    Lower back - muscular or spinal?

    As I try to learn and wrap my head around good form on the squat and RDL, I had a thought about the "pain" I have in my lower back area. It's not pain as such, not sharp or intrusive, or triggered at any particular point bending forward or backward. It feels more like a constant ache. When I go running this ache gets more intense. Could this be muscle related? Could it just be that I'm starting to use muscles properly now that the weight is going up?

    This is most likely not any sort of spinal injury based on the symptoms you're describing. However, I also do not think it is because you're "starting to use muscles properly now that the weight is going up". In fact, I'd say it's more likely the opposite. Think about when you started feeling that pain, and what you had done recently. If that coincides with your squat and DL routine, then you should take a hard look at your form. You my be cupping your lower back at the base of your squat, or you may be bending over too far at the waist and putting unnecessary pressure on your lower back. Also, keep in mind that the lower back is the slowest muscle in the body to recover, typically requiring 72 hrs vs 48.
