Daily Simple Questions Thread - August 04, 2021

On the first day I was a little on the fence about it, I was trying to figure out if it was just really sore, or something more, it was hard to categorize for certain. It felt a bit sharp, but not in a lancing/shooting way and after about 20-30 minutes the pain had almost entirely gone away. After that it’s just been soreness.

Given the immediate onset and subsiding nature, I’m wondering if it’s possible that I just did much more of the lifting with my lower back as opposed to my glutes. I tried to do some research last night and read that Romanian deadlifts can help fix this and active more of your glutes while removing your lower back from the lift, but very annoyingly I’ve also read that it should be avoided for this purpose.

I feel like I’ve got information overload, there’s so many different “experts” on Youtube and other websites, and it’s hard to know who to listen to and trust.
