I’ve never tried any variation of the Deadlift, I have always wanted to master the original lift first. I have had this niggling pain when I get to the heavier weights, just above my glutes. When I press down on them, the pain goes away, or when I’m active it does also.
After my Deadlift session yesterday the pain/soreness lasted all day, it was not excruciating but still was there. Today I’ve woken up and it’s gone.
I have it sometimes on squats but I know why this is (usually by leaning forward as I get to heavier weights also)and can usually make a concious effort to correct it.
I was told by a physiotherapist to give rack pulls a try due to my tall frame.
A friend of mine has suggested I strengthen my hamstrings. By switching to box squats also, as they will help support me during the Deadlift.
But I’ll keep trying and reading up on this, I’ll post another video after my next workout.
Since I started pulling around the 110 kg mark this has happened, so I will drop the weight and concentrate on the form.
