Been doing ME and DE days on deadlift and in some cases I have been going 2 weeks between ME days depending on recovery. I have been doing conventional as well as rack pulls. The first foot for me pulling from the floor is very hard (6' 2"). When I pull from the rack I am pulling from mid shin with no problems and about 100lbs more.
If I am using the deadlift exercise as a back builder will I suffer or lose anything from going to strictly rack pulls? Is that extra foot of pull going to make that much difference in my back or is that where I will sacrifice the legs part of the exercise?
