Backbends and Deadlifts...

I just got back from William's yoga class... we did more backbends (it is the summer of backbends). I haven't been to Williams class for three weeks. I haven't done much for backbends since I started training deadlifts. Wow, my ROM for backbends has changed! Much smaller ROM, and boy, do my legs have to work that much harder to stabilize. The whole spine, not just lumbar, protested to this movement that used to be a staple. After the TSC I will have to bringing balance back to my back body. I wonder how regular backbends will influence my DL.

I imagine the effect would be less pronounced if you stick to sumos, but what do I know?
