Deadlifts are an exercise i love but its hard for me to stay consistantly doing them with all of the other football stuff such as cleans which i hate. i can do sumos more often than conventional, but i like conventional more and im stronger conventional
so i went and deadlifted today (conventional) and i pulled really really well. i could have possibly pulled 500 but i didnt go any higher than 405. the reason is my lower back kept rounding.
its like i would get a great drive up then about half way up it would just round out which i hate cause i know its bad form and will hurt me later on.
as i went on i widene my base to just about shoulder width or possibly slightly outside shoulder width and it help me keep my back more strict but it still rounded more than I want.
do i just need to get back into doing them more often to keep my form and so my lower back gets stronger and stays strict like i like it or is it something else i need to concentrate on in form?
i know my lower back cant be weak cause i do good mornings, SLDL, RDL, and weighted hyperextensions out the ass so i know it gets worked and is strong.
im thinking it is just more of a mechanics thing that i need to get back into. any other oppinions on what it might be?
