I've recently started doing more deadlifts.
I keep a conscious check of my technique which I think is ok but since upping the weight on the barbell deadlift I've been getting pains in my lower back (left hand side) just above my butt.
I don't get this pain when doing dumbbell dealdifts but dont want to drop the barbell ones as I see both as beneficial.
Basically what I am asking is, is the pain good pain (i.e. muscles working) or bad pain (causing strain/injury)?
It ihas only arose since increasing weight, when I drop down in weight the pain isnt't there but obviously I'm now finding the lower weight too easy.
Should I keep at this weight or drop back to lower weight for a bit?

Deadlift- Back pain

Obviously noone can tell what it is on the net,since its YOUR body.bb.com, a place that turned Deadlift into a forearm isolation exercise
and a place where 99% of 21 year olds have bad back and knees.

I can almost bet that it has something to do with your set up."To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other."-- Carlos Castaneda
