Terrible back pain during Deadlifts from blocks below knees
« on: March 21, 2018, 06:39:46 PM »
Hi guys,

I've started doing raised deadlifts now that I'm following Sheiko but I'm experiencing a sharp, worrisome pain across my whole back after each rep. I am using the power rack to adjust the height just below my knees and I'm bracing and checking my form on a lateral mirror but as soon as I do a single rep I feel a paralyzing pain all over my back (feels more nervous than muscular/skeletal) even though I'm using weights significantly lighter than those I use for full deadlifts (raised deadlifts are supposed to be easier, no?). I experience no discomfort whatsoever doing conventional deadlifts (or paused, or deficit), but rack pulls are making me nervous, could it be that I'm doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance!

Do an X-ray to make sure there isnt a bulge of lingering herniated disc waiting tot pop out in the L5-L4.


When i recovered from a severe S1-L5 hernia following an accident, for quite a while i couldnt pull from 1 block cause it was right on that disc. Now i'm a tall guy, so i recon you could have an issue with the disc 1 vertebra higher.


Really. Do the X-ray and dont say you lift cause otherwise they wont bother and be like "oh rest like 5 years".

Thanks a lot! I'll get to it right away as the last thing I want is a serious injury derailing me from my training!

getting it checked out asap by a doctor should be your main priority. hoping it's something minor for you!
