Hi all,
Being a calithstenic junkie all my life I just recently started Deadlifting.
I am having real trouble keeping my spine neutral (not rounding my back)as I hinge.
Any tips on working on getting the full ROM?

Try to do elevated deadlifts and see what happens.

If you find that you can do elevated deadlifts no problem, keep doing them for a while and then do them slightly less elevated. Rinse and repeat.

By the way, if you need to start with the barbell just below your patella, that’s more than fine.
