I've been having pain associated with bent over rows. My back workout starts off with deadlifts, then either chins or pullups, then bent over rows. Here's how my row goes:
The bar starts off on a stand about waist high. I pick it up, step back, set my feet, arch my back, and bend over to just above parallel to the floor (my upper body makes a 100-110 degree angle with my legs, and I don't round my back). My hands are a little narrower than a medium- to wide-grip bench press and are facing towards me. I then pull the weight to my stomach/lower chest, lower, then repeat.
The trouble comes when I stand up. I stand up slowly, and feel a little hint of pain in my lower back on the right side. It feels almost like my love handle is hurting. Well, that pain isn't bad. When I rack the weight, and step back, it hurts like hell to stand up straight, but once I do, I'm fine. This used to be a minor problem (i.e. very little, if any pain, just a funny feeling), but today was pretty bad.
Any suggestions on what could be wrong?
