I have been experimenting with stiff legged deadlifts because I think my hamstrings are underdeveloped. Anyway, my back was really sore from them, more than usual, and I still feel it even a week later. It feels more like “back soreness” than muscle soreness. I’m just doing normal deadlifts this week, and will go maybe a little lighter than usual.
Is this normal? I do think I might hold the barbell a bit farther from myself than normal, but I don’t want to hit my knees or foot as I’m lifting. Is there any way to get good hamstring work without this exercise anyway?
