    Deadlifts vs everything else

    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?

    Use singles for deadlifting. Problem fixed.
