Sep 24, 2015 at 21:32 comment added claws I should have read this earlier. An year ago, I took deadlift to be any other exercise. Using the weight that would give me 5 reps in a set, I did 3 sets. I didn't feel anything then. The next day my back was so painful, I was unable to sit for 2min continously. Back pain was so severe, I visited doctor and took bed rest of 15 days while taking medicines. After couple of months of suffering without any improvement, I went to a weightlifting coach and he suggested a weightless exercise program for a month. The pain started decreasing gradually. Now my back is perfectly normal. Lesson learnt.
