I am having such an issue with deadlifts, I just can’t get the back position right. It didn’t help that I was using a fixed weight bar rather than a bar plus weights. I shall remember to use them next time as the plates give it a little lift of the floor so I don’t need to hold it all the time.
With the assisted pull up machine the idea is to eventually pull up your whole body weight so the less you use the better.
I increased some weights but decreased others.
