When I deadlift, I only feel it in my whole back and never in my hams or glutes, even when I go low. My back grows like weed afterwards but hams and glutes don’t. What could be the problem?
What style of deadlifts are you doing?

Mostly conventional, sometimes sumo.
Try dropping your ass lower right before you pull, then rip it off the ground. That helps me feel it more in my glutes/hams.
Also be sure that you’re sitting way back on your heels.
try stiff leg deads if u wanna really feel em
throw in some back extensions and get your body to fire the right muscles
Yeah, also when you’re doing your stiff-legged deadlifts, make sure you’re not doing a romanian deadlift and moving your hips. This will help focus on your hams… You’ll have to go lower in weight obviously.
Here’s an example of the RDL:
And also, you can do your SLDLs standing on a stepper or something that gets you off the ground some that gives you a greater range of movement and will give you a better stretch. Just be careful to keep your back straight.
