Alternate for Deadlift

Could anyone recommend a comparable lift to replace deads? I am trying to recover from a lower back injury and everytime I try deads I re-tweak it. I am able to do squats but just not deads. Here is my schedule (as suggested in a previous post).

– Squat, Dip, Chin

– Incl. bench, Bent row

– Deads, Mil press

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

You can try Deadlifts with a lower weight and concentrate more on form, or negative reps, or TUT.

You can also try Straight-leg Deadlifts(SLDL), again with the same suggestions. If you′re recovering from a lower back injury and took some time off, I wouldn′t try lifting heavy right off the bat.

I kept on tweaking my back doing regular deadlifts too. I have switched to straightleg deadlifts in a smithmachine. I am upto 90kg for 16 reps and not even a twinge(over my bent leg PB). Also, get a belt to keep your form straight. And start light!!!

Yes, take care of it. Better to replace than really injure your back.

Squats + Shrugs is about the most comparable replacement.

SLDL like everyone mentioned can be good but KEEP GOOD FORM.

Trap bar deads (TBDL) some find they can do no problem also.
