I did deadlifts for the first time today at the gym. I warmed up with one set, using just the olympic bar, then wacked on a 10kg plate on each side and did 3 sets of 8.
it wasnt very easy, and it wasnt too hard either. I kept my back nice n straight (or rather slightly arched, as it should be) and the lifts went quite smooth without any pain at all. i just struggled on the last rep of each set, which was good.
but having come home now, it feels as though there is a cramp in the right lat, at my back.
i dont think its anything to do with bones, cuz when i stretch, it gets slightly better, but then comes back again. also, its obviously only on one side, so it cant be the spine or discs or anything can it??
tomorrow is my squat day. hopefully if this pain goes by 2mara i shud be ok. if it persists, du think i shud do squats or any training 2mara on that note??
