    Use smaller plater when you dead. Improve your posterior chain strength which means adding glute ham raises/reverse hypers/pull-throughs would be a good idea.

    you could also throw in some speed deadlifts depending on your routine.

    Training with 25lbs discs will improve your starting point but, my question is, when you tried passing that sticking point, do you rep it out easily? because if not it means that, maybe, you are doing more weight that you can handle.

    These tips are useful, but it may be your form from the start. The bottom is always the easiest place to lose form. Have someone who knows how to DL watch you.

    I just started this to improve my sticking point and I was sore for 5 days. When using 45's I don't get sore anymore. Amazing how a slight rom change can effect things.

    i started a similar thread a few weeks ago. i think deep front squats are the best, and i included some straight leg lockouts as well. sort of isolating the different parts of the lifts. how flexible are you?
