I messed up a while back by rounding my back doing deadlifts. I took some time off to heal. After awhile I went back to lifting and did good. But last night when I lifted I kept finding hard to bend at the hips and kept rounding my back. I ended up hurting my back again. Do you guys have any tips on how to train myself to always bend at the hips and not lower back? Any help at all. Thanks guys.
Can you expand on what you mean by "kept finding hard to bend at the hips"? Were you aware of any tightness in your hamstrings or glutes or whatnot? Did you feel pain when attempting to bend at the hips?
You have to correct your form. If you are referring to deadlifting you want to lock your lumbar region in a neutral position. If you cannot do that it may be due to excessively tight hamstrings etc.
I agree with Fuzzy more explanation is needed.

ETA: I will try really stretching my hamstrings and try deadlifts again to see if it makes a difference.
