Using incorrect forms during deadlifts is a major cause of lower back pain. Improper techniques, such as rounding your back, can put excessive stress on the lumbar spine.
Lifting too much weight or increasing the weight too quickly can strain your lower back muscles and lead to pain or injury.
A weak core can make it difficult to stabilize your spine during deadlifts, leading to excessive stress on the lower back.
Failing to warm up properly before lifting can make your muscles and joints less prepared for the demands of deadlifting, increasing the risk of injury.
Muscle imbalances in the lower back or surrounding muscles can lead to uneven force distribution during the lift, increasing the risk of strain or injury.
Performing deadlifts when you're fatigued from previous workouts or lack of sleep can compromise your form and increase the likelihood of lower back pain.
Using improper footwear, a poorly fitted lifting belt, or a suboptimal barbell can negatively affect your form and contribute to lower back discomfort.
Poor flexibility in the hips, hamstrings, and lower back can limit your range of motion during deadlifts, making it more challenging to maintain proper form and increasing the risk of injury.
Limited mobility during deadlifts can heighten the difficulty of maintaining correct posture and elevate the likelihood of injury.
