I generally work out by myself but recently I had an opportunity to have someone check my form on deadlift. Apparently, I'm really rounding my lower back. I've always had really tight hamstrings so I'm sure that's the problem. And, I'm working on it. However, my deadlift is really improving and I hate to drop the weight back down. My question is: should I drop the weight until I can get my lower back flat?, stay at the current weight and try to fight through it?, or punt on deadlifts until I can get more flexibility in my hamstrings? {The last may be a lifetime venture.} Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
