Anyone Effectively Replace Deadlifts In My 5x5?
I've been seeing a sports physio the last 2 weeks regarding an injury to my lattimus dorsi which is aggravated by Deadlifts and Squats.
Through many visits we were able to modify my squat and deadlift technique so that the muscle that was injured can not get hit by training again.
Having had great results, I can Squat effectively again with no pain I still cannot deadlift effectively though.
My physio has advised me to layoff the deadlifts for a while.
Seeing as they are one of my favourite exercises I am a bit annoyed but if I stop doing them now perhaps I can pick them up later on down the line.
Anyway my pull day looks like this:
Barbell Bentover rows 5x5
Barbell Curls 5x5.
Can anyone effectively replace the Deadlifts for me into my day 1 of 5x5?
I will also not be able to powerclean or snatch.
I know I am really hindering my results but I cannot deadlift in the short term.
Physio has cleared me to go back in the gym but I just can't deadlift for a while. I have to let this muscle heal it's no use working through this pain.
Any advice greatly appreciated...
