Default Back pain/soreness from deadlifts

I'm posting this in the beginners forum because I'm pretty much a beginner with deadlifts.

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.

I am new at DL's as well. I am always sore, but it is more of muscle sore and not bone or joint sore. I did DL's today and I am still a little sore. I will be fine in the morning.

Definately a muscle soreness. But like back pain muscle sore vs. other muscle sore. Stiff and tender vs. the standard DOMS you get. Of course it's probably not DOMS yet...that'll come in another day or so.

What?! And let you see my chicken legs?!

Ha ha...j/k.

We're technology deficient. No iphone or anything. I don't have any type of video recorder. Maybe I'll see if someone I know who comes to the gym can record me. That would be a good way to verify with you guys.

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.

Are you doing any assistance work (good mornings, hyperextentions, etc.)? These will help strengthen the lower posterior chain.

Also VERY IMPORTANT! You know your body best. It is important to know the difference between soreness and injury. If your the least bit suspicious of injury, I would advise you to at least knock it off for a week or so. Better yet, see somebody.

What part of your back is sore? If you are doing it right, your upper back should be more sore then anything else.
