    do fewer reps or less weight if you can’t walk the next day you moron
    going to maximums every session is DEYL behaviour

      A little late for that. I never do 1RM anyway, it was 3 reps

        Even if you actually pulled your hamstring, not doing lower body for weeks is a retarded approach to rehabbing it. "Motion is lotion" you should have been trying to find exercises and ranges of motion that didnt hurt the only hurt a little bit. Avoiding all lower body exercise is likely to cause another flare up since it's not used to being loaded

          Well, I continued squatting through the pain and fucked myself even more. I tried doing super light RDLs today after 2~3 week of no lower body and I could feel it making my hamstring worse again

            You can reduce ROM on exercises or do stuff like leg extensions with a hold where the hamstring is the antagonist. If you actually strained it, it might take a few weeks to recover but it's likely to recover faster with lower body exercise and less likely to flare up again if you start loading it after it feels better. How did you hurt yourself deadlifting? What was your warmup? What RPE are you typically working at? It was probably a result of poor load management, doing one rep maxes or 5rm is irrelevant if you're loading more than you can handle over a period of time

              I am probably going to start again with super light squats and RDLs and see how it goes, but today I could definitely feel it being exacerbated

              I usually stay at a rep range of around 5 for deadlifts. Only 1 set. I don't do a lot of warming up, only 1 pl8 or some days i do bent over rows beforehand

                It sounds like you hurt yourself because you have really bad programming. Rep ranges aren't more or less likely to injure you, injuries are usually a result of poor load management over time or over use. You can do both those things at any rep range, the most important thing is managing accumulated fatigue. Also you should he warming up and jumping up to your target weight at most with a 30lb increment. You should do an actual program that has stuff like this built into it, not just wing it

                I was doing Greyskull, if it says anything about warm-ups then I don't remember it. Haven't had any problems not doing warm-ups with any other exercises yet though.

                It could've been accumulated fatigue honestly. My recovery time sucks

            Fucking retard. I went for a PR 1RM the other day and failed, and my ass and hammies felt like I'd ripped them in half. Lowered the weight and did 3x3 at a regular weight and they went back to normal immediately.
            Bitch.

        1 rep, 2rep 3rep 10rep maximum. It’s still a maximum. Don’t do it unless you’re prepared

            Honestly it's not hurting, it just feels like my back is pumped right now.
            Could I be safe?

            Yes, it's very likely you just have a back pump. Do some thoracic extensions if you're worried about it.

              You might be fine then. I would stretch it gently and see how it goes. When my shit went south my low back was sore for a week or two and I felt a pain go through while dl'ing.
              Then the next day it was painfull to get out of bed, walk, etc. Sitting certain ways were painfull.
              Think it took 1-2 months to heal and now I get tingles down my legs.

              I viewed it as a learning experience. Hope you take this as one too.

              What scary me was that I felt the crack right in my spine. But I just stopped and reracked the weights just fine.
              I will see if my back hurts tomorrow, hooe it doesn't.
              I'll be away from deadlifts for two weeks also.

                This, injury from deadlifts (and most heavy lifting) is usually acute.

      It's embarrassing how long it took me to learn this. Literally over a year before I stopped going so hard that I couldn't move the next day, but I was also a NEET at the time so I didn't have anything to do the next day anyway.

    I never see anyone doing dead lifts at the gym I work at. I see everything else besides deads.

    Use other exercises to condition your legs first. Use the leg extension machines and leg press.

        Some leg extensions/hamstring curl machines actually feel good. Some of them are really uncomfy.

        Most legpresses are good. The one at my current gym, the foot plate tilts at full extension for some reason and I almost blew out my hip the only time I used it.

    If you pull a hamstring doing DLs, you're trying to lift too heavy.

    I posted on here a few days ago asking how to reduce leg pain after DL on leg day... I have lifted and done heavy DL for over a decade and without fail it puts me out of commission for the rest of the week, making it impossible to walk or run normally, only to fully recover by the next leg day

    I just poped my lower back while doing deadlifts.

      It's going to hurt more tomorrow. I used to do the old man walk(lean forward at the hips slightly).

        Yes, I ask again, how did you hurt your hammies on a DL? My form is good and I've never once pulled a hammie doing it.

    Felt like shit but I'm not risking my hammie. Deadlifts can wait until tomorrow.
