    Elevating the bar for deadlifts.....
    Would it be OK to raise the barbell up a little on some bricks or blocks of wood for deadlifts? The thing is, I do deadlifts outside with my old weights because I don't have space indoors and I only have 10kg plates which are small so the bar is pretty close to the ground. When I do deadlifts I can't bend down far enough to grab the bar without bending my lower back which is incorrect form and dangerous. Even when I bend my legs as far as possible I still can't maintain a straight back. And another problem is I want to do deadlifts on back day but because I have to bend my legs so far, the exercise really hits my legs hard like squats which means I'd be hitting legs twice a week because I do legs on a separate day; I think training legs twice a week hard is too much. So I was wondering if I could elevate the bar so I don't have squat down so far and can still keep my back straight? The exercise would still be effective for the lower back, right?

    find something to put under the plates but make sure its strong enough and stable .
    ps dont raise it too high .
    NOT ONLY IS STUPIDITY INCURABLE BUT ITS ALSO CONTAGIOUS OVER THE INTERNET.

    VAR ONLY CYCLES ARE ONLY FOR PEOPLE WITH A VAGINA.

    Pull sumo instead if your low back bothers you on deads and do assitance work for the low back.

    good idea as well but i bet those short 10kg plates put the bar way low when the weights are on the floor .

    i like doing rack deads (bar just below the knees) specifically for back thickness anyway.

    I do these as an assistance excersize on squat/leg day.

    I pull convo for rack pulls though.
