    Strong back, but poor back endurance

    Ive been wondering about this. When I do deadlifts or low rep squats, my back is plenty strong for heavy weights and low reps.

    But when I do higher rep RDLs or anything else with constant tension (like back ext.) my back fatigues fairly quickly and way more than anything else.

    Has anyone experienced this? Does this mean I need to spend more time doing back ext. and RDLs?
