I’ve got a tight lower back which has been sore for a couple of weeks now and I’d like advice on what to do about it.
I’ve been deadlifting 3 times a week for a couple of months now with supporting exercises.
My reps are doubles/singles. I start light and build to a relaxed sub max. I always stay fresh. Never bust a gut trying to lift beyond my capabilities. And I’m careful with form.
First 6 weeks were great. Now I’ve got a tight lower back and low grade pain. Could it be I’m a newbie and my lower back is the weakest link?
I’ve started targeting my lower back to see if I need to stengthen it with Romanian deadlifts, back raises and core work.
Should I take a few days off from deadlifting till the soreness recedes or do I continue, being mindful of weight and how I feel?
Grateful for your advice.
