I’ve just been doing deadlifts for 2 weeks and going relaly light cuz its a scary exercise for me… I did a plate finally… 135 lbs and easily did 5 reps (real easy). I’m scraping my shins on the way up and using my hammies to lift basically and glutes to lock out at the top.
Problem is when i lock out and shove my hips in my lower back kinda takes some of the load just locking in place and staying straight. After 5 reps my lower back is definitely tight and I feel like 1 mm shorter than normal. Stretching out like trying to touch the ceiling with my hands seems to loosen it up
Doesnt hurt but definitely feels weird… What am I doing wrong?? It feels like a pump in the lower back and a scary feeling.
