I did CDLs for the first time in about 2 weeks yesterday and today I'm finding that I'm really sore around my upper back/shoulder area (more towards the middle of my upper back, in between the neck and shoulders)

I know CDLs work the posterior chain, but is it normal to feel it so high up or is a sign that my form is off? I've never had this happen after CDLs before. I was going to do upper body today but I think I'm too sore to do anything involving back or shoulders. [I also slept rather badly last night, so I guess that couldn be it, too.]

The traps and midback are used at the top of the DL. It's very normal.

That's where I get sore.

Whew! I'm just glad it isn't a form issue. Thank you :train:

Can you describe how to do the different types of deadlifts? I get confused and only end up doing one kind and would like to add some variety in.

(sorry for the highjack,)

When I get sore from CDLs, that&#39;s where it hits me.

Same goes for RDLs.

CDLs are from the floor on each rep. RDLs have a shorter ROM - IE you lower the bar to roughly your knees/shin and back. Keep a tight arch and stick your glutes out when lowering.

Thanks&#33; I, too, was having trouble seeing the subtle difference. Your description was most helpful&#33;
