Ok so this is about week 6 into my deadlifting career. Today was my first time using an olympic bench bar. I used to do it with a standard curl bar at the rec room at my apartment complex, just because one of my friends used the same thing to deadlift.
Anyways, I've always ended up with more of a back pain then a back burning sensation when doing deadlifts, although my strength has increased dramatically (went from a 45 lb on each side of the the curl bar, to 2 45's on each side) the bar supposedly ways 20 pounds, so that put my deadlift at 200 pounds. Well I figured something was wrong with my form, because I wasn't getting a good burn, more just a pain after completing the workout.
So today I started with an olympic bar (standard 45lb deal) and started at 135 lbs, figuring I get the form down with the bigger bar. And eventually made my way up to having 70 pounds on each side. I kind of tweaked my form each time, but found it wasn't until my 5th set (I'm doing rugged ripped and dense 2.0 routine) that instead of a back pain, I actually got the good back burn that I get in other lifts.
Hopefully your still reading, despite my apparent 5 paragraph essay of a post!
I've looked at forms on the internet, and it's one of those things that I can mimic at least motion of, but I really don't have the proper form 100% down, I don't really remember what I did in my 5th set that was different from my first 4.
Basically if someone would be so kind as to give me a run through of what the lift should "feel" like, where I should be centering my weight, etc. That would be great.
