    Are you supposed to lockout each time when you get the weight up? When I was doing it I got the weight up fine but my shoulders were a little hunched over and I didn't lean back to lock it out. I usually do this on my last rep but sometimes I don't lockout. I didn't think it was a big deal cus the hard part is getting the weight up. Locking it out is easy. But someone pointed out to me that I wasn't locking out and i was just curious.

    Oh i see. My shoulders were a little hunched forward. My back was straight though. I didn't find it a big deal cus locking out is no big deal for me.

    You should bring your shoulders back....but do not lean back.

    Well i guess the common consensus here is shoulders back. Well if that's how you do it then I will do it that way. It's pretty easy so it won't hurt my lifts at all.
