I have been having this annoying sharp pain in my lower back every now and then. I went and got a x-ray done, it came out normal, doc gave me some painkillers didnt really tell what the pain was due to or anything. I tried deadlifting today w/o a belt after 3 weeks and boom not even half the weight i usually lift and i felt it again, and i had to stop. this is both frustrating and demotivating, cause i love deadlifts, i dont know what to do in this situation. I can not do deadlifts, but that wont solve it, cause the pain is there while squatting too and aslo while doign powercleans. I dont like using belts and if i use it, i usually do for my last set in deadlifts or squats. Should i jsut start using the belt from the first set itself for all 3 of these exercises ??
