Default Another deadlift question

As many of you know, i suffered a back injury last year. I am trying to get back in the gym and I have started to deadlift again. I have been in a squat rack with the safety bar slightly below my knees. I know I'm getting some benefit from this. My question is. Should I be trying to go all the way down to the floor with my lifts or will the 3/4 lift help me enough to build my lower back muscles?

Is there a significant increase in pain when you go down all the way?

I don't see any reason why you can't stay at this height with the deadlift. 3/4th the way down is low enough where it will work the back, I would hang there, see how it feels for a while, and try to get stronger.

beam,
I would think that this would do you a great deal of good, as rack deads are one of my favorite assistance exercises. Just take things easy for now. Maybe gradually lower the pins, and if you feel up to it start pulling off the floor later on. Hang in there.

My 2 cents and it's worked for me. Go all the way down with super light weight for therapy. Each week ease into a little more weight. I screwed my back up pretty good. In daily life it still bothers me at times along with sciatic problems ever since. But Deadlifting since I slowly built back up has not bothered me. I'm not 35 lbs away from the heaviest reps I used to do. I'm going to come back stronger.....dammit

But that said, keep the rack deads in there to keep the back alive...if that makes sense

I guess the pull from the floor scares me.

In your case, it would be best to stick with a comfortable weight on the rackpulls, maybe 70% of your max and pick a couple assistane exercises such as good morning and reverse hypers for instance.
