As a relatively tall guy, I sometimes have to worry about my back. I occasionally get back pain after an intense work out, particularly when doing lunges/squats. In general, I have heard that the best thing to do is to try to keep your back as straight as possible, but this doesn't always seem to work. I rarely do squats any more because it seems like no matter what it causes back pain later on. Lunges seem to work well for my legs/glutes, but every once in a while I get pain from this as well. Any advice on this? Does anyone else, particularly my fellow tall brothers, find this as an issue? Also, when I am on the bench lifting a barbell, my back tends to want to get that curve along the bottom; is this normal? I hate to try to go to a physical therapist to pay for this advice, but I am thinking that may be what I need to do. Thanks guys!
