I deadlifted for the first time in 5 or 6 weeks this morning.
Since the first week without deadlifting I have had little to no back issues. This is with Back squatting twice a week, front squats, powercleans, light good mornings and OHPing once a week.
Also, last week I tried some light high rep SLDLs and had no issues.
This morning however, I started feeling the discomfort after my second deadlift set at 185. I realize when I pull at the top I really snap my hips forwards/upper back backwards. And when doing this I bring my back past the point of straight up and lean bacwards. I do this very rapidly.
I am starting to wonder if this isn't what is causing the problems.
This video was filmed on Jan. 19, the last time I deadlifted and it hurt the shit out of my lower back. It was done at a relatively low weight, yet it hurt.
As you can see I pop at the top. I wonder if this "pop" is causing the issue and I need to concentrate on just standing straight up without that "pop", if that makes any sense.....
