Lower back felt funny after deadlifts today. Bodyweight deadlifts (70kg) – relearning deadlifts – first time in years.
In the lowering-portion of my deadlift – I seem to be initiating with my knees instead of shoving the hips back first…causing the bar to travel forward?
I’ve always found that if my lower back starts to hurt, it’s because I’m not engaging my core enough. Remember to suck your belly button towards your spine and to contract everything that isn’t your pecs.
Also, make sure that you’re engaging your lats. Imagine someone trying to tickle your armpits. Close that area off through the use of your lats.
i couldn’t see the knee drift forward in the video although i saw a wobble there.
Looks like your toes are coming up. Are you doing a straight leg deadlift? feet straight knees out apply to this lift as well.
Looks like you may be missing some end range hip flexion as well. In this video you are slightly flexed in the lumbar at the bottom. I deal with the same problem and it’s smart to start light to get the form back after years away–good luck.
