Deadlift Problem @ Home

Hey.

I'm currently working out from home before hitting the gym in around a weeks time. I do not have a full home setup at this stage, just a selection of free weights.

The problem I am having is that I am finding it extremely difficult to perform a 'deadlift' due to the small size of the weights supplied with my dumbell. So when I go to pick up the dumbell, it is ver close to the floor, and I therefore have the incorrect form.

Maybe a silly question, but can I just say put two yellow pages under the weights to raise it from floor height?

    Suppose you could raise them a bit, but if you are starting at a gym in a weeks time, is it really worth worrying about doing them at all.

    Well, a week to two weeks time I will be going. I dont want to miss two weeks training, so I'll probably just raise them up off the floor :)

    If you're struggling that much with deadlift form you can try lifting them but my advice would be to stop deadlifting until you are in the gym.
    It's very easy to do yourself damage with a bad deadlift.

    yep raise them up abit with some books or wood.

    However you will soon run out of weight, you're grip will fail you before your back/legs do.

    Deadlifts are best done with a proper bar
