Re: My lower back is weak (deadlifts)

Per earlier recommendations in my power clean thread, I have. I don't have VFF's yet, so I warm up by jogging my dog around the block in my running shoes. I remembered later in my workout to take...

Re: My lower back is weak (deadlifts)

Thanks. There is a lot of good info in that post. I just subscribed to the journal yesterday and I'll look for stuff from Kelly Starrett.

I'll work on setting the weight down more slowly. I've...

Re: My lower back is weak (deadlifts)

GREAT video. I just watched from minute 31 on. Now I'm going to go back and starting from the beginning.

My lower back is weak (deadlifts)
