I was contemplating whether to do some hamstrings and leg press..but I wasn't feeling well. Ended up finishing the day with a couple sets of curls and left....that's NEVER happening again.

easier to execute at least, i can never tell if im doing GHR correctly, its easy to use too much hips/back/abs etc, where was SDL i can always feel it in the hams lol

that being said posterior chain exercises are easily the worst part of working out, murder my hamstrings everytime

SLDL's can be done by most people as long as they some hamstring flexibility and able to maintain an arch in their back. Glute Ham Raises is a really hard exercise.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Is it normal for your lower back to be sore during squats and deadlifts after training for a long time? Even on warmup sets, my lower back would start feeling sore during squats. I'm talking 135lb, whereas I use 295lb for typical working sets. Or is my back fucked up?

Could be your back is messed. Or it could be inactive glutes making your back do more work than it should. Try activating your glutes with some glute bridges before you squat/pull. Also, on your warm up squat/deadlift sets really focus and get that mind muscle connection of using your glutes to do the work. And don't forget to really open up those knees when squatting, let's you keep a more vertical back angle.

Your lower back maybe over worked. The lower back is being used a lot in lifting and daily movements so it takes a while to recover. My back gets sore when doing squats for high repetitions. The guy mentioning glute activation made a good point as the glutes are often under active. How often do you dead lift?

sir is right, a lot of people having trouble activating their glutes. Like he said try doing bridges and the key thing to look for is where you feel it. if its the lower back then your problem is the inability to active your glutes.

I was also told to flex your glutes hard and stumble side to side before a deadlift set. Apparently that helps glute activation and in finding your power position (feet-wise)...
