    It's quite possible that adding deadlifts could actually benefit your lower back. Form is everything with this lift and I suggest your get proper instruction before attempting to add them to your routine.

    Yup to everything everyone else has said. Make sure to get the form down first. You accomplish this by just using something like 135 and doing them over, and over, and over, until the mechanics are drilled into your head and, most importantly, your body. Make sure to brace your abs and keep your chest up, and drive through your heels.

    And yes, if you are going to add deadlifts into your routine, make certain that you add ab/core exercises, if there not in there already, as well. Crunches, hanging leg lifts, etc. will add balance and make proper form easier to achieve.

    This ^^^^


    Like mentioned, start out slow, get your form down, then worry about weight. I would also suggest adding in WEIGHTED glute ham raises, this will aid in this process.
