Alternatives to deadlift

For whatever reason deadlift is not the best option for me at my gym so I was wondering are there any exercises that are similar. I am trying to focus on compound movements and I understand the value of deadlift, any alternatives ??

    If you're looking for alternative back-exercises, try Bent over barbell rows or wide grip pull ups to target the upper back, or hyperextensions for the lower back.

    yes make sure that u are doing an exercise for the lower back... a lot of people that don't do DL's end up not working their lower back enough, leading to injury (this happened to me). Hyperextensions are great for lower back...

    Rack pulls from just below the knee?

    You wont get as good of a range of movement but it will still hit your lower back and keep a strong core.

    Tricep kickbacks are a good alternative.
