need advice on deadlift technique
hi, ive been doing bodybuilding seriously only for about 4-5 months, i have just recently changed my routine to the same as `cashmans routine` i did my 1st day today i planned to do 4 deadlifts 3 sets of 8 lattpulldowns 3 sets of 8 barbel curls and 3 sets on one armed hammer curls but the deadlift machines/eqpt was beng used so i went on leg extensions for 2 sets to get my blood going lol
any way i still did the deadlifts (4) really i did 5 coz i warmed up with a 50kg bar
i did the 4 sets of 8 @ 110kg
its my 1st day,
then i did my lats and biceps
my question is ` im 6ft2 tall i used a free bar and free weights am i right in thinking i keep legs straight then bend over and pik it up
or do i keep legs straight and bend over and bend knees a little?
i felt as though i was risking a lower back injury, i wasnt wearing a belt is it neccassary?
can anyone make the image of the correct technique clearer in my mind please
