Hey I began deadlifting in the past few weeks. I’m having problems with the bar scraping against my shins in the concentric portion. Last time I deadlifted, it wasn’t too bad and I just got scratched a little. This time, the bar rubbed off those scabs and I bled pretty badly today, even though I was wearing pants.
I suspect it has something to do with my torso and limb lengths, but I was wondering if anyone else had this problem? It’s actually pretty painful (especially when I showered afterwards - stung really bad) and I want to avoid this again. Is this something that I just have to work around with long socks and pants or is there anything that can be done?
By the way, I’m 6’ 1", moderately tall so that may have something to do with it, too.
Thanks a lot.
