I’ve recently started deadlifting again, after a hiatus from the weightroom while I was training for a marathon.
I’m finding that I’m aching quite a lot in the lower back area the day after deadlifting. I’ve read all the stock articles on correct form for deadlifts that have been on here before and I’m pretty sure I’ve got the concept of how to perform the lift correctly. This didn’t happen to me before the marathon.
Can anyone suggest what I should be looking for in the mirror as I lift to ensure that I’m not putting too much pressure on my lower back? I think my form looks pretty good as I’m doing the lift, but maybe I’m missing something.
I appreciate that it’s hard to give me advice without seeing a video of me lifting, but if anyone has experienced this before and has solved the problem for themselves, then any tips would be useful.
