Default How sore do deadlifts make your lower back?

Havent been desdlifting very long but lately my lower back has been feeling super stiff and sore constantly besides when lifting.This feels like the same normal DOM stiffness and soreness I get in other muscle groups so thats whst in im assuming and that it's just way more noticeable at all times and uncomfortable since your lower back is always active? 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

For me personally the first few months my lower back would be sore for 1-2 very rarely 3 days. Nowadays I barely get sore from them anymore. Been lifting for almost a year!

Could be a low-back weakness coming out or possibly your form. I'm a conventional puller, I tend to feel it more in my upper back. Though I do feel it in my low back sometimes..

Edit: Just noticed your vids Anyways, It looks like your lower back is starting to round a little bit on your second video (DDR) I think your hips are set a little too high before your pull. If you can drop your hips down a little lower and get more leg drive, it will be less taxing on your back.

On a side note, I'm not as experienced as the other men around here so hopefully they can shine a little more light on this issue...

Are you doing any direct low-back work for assistance exercises?

I had a spine surgery and don't feel deadlifts anywhere...

Check your entire set up. foot stance, grip width, starting position, etc.

There are different ways to approach it, so find the one that's best for you.

For now, I'd suggest you take a week off from DLs, do some core mobility work and then go again. If it's still not right, try sumos or pull from blocks, etc...

Actually, I'd say your back is over-arched, but I bet that won't be an issue as the weights get heavier.

Your back is sore because it's weak and you're doing something that it isn't used to/good at. We've all been there. Just get stronger and keep at it and you shouldn't have as much acute soreness anymore.

I can't see the Videos right now...

but with Squating 3 times a week and Deadlifting... A little break on your lower back might help.. If it's DOM's a little rest should clear things up... Once you get your lower back from being a weak link.. DOM's should be reduced tremendously.

Many times when a joint hurts the cause can be from the joints above or below the pain. So work on Upper Back, Shoulders and Hip mobility.

Try Foam Rolling and doing these laying back twist thingies before any squats or Deads... to warm up better.

Start with your Heels on the ground and arms out for stability. Rotate back and forth feeling the stretch. Do 10 then put you legs at a 90*, 10 more... Then lastly Legs straight for 10..

Besides foam roller, I also use 2 tennis balls in a sock to get the muscles along the spine.

I don't get a sore lower back from deadlifting. And it's only when I really push them that I get any "DOMS" from them at all. Dunno why, but that's how it's been for quite a while now.

I used to get really really stiff. Ultimately it was my buttwink fucking my lumbar up. Flexibility cured the excessive soreness for me.

Foam rolling and lacrosse ball rolling solved a lot of issues for me. I would recommend looking up any mobility videos.
