Re: Deadlift soreness?

It depends how bad it is.

I'd work on weaknesses ifyou're injured (if you can work on them without aggravating stuff).

Re: Deadlift soreness?

hmmm... maybe some time to work on some deadhang pull ups and bench press?

I'm wondering about doing bottom to bottoms (not tabata) to work on squat ROM, or doing some other squat therapies, but not completely sure yet. It doesn't hurt when I squat with good form (back straight, maintaining lumbar curve, etc.). Any suggestions?

Re: Deadlift soreness?

I know the feeling. Stretch, stay active, tennis ball the paraspinal muscle where it hurts. It will eventually loosen up and the pain will subside.

Re: Deadlift soreness?

from my experience if you are hurting the next day that is normal, if you are hurting straight after the workout - especially in the lower back that is definetly not normal.

its probably a small technique issue that will be easily sorted, but im no expert

Re: Deadlift soreness?

2 days after, my whole upper back feels like the only cure is a massage.
probably true

Re: Deadlift soreness?

Do you workout at an affiliate or on your own? Do you have access to an experienced coach?

I keep getting sI pain and stiffness after deadlifts, and finally the coach at the affiliate noticed I'm doing a bit more of a SLDL than I should be. We are going to start working on correcting my form and hope for the best.

Re: Deadlift soreness?

I've been to a lvl 1 cert, but doing DLs with a PVC pipe and someone watching is very different than doing it on my own and under a load. I wish that there was an affiliate near me none in Tokyo at the moment. I'm thinking about going to a local powerlifting gym and getting some help.

I also think my back angle is off. Too close to parallel. I'm going to try lowering my butt a bit more next time.

Re: Deadlift soreness?

How exactly are you guys using a tennis ball or softball on your lower back? I can see how you would be able to balance your weight on a long foam roller, but on something as small as a ball it seems like it wouldn't work.

My lower back is sore from setting a deadlift PR yesterday, so I'm trying to figure out how to do this...

Re: Deadlift soreness?

Hey what's up Adam. We should try to get together for a workout or something. I can check your deadlift. I may not be the greatest candidate but I'm sure I may be able to spot if you are not maintaining your lumbar or something. Hit me. I'm on Facebook too. You can pull me out of Jamies friends.

Re: Deadlift soreness?

Thanks Andrew, I would really appreciate that. Things are kind of hectic right now with baby #2 coming, but I would definitely want to meet up sometime to get a form check done. I'm feeling a lot better now, and I think my problem before was starting too close to parallel with the floor. I'm working on the 'angry gorilla back', and that seems to have helped. Definitely need a check done by somebody though.
