So I really like power lifting, I've found it to be the best out of camp supplement to my BJJ, Judo, and MMA training, but I also continually get injured as my weights go up. I have some pretty severe lower back injuries, and deadlifting specifically always seems to lead to re-injury. I don't want to drop power lifting entirely and I'm well aware of the importance of training the posterior chain, so what I was thinking of was this: 2x per week kettlebell routine (swings, clean and presses, maybe snatches as well) 1x per week 5/3/1 squat and bench My heaviest kettlebell currently is 20 kg. I realize I won't build anywhere near the raw strength from doing kettlebell stuff as I would from deadlifting, but I also think I'm less likely to re-injure myself as the weight is so much lower (even with greater rep count). I just need to figure out a sustainable S&C routine that doesn't put me on the shelf for a fortnight every few months. Thoughts? I'm especially interested in anyone else with lower back problems who have found other workable deadlift alternatives.
