Hey guys! hope ur all well!
Im just wondering if anyone else out there has the same or similar problem's that i have?
My erector spinae are decently developed but my left side larger than my right its visible from back and side view, and i think that its also a major cause to my lower back pains!

Im just going 2 write down all my stats so there is something to work with.
Im 6ft1 90kg(200lbs)22years old was told my one leg was a tiny bit longer than the other and was also told it wouldnt effect me in any way (when i was 17, pretty sure iv grown a bit need to check it again)

My deadlifting routine is
60kgx15x2 100x10 140x10 180x6 200x2
PR on deadlift is 220x1
My stance is feet just past shoulder width and my grip is under over Left over and right under.


any comments or help would be sweet Thanx guys!

Disclaimer: This is the theory of a 19-year old kid who has only studied medicine for six months, has never seen your back and is quite frankly just guessing.

I strongly suspect that this is caused by your longer leg. Theory (remember that): Having on leg that is longer is fine if you don't load it heavily, just like carrying a grocery bag in only one hand is fine, but a "side deadlift" is a little trickier. If, however, you start loading your legs, this otherwise small problem starts to grow. Your legs and your back has in at least one point in your life supported 310 kilograms. (Congrats, BTW) This is a whole other animal than walking around weighing 90 kilograms and I bet it is probably quite a bit more than your doctor(?) assumed your body would need to handle.

The difference in length might be a little bigger now. I suggest you go to a professional, mention limb length and your training and see if this is indeed the case. Maybe an extra sole in one shoe can fix it, I don't know.

Remember: I'm just a stupid kid, but IMHO, this theory kinda makes sense. You will probably get more responses in the injury forum as well. Good luck and hope you recover!

I'm with kakno honestly...but neither of us has credentials obviously. I say, fins yourself a good chiropractor, and see what he can tell you.

I'm wondering if there has been any specific athletic/sports related training in your past. My younger brother was a baseball pitcher for years, and his left lumbar region is very noticeably more muscular than his right (this was before he got into actual weight training, ie deads, on a regular basis).

Well be4 i started my weights training i played pretty much every sport i could, but in my last 3years of highschool i just played Rugby and a season of club rugby and weight training.

Weight training took a 2nd to rugby played flyhalf in highschool during one season i had a massive discomort in my hip think it was the left one ,which i had checked and then was told the kicking movement and the fact that my leg was shorter than the other, so it could be sport related but i havnt actually played any sport in 3-4 years, was also practicing jiu jitsu but since iv stopped and really focused on weights again my back tends 2 flare up a litle bit more.

Stu ill get u the nutritional values of pronutro when i can, i stockpiled it and threw away the boxes, when i buy again ill post em 4 you!

Really interesting to see if this is indeed resulting because of the differential in the legs....

(Thanks for the info though, love to hear your thoughts as well)
