Whatever cue I use, I cant get my back to not round at the BEGINNING of my deadlift. Yes I’ve taken lighter weight and also deloaded just to be safe and I dont want to not push myself and be stuck at one weight for eternity so whenever I even add 5 pounds or even 2.5 pounds, the rounding happens. Also another question is, whenever we attempt moderate or high rep deadlifts, how does one maintain a straight neutral back especially towards the end where even if you try to keep your back straight you get some rounding?
My first time deadlifting today after 4 months of not really doing DL.
Today for DL i did 225 for 3 sets of 5 and if I recall, I did 275 for 6-8 for like 5 sets 4 months back and all that… so even this "deadlift deload " along with actual deload didnt really help me.
It sounds simple to progressively overload but it’s much harder to do than words themselves.
How do you guys break through plateus if deload fails
