Hello from France,
I love so much RDL as an assistance move for my 5/3/1 work, I don’t want to stop them…the problem is that after adding weight weeks after weeks, my Barbell RDL becomes to be painfull for my lower back.
Is there any article or ideas here to help me use a more back-friendly variation ?
With DB, I can’t load as much as with BB and plates.
I remember reading an article about doing them on the Smith machine, but can’t remember the author and the details.
Any idea ?
Thank you !
Forget the advanced versions and single leg versions. It’s good your back is hurting. Your body is telling you something, probably that your not doing the exercise correctly, which is the most logical explanation for your back pain.
Your thought process shouldn’t be ok then let me do a different exercise but instead, if I’m not doing this exercise correctly, whats the chance I am going to do other exercises that work in essentially the same way correctly.
The answer is you probably wont.
Glute activation buddy. Don’t think I’m fine it’s the exercise that is the problem. Trust me. It’s you.
