Deadlift frequency

Started lifting about half a year ago, and I've begun to feel soreness in my lower back in the evenings after deadlifting. I'm doing PPL, training six days a week, so deadlifting twice per week. Should I cut down on the frequency? Ideally don't wanna be wheelchair bound.

      There's no use discussing this without you posting your form and the amount you're deadlifting. There's a 99% chance you're another beginner deadlifting with incorrect garbage form and that's going to affect you more than the frequency.

      But sure, at some point you'll only want to deadlift once a week.

      Because unlike you he's probably trying to escape dyel status.

          Like I said, dyel. It's fine to not care about strength, but that doesn't mean that everyone is okay with being a sissy like you.

              Focus on your new year's resolution, friend. You're not at a point yet where you should be inserting yourself into the conversation.

        OP here, I'm currently pushing 210 pounds on my working sets, I've filmed and compared with videos online and the form looks correct. The soreness only started in the last week or so.

          That's really not a weight that should wreck you like that even if you're doing it twice a week, but it's fine to only do it once a week at that point. It's rather low for 6 months of progress through. Nothing wrong with that, but it suggests other problems. I'd go down the food and recovery road and ask about that, but you're complainint about your lower back so I'm 99% sure it's form related so I'm not going to bother.
          >it looks fine
          The deadlift is a delicate movement. You can not learn to deadlift by copying others. A deadlift can look perfectly fine while also being incredibly incompetent on a technical level. If you do not have an experienced lifter overlooking your training, and if you haven't done proper research (and no, watching some Youtube step by step tutorial won't teach you the lift on a mechanical level), then you simply aren't at a point where you can judge your own form. If you didn't have problems with your back, then whatever, but believe me when I say that you need a form check from a third party. Just censor your face.

      Possibly the most functional excercise there is.

    If you're going to deadlift 2x/week, you need to rotate the type of deadlift and/or intensity.
    So, think like a powerlifter - one day low rep max effort deads, then 3-5 days later, low-intensity speed deads at 60% of your 1RM, RDLs, or another hinge movement, but doing standard deads heavy twice in one week is just dumb.

      Am I putting too much stress on my posterior chain with my current program? It's only this one movement that causes any discomfort. Thanks, I'll take your advice and see if it improves the situation.

      OP again, I do RDLs on leg day, focusing on hams. I'm already doing two different variations per week.
