Thanks alot for your help.

Make a video of yourself performing some RDLs(http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/tra...l-vs-sldl.html). If that lift comes naturally to you, but lifting from the floor doesn't, conclusions can probably be drawn by someone smarter than me. Logically, certain combinations of leg length/hip flexibility/arm length/etc won't be able to set up a deadlift from the floor properly.

Sorry this point hadn't loaded - thank you - I have since corrected my lowering phase, just really struggling with the back rounding issue, at any weight!

Will do, thank you - I'll do them after squats instead of leg curls and see how I go on with them, I've never tried them before.
