    I have started doing rack pulls and have noticed my lower back is always very stiff straight afterwards (regardless of how I load the hamstrings). I have tried to concentrate on my form (which is getting better) but I wondered if there is anyway to decompress the lumbar region to help recovery?

    It may not completely be your spine that is being “compressed.” There’s a good chance the stiffness you are feeling are your erectors from their heavy involvement in deadlifts.

    I personally like core work as a general theme for lumbar awareness and health. Things like TVA crunches, dead bugs, diaphragmatic breathing, even stir the pot all are great tools

    Sadly don’t have a yoga ball, but will give the dead bugs a go. Thanks.

    You won’t need a yoga ball for most.
