Deadlift advice: everyone has an opinion. You’re best, most likely, to follow the Xfit prescription for body position. Safe, functional, puts your body in “strong” position.

Bar against shins, shins straight up/down, butt back/up, shoulders over bar, lock “core”, bar in contact with body, drive through heels, maintain angles through the entire pull (ie, don’t snap lower before weight even passes shins), on descent reverse all that.
