    Lower back sore after deadlifts?

    Is it normal for your lower back to be sore after lifting hard on deadlifts? I know deadlifts also work out your lower back, so is it normal if it is sore the next day?

    Yes very normal, I'm somtimes sore for 2 days after I do deadlifts. I often work every muscle group so they are sore the next day, that way you know you are definatly improving. Unless you are getting a non muscular sore, more like a twinge? That means you are doing it wrong.

    Very normal.

    To make sure your deadlifting correctly, check out some of Mark Rippetoe's videos:

    ----------------------------------------------------
    The idea is to straighten your back and lock it... bend down and take the weight only with a flat back... to do otherwise is to move the force of the lift-up the back and away from the hips where it should be kept as much as possible. If you can't take the weight decently, then it is simply too heavy to work with (assuming reps). If you want to hurt yourself just do otherwise. The head is always up, to encourage the flat back posture.

    If you graduate the weight increase properly from the beginning, a stiffness will be noticed but... a soreness?... a sore back?... I don't think so! I don't think anyone would want to be responsible for your ignoring the warning of a sore back (assuming heavy lifts). But then, that's just my opinion.

    my balls get sore after deadlifting.

    probably because of the massive test release.

    You sure it's not the lockout hump that some lifters (particularly the long-torsos + short arms) experience?

    New to the weightlifting scene and deadlifts have easily become my favorite workout. Always sore after doing them. Can't wait for my numbers to shoot up like some of the signatures I see in here.

    It's a core thing. Your hamstrings are pulling your hip down, while your upper back is stabilizing weight with help from the lower-back. Find the leverage that works for you best if you haven't already. The correct form should come natural once you stabilize everything right.

    could be muscular or bone pain, if it doesn't go away even after 3-4 days its definitely bone!! its better to stop lifting for a while at least the dead lifts and squats!!even the hyper-extensions, you can do leg-presses but in a safe form, not too deep that is!! meanwhile checkout a chiropractor or a osteo doc get some anti-inflammatory and pain meds, eat proper protein food and sleep for 7-8 hours a day, buy a lumbar support, and sleep on your back!! the doc will ask for a MRI scan, if that's messed up it could be a bigger problem!! best thing is to start with proper form and with less weight, then progress as you go along. why did i give so many suggestions?!! because the back is a sensitive area, if there's a disc tear or a bulge, it could lead to surgery!! that's why!

    Agreed, I see some cringe-worthy DL form from some of the good Ol' boys in the gym, and I can't help but wonder...

    "How is he NOT sore after doing that? .. "
