    Thanks

    Not sure I understand. you mean pulling off a rack at just below lockout and lowering to the ground and lifting back up again? no it's a deadlift. Pick it up off the ground, set it back down, let go and stand up, repeat.

    A deadlift is off the floor. Do deadlifts off the floor. If you do them from lockout, you're done already.

    I just started going to Gold's (trust me it's the best thing I can get where I live) and the power racks have this gay thing that makes it impossible to start DLs from the floor. Have to start them from about three inches up instead. And no, there's no room in that crowded dump to take the bar outside the rack instead. Gay, I say.

    Stand on a 3" platform. You can pile a couple plates on eachother to make due if you like. I do that to make a box for box squats at my gym.

    How high should the Barbell be elevated from the floor ? Or it doesn't matter as long as your starting position is parallel or just above parallel (your quads/hamstrings)?

    ...Because I have 35 lbs. plates, I'll invest in an olympic bar with the big plates soon (45 lbs).

    Could you use 25 lb plates instead of 45's to get you lower to the ground?

    I look for an open space in my gym and that's where I deadlift since we have the same problem.
