So i'm deadlifting the other day and some guy comes up and offers his assistance... now.. i'm by no means a tiny guy and i think i move significant weight for my size, but here he comes and says basically i'm doing my deadlifts all wrong.
granted, my back is rolled but i'm pulling up about 350 at this point with a pretty common stance. he offers me an alternative stance that keeps my back straight, but i can't move anywhere CLOSE to the same weight and it gave me severe butt cramps.
i've been doing deadlifts only for a year (prior abdominal tear made it painful) so i agree my form probably sucks, but... am i setting myself up for a back injury later in the game, or... is a rolled back fine for deadlifts? i've heard both sides of the fence.
