Is it just me or does anyone else get a majorly tight and stiff lower back from deadlifting? My form if I say so myself is pretty good, but no matter how much or little I lift the next day Im in pain (not bad pain as thought I've wrecked myself) and find any other leg movements for the next couple of days pretty much impossible?
I usually do. I attribute it to the pump. It just feels odd to get it in your lower back compared to biceps or chest or something. I personally like the feeling a lot, it just takes some getting used to.
He was saying that you probably would respond that you didnt feel deads in your glutes, indicating a problem with glute mobility and or activation, but he posted that before your response it just showed up after.
I have a long spine, proportional to my legs, so I have the same issue; I solved the pain issue by doing just as much ab work as I do deadlifting/lower back work. Make sure you work your abs the same session, and you'll watch the pain and tightness melt away.
It's needed from time to time to cleanse the soul.
Things aren't bad.... down to 100kg now, gave up on being a fat bastard. Managed to squat 220kg in just a belt quite comfortably last week... have been doing box squats with a fair bit of band tension and they seem to be really helping.
Everything else is pretty much same as due to the weight loss, but I'm pushing my deadlift hard now and am on course to hit a 2x bodyweight bench this weekend at a bench comp.
Your sarcasm has not gone unoticed! But its an altogher different level of soreness constantly from deadlifting, whereas to get this level of DOMS from legs or chest would usualy require a come back after a lay off or new type of training!
