    Awesome!

     

    To be honest, I don't see anything majorly wrong with your form. Your spine is neutral and you don't seem to be lifting too much with your back, plus you have the belt on for extra support.

     

    If you're lifting like this regularly, but ALWAYS get pain.. there might be something wrong there already which needs working through. What sort of lower back mobility do you do at the moment?

    Thanks @scott for the comment! I got a back injury when I'm beginning at the gym and doing sitting latteral raise, did some X-Ray and take rest after that and nothing wrong with my spine due to doctor, but I think there's some problem with my ligament (maybe I'm not sure)!

     

    My job require to seat most of the day and it makes my back hurt, too! I usually feel pain after getting up in the morning and seating too long in the office! Doing gym made me feel better, I think some back muscle getting stronger so I feel less pain than before, but when lifting heavy, it's sore again, especially when I spin my hip or bent over!

     

    Should I reduce the weight and increase the reps for the rack pull exercise?

    If you are getting pain when going heavy, it's probably not a bad idea to lower the weight for a little bit.

     

    Actually going back and looking at your videos, it looks like you might be hyper-extending a bit at the top of the movement (arching your back too much rather than pushing through with your glutes).

     

    Along with the pain you say you get from sitting, maybe you have a little bit of APT that needs addressing?

    Thanks so much, @scott,

     

    I did the exercises twice a day plus 1 yoga session and immediately see improvement on my back pain! I did really have APT problem when I view myself in the mirror!

     

    I'm trying to fix my posture when sitting and doing daily activities. Do you know any resource or video talking about fixing APT in daily activities, I really appreciate your help, Scott :) You saved me, I have got the pain for a really long time, and suffering with it!

    That's great to hear @hoangtu210!

     

    Having chairs without back support can be good actually, because it forces you to sit upright and keep your core tight, rather than slouching or even having those seats with a natural curve in the lower back area.

     

    Aside from that, thinking about keeping your body as straight as possible while standing by, again, not slouching or letting your hips tilt forward too much will help too. Just little things where you take notice of your everyday posture, and using those exercises, should help you see a really good improvement in your ATP in no time!
