Make sure you aren’t overtraining the deadlift, and if the pain doesn’t go away after a few weeks back off from sumo deadlifting or anything else that aggrivates it for a few weeks (or move your stance in till the pain goes away). Also, if it hurts while you are doing the exercise don’t deadlift sumo that day, not only will you aggrivate it but you won’t be able to lift as much as you normally do anyways.[/quote]
I am new to all this, so how much training would overtraining be? Is it different for each person? How can I tell if I am overtaining something?
Currently, I deadlift twice a weak when I do my lower body work. Does this seem like too much? Should I substitute Squats and/or lunges for it every now and again?
Also, this is off topic to some degree, but I recently had an experience doing seated military presses. Basically, I could do 115lbs 10x3. The next time I went to lift, I could basrely get through the 5th set. Is such a decline in performance a sign of ovetraining?
Thanks so much for your help so far!
