    hey guys,

    i just recently started doing deadlifts after a break. I started at 135 for 12 reps then at the end of 4 sets i was doing 245 for 6 reps.

    After the last set, I found it extremely hard to get my back to not feel overly worked when doing other excercises just by sitting normally. More simply, when I sat in any other position other than a normal 90 angle with my back, it felt like it was borderline painful.

    This confused me because I have watched countless videos on form and have even made it so that my partner watches my form with just the bar right before i load on the weight.

    Is this a sign that I'm starting off with too much weight? Or could it still be an issue about form?

    Maybe it's just normal muscle fatigue because you haven't worked out that muscle in a long time.

    Also, I would probably ditch the higher rep deadlifts. IMO you don't need to do 12 reps. Form starts to break down with higher reps, even though the weight is quite light.

    ya, sounds like good old fatigue. my lower back usually feels dead after starting up deadlifts, good mornings or stiff leg deadlifts after not doing them for a while

    Could be back pumps also, record yourself to watch your form incase you are sloppy without really knowing it

    yeah lower back pumps are starting to bother me lately...on squats and dls. But more form is good (i hope), is it normal that i get them?

    Deadlifts SHOULD wreck your lower back.

    Harden the fuck up.
