    When I squat or deadlift, I always wear a pair of flat shoes. Mainly some cheap-ass low top Chuck Taylor canvas ones. Helps me a lot with my form. Give it a try. Im assuming you wear a belt also?

    Id say thats PROBABLY it. I was wondering if you do deads and squats on the same day too. If you do, I would seriously reconsider doing deads first thing on back day and then waiting at least 2 days to do legs(or vice/versa). Id try this
    Mon-chest
    Tuesday-back/shoulders
    Wed-rest
    Thurs-arms
    Friday-legs

    Be sure to get a good belt and use it for your deads and squats. When I warm up, I dont use a belt, I just use it on my working sets. Just my preference.

    What he says. I started doing deads on a platform. That lets me get the weights down lower. I usually start out with this on my back days (for me, Mon.). I do some serious 30-40 second holds on my back stretches and legs. Then I do a set of 12 deads with like 135 and then stretch again. I do two more warm up sets with a lil' more weight and less reps. Then I go uber heavy for 3-4 reps. Always use a belt on deads, always have. Always touch the toes after a set to avoid painful back pumps. Then I hit bent over rows on the platform. Then dumb bell rows. End with pull downs. Then I do bicep work. If you're tall like me, form is going to be really rough and very critical. Tall guys have to move the weight farther, so it's more stress full on the joints.
