Ok Al - I'll play it by ear. Even tho I do not like deadlifting light, I'll do it if it doesn't irritate the back. I have been stopping at the first sign of trouble though. IE - on the vid above, it didn't hurt until the last rep when I was lowering it. Thus, I have to remember to stop deadlifting way before I'm ready to. Maybe lifting light will help - we'll see.
That is why this injury has been so tough to work around. The back tricks me into thinking everything is OK by not hurting until the last rep or so. When it does start hurting, I do stop.

Thanks Steve. To be anywhere near you on any lift is a special accomplishment for me.
