1. Deadlift with a band over the bar and under your feet, at a lighter weight obviously. It creates tension and as the band stretches you really have to work for the lockout.

  2. Rack half your max weight and do ten sets of two with fifteen second rests between each set. With as clean form as possible, go for speed. If you can build up the momentum of your lift (essentially making sure your legs and glutes are doing the work) lockout should just happen on its own. Think of it like power cleans. If you have the momentum from a fully committed leg movement, the weight will simply arrive where it needs to and you'll adjust your upper body to catch it. Not a perfect metaphor, but I hope it helps. TL;DR - lower the weight and work on leg and hip drive. Also, back extensions and good mornings.
