Subbing Jefferson Deadlifts for Regular

Can’t find much via google on this question.

Lower back is pretty goofed and I seem to have trouble with regular deadlifts. Switched to sumo which has only helped minimally. I am doing lighter full cleans on one of my conditioning days.

Right now i am doing three days a week as

Day 1: squat 5/3/1, Bench 5/3/1, assistance work
Day 2: conditioning
Day 3: Lighter assistance work, light olympic work, conditioning
Day 4: conditioning
Day 5: Deadlift 5/3/1, OHP 5/3/1, assistance work
Day 6: rest
Day 7: Longer hikes with dog, skiing, biking, etc.

Only change would be changing the deadlifts to jefferson deadlifts, and lowering the % of max lifted to about 80% to compensate for double the volume since I will be hitting both sides.

I should add that I don’t have access to a trap bar

Low back flair up/give out when you bend over?

Find a way to get a trap bar… Jefferson deadlifts are idiotic if you ask me

At the risk of sounding like a dumbass, 1.what’s the point of Jefferson deadlifts? And 2. Why not focus on fixing your back problems It seems to me that Jefferson deadlifts would just be a band aid.

I can’t see how twisting your spine while lifting a heavy load is “easier on the low back” than a non-retarded deadlift.

trap-bar dude.

Last thing I’d do if my back was fucked would be to do this lift.
Save your $$$ and buy a trap bar.

But doing this lift is a horrible idea. I’d rather get dick AIDS
