    Totally upto you. It can be anywhere from a few inches off the floor to near your lockout.

    I would put it just below the weakest part of your lift.

    pins are for safety anyway arent they?

    how high are you starting?

    I thought the objective of rack deads is to eliminate the bottom portion of a regular dead (the hardest part) allowing the user to handle more weight.

    Dude - keep them pins out! dont need that bar clanging all over the place anyway - if your gonna drop it it will just go to the floor, take the weight of the rack at the standing position.

    unless of course you're looking for the starting position for the pins/ in that high enough that you can take the bar standing - step back - then when standing again - rack it.

    You're recommending taking a loaded bar from the horizontal supports of a squat rack, stepping back from the rack with the bar in your hands, doing a set of deadlifts then walking back to the rack with the loaded bar?

    I have to admit, I have done this in the past when I had no power rack, but when you get up to heavy weights it's not really much of an option. Especially when squat rack supports are usually at an extremely disadvantageous height.
