Deadlifting

I get sore knees and lower back (form is flawless) from doing 10 reps or less of traditional deadlifting.
 
Is there any real mass building effect form doing deads around the 15 rep mark? I love this daddy of an exercise but really seem to struggle with the heavier bars, also do leg presses induce the same kind of testosterone effect as deads and squats? cause they sure as hell feel like a daddy exercise to me!

    Leg presses are good but not as good as squats or deads. Although it is important to use good form try and move naturally so your not rigid on the joints.

    I got some stick for advising someone not to stress form before but it is true that if you don't move naturally joints start hurting.

    So use good form and move naturally. Don't worry about perfect text book form if it takes strain away from muscles to joints more.

    Really I would try and look into or in some way address why you're getting this pain... after all if you starting going short sighted do don't stop looking at things further away, you sort the problem out.

    Is there a decent (I mean decent) trainer in the gym?

    Who says your form is flawless? get someone to look at it. Also a sore back may be caused by a poor core.

    id also not that if you are doing 10 reps in a row, this may not be the best for your body.

    Well I have been told a few times that my deadlifting form is excellent, by guys who've been training for donkeys years. Flat back, head up, bar close to shins and thighs, straight up and under full control and at the top of the movement just throw the shoulders back for a little squeeze.
     
    Everything's in line and controlled, I suppose I should just concentrate on the slightly lighter side of things deadlift wise for a few months.
    Your comment about the core is really good advice, perhaps a little pilates on the off days?

    Drewsky mate, decent trainer? The guy that runs the place keeps telling me to get on the roids! So I stick to asking a few of the other old heads for advise and wisdom.

    10 in a row, really? Do you mean you should take little breathers within the actual sets?

    That 10 in a row comment is entirely useless.

    Mate, regardless of who is at your gym who should address the pain.

    It might not entirely stem from deadlifting either, could be from squatting or being a desk jockey!

    Pilates, anything. Just throw in some planks, side planks, weighted crunches etc at the end of 1 or more workouts. Google has the best exercises.
