I have a bulging disc injury and everytime I try to deadlift I seem to really irritate it. I’m almost sure it’s due to poor flexibility and poor form. I want to leave them out of my training unless I find someone in my area who is willing to teach me deads with good form. My back health is more important to me and I really don’t want to risk my ‘lifting career’ because I stubbornly kept on doing that exercise.
Now, since EVERYONE on this board is doing deadlifts (or at least, I get that impression;)) … Is it possible to achieve a massive back/fysique without them? What’s the best substitute for deadlifts?
I had issues when doing squats as well, but I really don’t want to leave those out to I replaced them with front squats. Feel a lot better on the back and I’m able to go deeper, too.
