My first rep was always good, but then form broke down slightly from there, the result was a sore lower back, never extreme soreness or injury, just more than it needed to be. Well, Monday and reset well between each rep and it paid dividends, I felt great going into todays session.
The reset is why I am able to deadlift these days with so much frequency! I actually make myself regrip the bar after each rep, to ensure a proper reset and tight body position.
