Hello all. I’m new to the forums but I’ve been reading T-mag for a while. Great site, I hope the forums are as helpful.
On to the question. I am adding deadlifts to my routine along with squats since they are the best lower body exercises out there.
Everytime I deadlift I am feeling it in my back. Not really lower back either, but below the shoulder blades right about where the ribs end. Is this normal or is my form off?
I had my girlfriend watch, and I am keeping my back straight and my shoulders back. Am I possibly bending at the waist too much or is this just part of building up my body?
I’m fairly tall (6’3") so maybe my midsection just needs to get whipped into shape. I started lifting seriously only a couple months ago so I’m pretty new to this.
Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to get as much detail in there as possible.
