    Sorry for being lazy and not doing a thorough search.

    About 3-4 years ago I could run 10k 4-5 times a week no problem. I've basically cut cardio from my life, more so over the last 2 years. I've gone from 150-200 lbs in this entire time frame. Edit* 6'0 tall

    Also, I deadlift with poor form. I heard all the warnings about poor lower lumbar rounding and hitching and whatever, but I never felt pain in a way that I felt it was an issue, and I preferred to hit my 'big' PR's than to stick with lower weight. For the record I deadlift roughly 475 lbs.

    Recently I've been squatting and deadlifting twice a week each, and going for PR's at least once each.

    Anyway, rugby season just started up and while running, I have been having very bad lower back pain. I can lightly jog and sprint in bursts, but it's a consistent ache that plateaus after about 3 minutes of running and persists until I take a substantial break.

    My questions are what does this sound like, has anyone experienced this, and is this something that can go away quickly so long as I follow appropriate measures? Accordingly, what would those measures be?

    I am going to start light jogging and rowing regularly and light weight good mornings and deadlifts with proper form. I'm just stressed out because I have 2 rugby seasons approaching back to back and I need to be able to run at a much better pace for a much longer time than this pain allows.

    This is just me looking for a bit of feedback, thanks and sorry for the long winded post.

    Wherever I may roam
    Poor form + not staying in shape + getting older = back pain

    Seriously, lower your weight significantly until you can deadlift/squat properly.

    Do some back stretches every day...
