been reading for a looong time, finally found a reason to post.
I'm finding towards the final set or two of my dead lift training very taxing on my lower back. No actual pain (other than DOMS) but it does feel like my lower back is doing a LOT of work.
I lift from a starting position where my hips are fairly high, and I'm concerned that my lower back may be rounding and I'm risking injury.
I train alone, and there's no side mirror (not that i really want to turn my head on the really tought reps) so I haven't really got anyone to critique my form.
Is this normal for heavy dead lift training? Or should I back the weight off a little bit and concentrate on starting with my hips lower?
Like i said - i'm in no actual pain, only that my lower back is very worked/tired for the rest of the day, and maybe a little in to the next.
Any help or comments appreciated.
