      Sit back into the lift more. It doesn't look like you're using your hips ideally.

      IMO those looked OK. No worries on the pause...better to reset then to compromise your form.

      Btw wtf is with the guy squatting right in front of you?

      This is probably the only spot where I can deadlift, and there is only 1 squat rack in the gym

      They looked pretty good. The only potential thing is your butt is maybe too high when your starting out. This would prevent your hamstrings from putting in their fair share of work. It could just be a camera angle thing though that was a pretty bad camera angle.

      Will keep in mind. Although when I try that, I feel like my hams are burning and about to collapse. Is it normal? what can I do to improve my starting position? I guess it's a flexibility issue?

      yep. Last time I checked deadlifts do in fact use your hams

      No, I mean, They burn only in the starting position. I feel them through the lift, but in order to stabilize myself they are working really hard.

      I personally believe you should tailor the deadlift weight to your weakest muscle. Eventually your hamstrings will catch up in strength (they were probably under developed, it's VERY common muscle to be underdeveloped.)

      Also, supplementary ham sandwhich, oops I mean hamstring training can be done on leg day (assuming your doing deads on back day that is). Try and seperate your back day and leg day as far apart as you can though.

      Just my 2 cents.
