    Make sure you get someone knowledgeable to show you good form. My lower back joints hurt like crazy until I realized my form was shitty.

    Its hard to get good form with just the bar though. He should start with a weight that feels somewhat heavy, but not too heavy. Something like half of what you think your 1 rep max might be. Erroring on the side of too light is better than too heavy of course, but I wouldn't use just teh bar for more very long

    YOu need to work on your form then. More then likely you arn't keeping your chest out with an arc in your back like you should.

    no, the SLDLs worked my back alot when i first started doinng em, and they still work it some. Pullthroughs are another back exercise that are verry nice.
    AND WTF at only once per week...:ugh2:

    SLDL's and DL's are two different movements. One is primarily for legs, other is primarily for [lower] back, so don't just do one, do both since they are working two different muscle groups.

    I do each once a week... or maybe SLDL's twice a week (one heavy, a few days later I lift lighter)

    both, SLDL's on leg day, DL's every 2 weeks
