I’m learning deadlift and have read some of the guides on here… in regards to correct posture, flat back, heels close to the bar, etc… and i think from some standpoints my form has improved a lot and isn’t half-bad with light weights now… but I pretty much always graze my shins with the knurling on the bar on the way up. I don’t hit my shins very hard or anything like that, it’s more of a rub but the knurling on the bar rubbing against shin on each rep has the cumulative effect of scraping/beating up my shins pretty damn good especially when wearing shorts.
Last workout, I had to stop because they were getting beet red and felt scraped and I feared they were going to start bleeding… and not good gym ettiquette to say the least to be bleeding all over the equipment!
Anyway, is this shin rubbing an indicator that I am doing deadlifts incorrectly? Or is part of the territory of deadlifting? any suggestions how to deal with it?
