Hi Andy,

Do you workout at home, or at a commercial gym?

I'm not sure that high rep deadlift would be the best solution. Sometimes the cumulative strain from high reps can be harder on my back, but this might not be the case for you.

One possible approach is to try to do a rep or two, rest for 15 seconds, do another rep or two, etc. Getting in a volume of reps in say 5 minutes isn't the worst approach in the world.

With that said, if you are after muscle building, it's certainly acceptable not to deadlift at all, and to use friendly lower back exercises such as one arm rows, seated cable rows and pull ups.
