    deadlift form

    hey first post, ive been prowling around for a little while soaking up useful information.

    my question is about deadlift form, i recently just started deadlifting again after reading up on what a valuable exercise it is. the reason i quit deadlifting was because it was killing my lower back, due to my awful technique.

    well ive been watching lots of videos, and going lightweight to try to get my form down, and i feel like im doing alot better job at keeping my back straight. after my last few deadlift sessions, really just trying to perfect my form, ive noticed relatively no lowerback soreness, but alot of sorness in my hamstrings/glutes....is this an indicator that my form has improved? obviously i understand no one can tell me for sure without actually seeing my form....but are the hamstrings/glutes where i should feel the burn the most?

    thanks alot

    A video would help, but feeling like your activating your glutes/hams and not pulling with all back is a good sign.

    for the conventional deadlift, yes, i find my hams/glutes tend to be sore after a good session.
    however, if you were doing straight leg deadlifts (also known as romanian deadlifts), then your back would be sore.
    but a vid would be the best to judge.

    yea i was just doing conventional. i know it makes it tough to help me out much without a video, but unfortunately i dont have any equipment to make one....

    yeah I'm pretty sure the hams and glutes are supposed to be sore after that and traps too. even though my legs haven't ever been sore after deadlifting.
