I'm only 4 weeks into a program and i'm finding that the Deadlifts cause my lower back to get so tight that i can't do anything else i liked doing.... no running, soccer, squash !!
Anyone else struggle to recover from DL ?? any advice ??
That happened to me at first - I used to get extreme lower back pump. I found as I got more used to it I get it less and less. Only time I tend to get it now is if I completely forget to use my legs and basically SLDL the weight.

You are probably putting too much pressure on your lower back try putting a vid up?

I was the same until I smashed the 45 degree back raises for a fair while, now I dont notice it often.
Could be form like Kiff said.
Squat briefs only 625 @ 210
Bench geared 525 @ 210
Deadlift geared 650 @ 220

Could be a form issue. Post a video if possible. What sets/reps are you doing?
6'2 - 105kg (231lb)
Use singles for deadlifting. Problem fixed.

I've been doing the HCT-12 A-B-A program so im doing DL 3 times every two weeks.
I've got a deload squat / DL day tomorrow so I'll take some vids.
I was so fatigued and tired i ignored the vids and just tried to get some quality work in, i almost skipped the workout completely! I'll spend the weekend trying to freshen up then on wednesday i'll post some vids in my log.
