I’ve been doing Deads now for about 3 months, and I’ve gone from 145 to doing 325 now (for triples) and notice that I have a bit of soreness in my lower back. Its not pain and doesn’t bother me much, but I was just wondering if I’m supposed to have this soreness?
To clarify, its not pain, but more of a soreness like I feel in my legs also after deads. Will this eventually go away as I strengthen my lower back, or am I doing something wrong here?
I see nothing wrong with such a fast increase in weight. Much of that increase will have come from improving your technique. I have been training the deadlift hard for 3 months. Day 1: 135 felt tough…i was all over the place. Hit 400 earlier this week. I did that through a combination of improving my technique and hitting the correct supplemental exercises.
I must say i feel very little in my lower back during or after my deadlift sessions. I have noted my upper back needs particular attention and have adjusted my program to incorporate more rows.
Your weakest link may be your lower back. In which case, seek to strenghten it with back extensions, reverse hypers etc. (You will only ever be as strong as your weakest bodypart).
The pain you experience sounds like muscle tiredness, so you may be doing too much deadlifting or too many reps at too high an intensity.
Either way, strengthen the lower back and ask yourself if your program is sound from any intensity and volume perspective. Read everything by Louie Simmons to help you to figure this out.
