Lots of rows & lat work,get the upper back stronger so it carries more brunt of the force from heavy weight, while hitting the hamstrings hard. If you can't train the deadlift train the main muscles that make it work.
Thank You

I have never tried any stiff legged deadlifts. I will try them out along with the Glute Ham Raisies and Hyper Extensions. I do heavy lat work with rows (either EZ Bar Bent Over Rows, or DB Rows) once a week. Never have put enough emphasis on my hams though.

just trying to let you know that you are not alone and you might be able to deadlift if you start out slow and light...

my PT actually told me not to stop lifting, so long as i use good form

Thats why I like the db variation of stiff legged deadlifts they are way safer to do, easier on your lower back & easily combined with a Romanian deadlift, also performed with a hang, which allows an descending phase with in the movement for power building. Lat work sounds like its in good order.

Any advice on picking out a belt? I am completely ignorant. 4", 6", Training, Competition.

Is is just a matter of feel or is there a significant difference?

Um, I'm a new guy around here, so feel free to discount anything I say, but I think there's no reason to ever use a belt or straps, etc, unless you are grabbing huge weights.

As long as you are working wisely from your own natural abilities and building from that, I can't imagine any weight or lift you would need straps. As a relatively new lifter, if you need straps or a belt, the weight is too much.

Just my .02
