Hey guys! I posted here a while back regarding a back issue I had trouble with. Shout out to Aragorn for all the advice! Added all the extra work for my weaknesses.
If people could help clarify some questions I have:
- Do I keep glutes tight throughout the entire rep?
- How do I keep a neutral low back? Cues?
- I find that as I get up to heavier weight, I have trouble keeping tightness in my lats and keeping chest up, realizing that I lose tightness unconsciously midway through a heavy rep. Tips?

*I am using very light weight still as I am trying to avoid any irritation of the low back, starting up again next week.
In the video, only after a few reps with light weight, I already feel the familiar tightness/soreness in my low back. To me, that indicates that I may not be using glutes/hamstrings properly as before my injury. Is this normal?
If a better quality video is needed or with more reps, please do not hesitate to tell me, this is my first time filming myself!
