Is it safe to say I'm doing them wrong?
It doesn't rub when I do them. I'm still trying to get my form right though.
I'm new at DL'ing but it usually doesnt rub my legs until above the knee.
Today I made sure it touched all the way up, and the lifts felt easier than usual...then again I'm in my first week of 5/3/1 so I'm not using much weight.
after rereading it, I dont know if this post was worth a shit
depending on your form, it can be an indication the bar is pulling your body forward (usually accompanied by hips moving up faster than shoulders)
If it doesn't most likely your hips are coming up early. The further the bar is from your shins the larger the moment arm on your low back too (more stress).
as long as you leave some blood on the bar your doing it right.
