    What kind of knee issue are you dealing with?

    Feel your pain there I had to rehab a knee for 3-4 months recently. It's tough especially when you're like me with a 2 hour daily commute

    I have chronic knee pain so they will always be a problem

    But in particular, I hurt my knee on thanksgiving. I was barely able to walk the first couple days, but it is feeling much better.

    damn sorry to hear that

    I'm sure you've researched the hell out of it and have tried everything but for me foam rolling quads/it band/hammies 2-3x a day was the turning point.

    thoughts on doing deadlifts on a small box, to increase range of motion. where i would stand on box, but weights would continue to hit floor.

    i just mean, is the risk worth the benefit...

    by doing it like that, will that significantly increase strength, in terms of thickness and core, back, or do you think by adding that extra rom, that it will greatlly increase risk of causing injury....

    i think by doing it like that, it would make regular deadlifts seem ALOT easier.... but im concerned it could hurt my lower back to... just curious.

    Deficit deadlifts help with strength off the floor. It is basically the opposite of rack pulls that help your lockout.

    They are def a great exercise. Just make sure you are keeping your hips down and dont round that back too much
