Hi, there!

I'm very new to the CrossFit system, and I've been doing the beginner's routine suggested in the CrossFit Journal. I'm into my second week.

Thus far, I've been experiencing pain in my lower back, and I think it's from the dead lifts. I'm only using 135 pounds, but I'm struggling with it. I'm not sure if it's just muscle weakness, or narcolepsy-related fatigue (I've been narcoleptic since 1993). My piriformis is very flexible, but my quads are tight (I would almost say hypertonic), so I'm wondering if this imbalance is affecting my technique.

Any help, tips, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
