hey guys, im back at doing deadlifts after a very long hiatus due to back problems. i started off with a very low weight, just 2 plates to work on my form. had a bunch of fellow lifters watch my form, they told me what i was doing wrong, and worked on it until they said i had it down. now their advice could be wrong, but i watched myself in the mirror, which i wouldnt advise as i pulled a muscle on my neck/back lol… and it looked good, plus i compared what they said to textbook advice on here.
my entire back was really sore the next couple days, but my hamstrings werent too bad. i figured ok, i know my back is weak so thats fine. yesterday, i was pulling 275 at 5x5 without much strain and felt as though my form was still good… ass down, chest up and out, looking up at the ceiling. today my back/traps is sore as hell, not so much in my hamstrings.
does this mean i am not doing them correctly? could me doing hang cleans and front squats have my hams so they wont get too sore? i will make a video tomorrow… maybe i should have waited to post this haha
