deadlift technique?!

hi guys, i've been reading on deadlifts and have been incorporating it into my training routine because i realise how important it is. i've read quite a few long articles on the technique of deadlifting as there are no people in the gym i go to that can really help me, as they're all the cardio/machine weights only type

anyways, everytime i do my dealdifts i end up with grazes on my shin and knee...... any of you guys do this to yourself trying to keep it close to your body?

also, i dont understand how your meant to start the movement with the bar so close to the shin without ur shoudlers going over the bar? is there any articles u guys can suggest reading that will give simple guide or demonstration, or maybe some 1 can explain what i might be doing wrong?

would really appreciate some help here

cheers

    As for a side profile, try this link

    yep

    You may have your back to close to horizontal? Should be angled around 45 degrees... Try droping a few kg's and starting in a more upright position - this should have the effect of making you 'sit back' before you start the pull and hopefully get your shoulders back to where they should be. This will require a bit more leg drive at the start of the lift.

    If you're a gangly bugger you might try moving to Sumo style deads (I'm a convert these days).
