Question, where is your foot placement at? In the videos it is hard for me to tell, but they look extremely narrow (closer than shoulder width). You might get some relief if you bring them out a tad bit wider to about shoulder width apart.

I know that helped me when I first started pulling, my feet were way too close together and it caused some lower back issues.

They're about shoulder width maybe a little inside. I attached a couple other vids that you can check out my form. The feeling I get in my erectors only happens a day or 2 after desdlifts along with my traps...only thing I'll feel during or right after is my glutes. It's basically the same feeling of doms i have in other muscle group..starting to think it's not a big deal and I should expect some soreness in my erectors being newer to squats and deadlifts.http://youtu.be/zUqTEBXEV6c. ........ http://youtu.be/pM-l4XXBPxo

^ Curving low back is what causes it for me. Whether it's squat/deadlift/row. Foam rolling for a couple minutes when getting home helps, but what really helps is a 45min walk the following day.

So you're saying your mid/lower/traps erectors never get doms from deadlifts if you maintain good form?

They get sore. We're talking about excessive soreness that is not in balance with the rest, and how to fix.

My heels have usually been about 7inches apart and have little leg drive and felt no excessive soreness, but I don't do a lot of volume with it (1x5 work weight). Most guys here have been at it a while and lifting real well, so they'll know. From my point of view if there isnt pain, just stick do it, maybe take away a little volume and gradually add it back in.

It is even very noticeable when laying down and sometimes hard to sleep. just wondering if this is normal doms from deadlifts or not..i alwats hear that if your lower back is sore your form is off. . I'm also squatting 3 times a week so my lower back really doesn't get a break....everytime I go lift though I have no discomfort and have never had any pain while desdlifting or any other lifts at all and it actually feels better while I'm doing squats, bent over rows, ohp etc and while deadlifting i mostly only feel my hamstrungs and glutes on fire after a set and not lower back.wondering if anyone else has experienced uncomfortable lower back soreness similar to mine and if I should be concerned. Here are a couple deadlift vids of me also. http://youtu.be/WRnqxCe4QTc ... http://youtu.be/l-h3g_Deuxs
Hello,
Well from you post I see you are taxing you lower back when you stated that you squat 3 times and dead lift as well. I found out in my own experience you may want to dead lift every other week and work you legs once a week, this will save you lower back and you see more results in your training for example
this way I alternate :

Leg day "A"
Squat
Leg Press
Leg Ext
leg curl

Leg Day "B"
Dead Lift
Leg press
leg Ext
now as far DOMS well that comes with the territory, I pull last Sunday and yes I still have the soreness and the pump as long as you can still do you daily activities like go to work and you do not feel pain like you can not straighten up or walk you should be alright so "rub some dirt on kid and cowboy up as they say! just remember some you DOMS is also due to over work so give this a try.

A couple things:

1. Form: 'Shorts' is right - you could benefit from widening your stance a bit and turning your toes out slightly (something I noticed 'Shorts' does). Too much emphasis on rounding your back for my taste. There are a lot of healthy and strong as hell round back deadlifters!!

2. Ice baths: submerse in ice for 15 to 20 minutes as soon as possible after max work.

3. Seems like this isn't a popular theme around these parts, but, you are hitting your mid and lower back way too much. Three squats and a pull in one week is a load. I'm assuming your sans juice. I'd cut out or at least alternate "Big week / Little week".

Being sore is a good thing...imo

When i first started DL after doing so many reps, i could barely move or get in a comfortable relaxed position...But it eventually went away..

Same with squats and quads being on fire
