I've really been focusing on lifting technique the last few weeks. As such, my form on deadlifts, cleans, squats, and particularly overhead squats has improved greatly.

However, I am having a problem lowering weights back to the ground. I am fine dropping back to waist level, but when I try to reverse the deadlift move to go below my knees, I feel my back rounding. I know that its bad form and I've been feeling a little sore.

Just as a frame of reference, I've had people observe my lifting (upward) form and report that I keep the appropriate arch in my lower spine.

Any help appreciated
