The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    lower back

    Ok i notice my lower back after i dead lift is weird feeling. let me explain in my lower back right over my spine it feels REAL tight when i bend over and have a hump in my back BUT if i bend at the hips it does not do this. it does not hurt just feels like its streching because its so tight i do not feel it while siting or standing just while im bent over and my back bends. ALSO i recently had a lower back injury nothing bad just did something i took off 2 weeks felt 100% better. but i was just wondering is this normal does this happen to you.
    ps im not very comfortable with deadlifts,rackpulls,or romanian deadlifts im TERRIFIED of them

    I'm having a hard time picturing what you're describing. A good starting point though would be to post a video of yourself deadlifting so we can tell you whether or not there's a form issue there.

    If you believe that you may have an injury then you should speak with a medical professional. If what you are feeling is soreness from lifting then that is not uncommon, but the fact that you had a recent injury I would be careful with how you train.

    Do you wear a belt when you deadlift? And have you worked with anyone on the technique since you are not very comfortable with that lift?

    Sounds like typical DOMs, then.

    If it is DOMS you should probably try ETS from the board sponsor. I have no stake in it, but I basically used the same ingredients individually before I knew about the product. Really helps with DOMS.
