try band assisted negatives.
or do more deadlifts…strength will come in time
I’d also love to try bands, but I could find bands anywhere in my country.
I’d love to do more deadlifts if it wasn’t for the reason why I opened this topic, which is my aching back.
sorry, overlooked the part where you mentioned deadlifts hurting your back too.
Do you think you might have a disc injury? Things that fixed my back (herniation l5-s1):
single leg work
hip mobility stuff (including static stretching for the hip flexors)
restricting range of lumbar motion
Disc injury? Hmm, well my back stops getting sore as soon as my hammies aren’t sore. I doubt it’s just my back, but I’ll have it checked anyway. Those are helpful advice, BTW. Thanks.
