So I started lifting 3 months ago and yesterday decided to add in some deadlifts to my back workout. Beforehand I watched some proper form vids and tried to keep my back straight and chest up as I performed the lift. I used two 25 plates (95lbs) with a plate under the bar to hold it up to the proper height. I did 4x10 and then 2x6 a little while after. After the deadlifts I have been having a slight lower back pain when ever i bend over to grab something or arch my back. The slight pain has continued the day after too.
Again I tried to keep proper form throughout although being my first time I am not sure if it was 100% correct.
Is it normal to feel lower back pain after dls? (note: it is not sore like after a bicep or chest workout, more of a subtle lower back pain)
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Trust me, you'll know if you messed up your back on a lift...you'll be almost unable to walk, and want to sit down due to the pain.http://www.history.com/images/media/slideshow/abraham-lincoln/abraham-lincoln-antietam.jpg

I think it could be soreness...
If it's a sharp lower back pain something might be wrong.
Once when i was new to DLs I did it wrong and had a sharp back pain for like 2-3 weeks. Now it doesn't happen any more. I got my form under control after I watched this video:
If you think something is actually wrong then correct your form bro.

Most likely you strained your erector lumbar muscle, look it up and see if the symptoms match. Its not permanent damage however takes a long time before you stop feeling that annoying pressure/mild pain... lots of stretching both back and forth.Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery but today is a Gift. That is why we call it Present.
