Yet another 5x5 routine question


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Yet another 5x5 routine question within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I know substituting exercises, etc is not good in the program. However i have an injury that was caused and is aggravated whenever i perform deadlift. My chiro called it a cervico thoracic sprain, basically my rib joint in my back pops out when i do deads no matter the weight. Is there anything i can use in place of a deadlift for this style of training?

    GM's are fine if you can't deadlift.

    I would go for a second opinion with another chiropractor... can you do bent-over rows?

    Yes i can do bent over rows no problem. and shrugs too. It just seems the angle of my arms when doing deads with any sort of working weight pulls at my back just right.

    havent tried those...


    But i tried doing deads with just the BB and a mixed grip, underhand on the injured side. Real slow, paying a lot of attention to form. no problem. added 5,10, and finally 15lbs to each side and haven't had any issues yet.

    So hopefully this sticks and i can be patient and keep strict form and not add weight too fast.
