    splitting the dead lift into 2

    I was curious about splitting up my dead lifts on back to good mornings and rack pulls. The reason being is that I want to take some stress off my left knee for a while as it is starting to act up again a little bit. Do you guys think good mornings combined with rack pulls can fill in as a substitute for dead lifts for a while?

    I personally find for lower back rack pulls are better than deads but i used to get quad pumps doing dead :/. I would only do one of the two and just alternate it workout to workout
