I have watched a lot of videos and read up about the stiff legged deadlift.
I feel like when I do it my form is very good, and a few randoms in the gym told me my form was also very good.
The problem happens after my last rep and I put the bar down on the floor, I have somewhat of a pain on my lower back, it feels very stiff.
I feel the exercise the most in my hamstrings for sure, specially the next day, but the lower back pain is usually sore right after the last rep and very uncomfortable.
I assumed it was normal and it was just working my back aswell (and maybe the fact my posture isn't great and it's strengthening/straightening it out - that's just what I told myself though).
A friend of mine was getting a personal training lesson and his PT told me I shouldn't be feeling any lower back pain at all when doing this, so now I am wondering what I am doing wrong.
He told me to stick my chest out more and keep my back at a higher angle off the ground (I had it almost exactly parallel and straight).
I am doing it almost exactly like this video: youtube.com/watch?v=2ERNbAxtmPQ&feature=player_embedded (Won't let me post links)
Except that my knees dont bend as much as I lower the bar (I am pretty flexible and can get a full stretch pretty easily until my grip fails)
