Most people don't learn to tighten their posterior chain on the first rep, and at times I still struggle with it. Learn to sit back, tighten your glutes/hams and focus on pulling through your heels to keep a straight bar path while flattening out your knees as the bar hits mid shin.\
What shoes do you deadlift in?
