  • Deadlift - keep bar in contact with shins/legs

    I started conventional deadlifting again. Via consciously keeping the bar in contact with my legs during the ascent and descent, I hardly feel stress upon my lower back.

    Is this a reason I had lower back pain everytime I deadlifted in the past; lifting the bar a bit too far from shins/legs, thus not over the middle foot.

    I am aware about desensitizing myself from fear of injury.

    I don't think I'd identify one form change as the reason for the presence or absence of pain, but I am happy to hear you're back lifting once again!
