    Best substitute for deadlift - back exercise?

    I've removed deadlifts from my programming, what would be the best substitute, aside from pull-ups? DB or BB rows?

    Deadlifts are a lower back/body exercise, rows and pull ups are not. I had to stop deadlifting a while back and there is really no singular substitute for one of the kings of the big lifts. Good mornings and heavy RDLs have become a staple, as well as other various lower back and chain movements (sumo SLDLs, Glute-ham raises, weighted back hypers, glute bridges, and the like).

    Rack pulls are great but create very similar challenges on the body, so if you can't deadlift, most likely rack pulls are out too.

    I miss deadlifting tho

    I eat for living, not just lifting.

    Thanks girls! I am pregnant (again lol) and I've heard conflicting things on deadlifts so I am looking for alternatives that can be done with lighter weights/higher reps. Thank you for the suggestions. A little disappointed that I won't be using our brand new GHD for a while but I suppose that will come in time...

    Deadlift.




    srs though, why not do light deadlifts or speed deadlifts?

    The reason I say this is because, for me, if I take a break from deadlifts my form goes to complete sh!t and it's not tip-top to start with...

    Woah congrats!!! Was just skimming through and did a triple take when I read that you are pregnant - hope you are feeling great and rested.

    When I was pregnant this last time, I fell in love with GHR's (with a stability ball in front just to barely touch and roll out on - being super-cautious not to land on the belly)

    Hey Sonti, I wanted to say congrats on the upcoming new wee one!

    I also got confused by the D in the GHD. I love GHR's. GMs and RDLs are good, too. But some light sumo DLs might be a good option for a bit of a belly. Of course all depending on what your doc says is okay and all.
    Gym PRs:
    SQ: 360 x 1, BP: 165 x 1, DL: 330 x 2, OHP: 110 x 2

    Best meet lifts (raw w/wraps):
    SQ: 365, BP: 155, DL: 350, Elite total of 870 @165

    Closest thing to a log, but better cause it's vids! = www.youtube.com/user/birdiefu
