The official unofficial FAQ of CAVEMANforum
Hey all,New to crossfit, about 6 weeks in. Did deadlifts on Sunday morning, and now it's Thursday and my back has been killing me since Monday. I am positive my deadlift form got more horrendous as I got tired, and I know this is why my lower back has been very painful. I saw a chiropractor on Tuesday, who attributed my pain to being a new weight lifter and said it should go away soon.I'm wondering how all you experienced cave people have handled a similar injury.Thanks!
Deadlifts are definitely one of those exercises that you should stop as soon as your form is dropping. The potential to destroy your back or knees is huge. The idea of doing it in a crossfit style workout is a little weird...

Olympic lifts consist of clean+jerk, and snatch. Although during training, and olympic style weight lifter will do dead-lifts, those exercises aren't classified as such. Also, I agree. Dead lifts should be done with control, and as soon as your form takes a dive...STOP! Same goes for Clean's, power cleans, snatches, and any and all forms of plyometrics.

Form is more important than reps.
