I deadlifted for the fourth time, I think, yesterday and had the pain. The pain started a little bit the time before yesterday and was a bit worse yesterday.
I’m going to try to cut my weight a bit, make sure that my form is good, and progress slower. I jumped from 135lbs to 205lbs in only a few workouts, so that could be bad.
It’s weird because in any other exercise, you can either lift the weight or you can’t. In the deadlift, you need to watch your form and make sure that you’re lifting the weight properly.
When people say that you’re not supposed to round your back when deadlifting, what exactly do they mean? When I deadlift, my lower back is arched up, but my shoulders are kind of pulled forward because I can’t really keep my back shrugged back with that much weight.
The Spinal Erectors are obviously stronger than the Rhomboids. At the top, I pull my shoulders back. I keep my face looking forward the entire time. Am I doing it right?
