Here's a video of my last set of Deadlifts today. Any critique on my form would be much appreciated

I used straps on this set because the bar kept slipping out of my hands.

lose the pants and the straps. get some shorts and chalk. Pants will ruin a deadlift when its a max attempt. The only thing i noticed was on the last rep you kinda of turned it into two motions. Try to keep it one motion. otherwise it looked pretty good to me.

Thanks for the feedback I appreciate it. I watched the vid again and I see what you mean about how I kinda turned it into two motions on the last rep. I'll make sure to keep it one motion next time. I have been using chalk, and I used it on my first set but for some reason I was having trouble holding onto the bar today.
