How do I learn and maintain proper form if I'm lifting alone?

I hate people and don't want to interact with them, yet I want to maintain proper form when lifting. Do I just use mirrors? Record myself?

    Don't pull with your back. Pull with your hips, glutes, and quads. You shouldn't use your back in the deadlift at all except to shrug at the top of the lockout

      I'm not just referring to deadlifts (although picrel is one).

        Oh. Well watch videos. Then record yourself. Try not to look in the mirror unless the mirror is front facing. Turning your head to look at a side mirror can actually make you mess up your form.

        If you look at your recording and it's not quite right, then deload and try again. Keep going until you get the form correct.

        It's ok to spend a couple weeks at a low weight to get your form correct. Perfect form lasts much longer and you'll get more gains in the end than if you have sloppy form and eventually injure yourself.

    Learn to slackpull and brace.
    Take a wider stance with toes pointed slightly out, so there is more room for your pelvis to move. (If your pelvis has no room, you will be forced to bend at your spine to reach the bar).
    Wear a belt if you have one.
    Film yourself from time to time, to check your form.

    Overtime your body will just know proper form. Start lightweight and focus on pushing your ass out as much as possible and keeping your back from arching at all. Learn to feel the muscle group you want activated, for deadlifts you should feel your hamstrings and the bottom of your heels pushing into the earth.

      >you have to deadlift like a shitty clean pull or it's bad form
      This is the worst meme in fitness.

      This is even worse. Rising your hips before the lift will make you hunch over the bar and end up doing a moronic half squat unless you're wearing a suit. Literally just hinge your hips, grab the bar, push your hips back til you stretch your hammies and rip the fricker up. It's not hard

    Film it, review it and maybe even post it here for critique.

    Left will result in less injuries because the load is distributed through the whole spine. On the right all that angular stress is going right into the lowest intervertebral disc. Enjoy disc herniation

    anyone who deadlifts over 300lbs will tell you left looks better than right.

    OP here, I forgot to add that I have an inguinal hernia that I'm going to get fixed soon. Will I be able to lift heavy weights after I recover?

    Its as simple as thinking "chest up, ass back"
    If you are still collapsing, try doing back hyperextensions to strengthen your erectors and lower the weight
