I was wondering if anyone can give me some answers on low back pain after deadlifting?
My form is good and Iíve done tonnes or research on how to do them properly and such, and I feel fine while doing them but the day after my lower back hurts when Iíll bend down to pick something up. Doesnít feel like muscle soreness. Iíd like to know if Iím just worrying too much and should just push through it or if Iím destroying my back. Any replies appreciated.

Don't push through bad pain. Skip the deads at worst case. Show a vid of form. Check with a doc maybe and you can always do other great excercizes for lower back

Maybe toss up a video if you have one.
Obviously something is off if you are ending up in pain but it could be a ton of different things.

Check and see if you are flat footed. I am serious. Once I got custom insoles and started deadlifting in them and not barefoot, it made a WORLD of difference. I don't even feel pressure in my lower back anymore.

After getting most of my injuries from deadlifts, I decided to set some limits for myself, especially until I heal up completely. When I deadlift from the floor I go double overhand and only use a weight I can pull for reps without straps. I average a 600lb deadlift with straps, so without I usually can bang out with 315 for reps and 365 if reps are less than 5. I find this really develops my forearms and grip as well, so I like it and I donít have the back pain. Most of my deadís now are rack pull though. I am able to load a lot of weight and not get the pain in my lower back. If you are lifting for hypertrophy then this is more optimal imo, but if your a power lifter, my suggestions probably wonít make sense. Just my 2cents!

As some have said above:
2: Pull with double overhand grip and DO NOT use straps. I don’t care how much you can pull with straps. If you can’t hold on to the bar by yourself, you lifting too heavy.
3: Reset every rep
4: Really pull the slack out of the bar/get supertight in the start.
5: Do not do high rep
6: Deload, decrease intensity and volume and SLOWLY ramp up again with perfect technique.
Just a few fingers when I don’t how a clue about how you actually lifting. Probably forget some pointers... .

Ass down, head up, look at the ceiling, back straight, hands even, lats flared, lift from the legs.
Do as I say, not as I do.
