    If lower back soreness heals after 2-3 days does it mean that it was muscle soreness, and not injury soreness?

    Im asking because its my third time doing deadlifts and its terribly hard to know whether my form is correct or not.

    Don't worry about it to much, just make sure you're not rounding your back.

    if you just started deadlifts, your back is gonna hurt. lower the weight to get comfortable with the form (even if your ego takes a hit).

    How far apart is deadlift supposed to be away from bench/squat numbers?

    b:160/s:200/d:245

    does that sound ok apart from being weak weight? :hs:

    you're doing a 245 deadlift on your 3rd time?

    your weights seem way off...

    Your deads seem high compared to your other lifts, seeing as you've only done them 3 times.
    I guess to get a better picture, how long have you been doing squats and bench?

    weights are fine then, but I'd still suggest you back the weight off the deads until you learn proper form.
    but it's your body, do what you want.

    well I guess deadlifts just works for some people. I started out with quite a bit of weight also, on the other hand i'm busting ass to get those squat #'s up

    I am always confused when people can't tell the difference between a muscle being sore and it being injured. Is this normal? I can always tell the difference.

    lower back pain from deads will be the same as all other muscle pain

    If it's sharp and comes/goes rapidly it's injury, if its a dull pain or burning it's just soreness

    if it is a muscle it just feels sore like any other muscle, if you pulled something or hurt something it hurts like any other body part.
