How sore should my back get from deadlifts? If I'm getting super sore does it mean my form is wrong or is it just part of deadlifting and pushing hard. I'm not out-of-commission sore. But I definately feel it in my back tonight and I expect I'll feel it even more in the next few days.
Just starting with any major compound movement will leave you sore as hell.
Check your form, either by video clip here or a respected source at the gym. And if the form is good....just deal with it. As your DLing experience goes up, the soreness will greatly reduce.
