I have been doing stiff legged deadlifts with no problem, so I decided to try and bend my knees a bit.. they said it was better for your lower back.. and I hurt my lower back on my 2nd set trying this new form.
Are deadlifts really worth it? Especially wHen you hear about all this herniated disk crap, and bending of the spine..
When I am doing deadlifts, lets say stiff legged, they say you need to keep your back arched etc. Well I try to do that by looking up and stuff.. but when I'm holding 200LBS of weight it tends to pull my sholders down.. I can still lookup but I"m not sure if I'm rounding my back. Should I lower weight? But if I lower weight then I won't work my muscles.
