    Yeah, i didn't think so.. i think my form isn't proper.

    on week 3 of christophers base recommendations, i'm at 110/150/110, which isn't bad considering i started at like 60/90/90.

    ibi'mweak... believe me, i know it.

    The muscles in your lower back/hams should be sore, not the joints in your lower back. Work on your form.

    Yeah, its more of a sore feeling, not necessarily a pain. I'm trying my best to keep my back at like a 45 degree angle and my legs at a 90, and lifting with legs, not back/arms.

    Not necessarily sore, but feeling pumped or used, not a specific shooting joint pain. You know what I meant

    Are you supposed to NOT BE SORE after heavy deadlifting. Its not called DOMS for nothing.

    It's cool.. can't really get too sore when all you're deadlifting is a pile of stuffed animals off your bed when you make it in the morning :mamoru:

    if it's just muscle soreness like you feel after other work outs i wouldn't think twice about it, if it feels more like spine or sharp pain then let it heal then go lighter on your dead lift till you know you have the form down IMO

    after doing dl's with any significant amount of weight your muscles are going to feel sore.

    well, i don't always but i definetely feel a pump. when I first started doing them I felt muscle soreness quite often. Either way if he is feeling a little soreness it is not that unusual. Or I might be wrong because all I really have is personal experience to talk from.

    You're used to it and your recovery time is much faster. When I was doing CP and doing compound movements 3-4 days a week I stopped getting as sore as I used to even though the amount of weight was going up.

    go light until you have someone who knows wtf they're doing watch your form and make sure it's pretty good. after that, steadily move up weight. keep good form, i wouldn't suggest sacrificing good form for more weight, just likely to hurt yourself.
