    Odd Back Soreness from Deadlifting

    Well I deadlifted this morning for the 2nd week in a row after taking a few months off. I focused as much as I possibly could on my form and reped some pretty heavy weight for me. Now I noticed after doing the lifts that I had more soreness in my middle back RIGHT erector spine muscle and didn't feel much on the left side. Now I just have some weakness there but more weakness or soreness I guess is in my lower right back.

    Now could this be due to bad form? forcing the weight a little too high? or something else? I just want to prevent a injury before I do something crazy.

    That's where I always feel it from deads. It's usually on both sides though. Perhaps you were imbalanced somehow?
    If you think you weren't, then I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.

    I don't know. I really tried to balance myself but maybe I was pushing my right side more, if I was my form was off but thats all I was focusing on, more than the weight was my form and it felt right when I did them.

    Now the only thing I remember is I switched from a regular grip to a reverse grip on my last set, maybe that made a difference. But than some guy made a thread the other day asking about this and everybody said that isnt it.

    Did you use mixed grip?

    Probably the issue. Switch which hand is supinated/pronated each set.

    Yup I used it on the last set only and thats when I felt the soreness too I think. But both sides feel about the same now so its good.

    could be your sciatic nerve but it runs down your back and when it gets pinched or pressure is put on it it hurts like a bitch, any time i get a good pump in my back lately mine goes nuts.. just an idea, the mixed grip sounded very possible too.

    I'm sure it wasn't a nerve it was just odd soreness I probably forgot how good it feels. But I'm always worried my back will get messed up lifting this stuff which is prolly why I hesitated.
