Re: My lower back is weak (deadlifts)

Try to find Rippetoe's deadlift setup video on youtube, shouldn't be too hard to find. I would post the link but my youtube suddenly stopped working.

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 off the shoes, but that was after taping myself doing deads.
