    Welcome, Benjamin.

    Keep posting, keep at it, and ask questions when you have them. We've all been where you are, sometimes more than once, and want to see you succeed.

    Do you have a gym near you that allows a person to Deadlift?

    What's your age, weight, and height?

    I could, but time constrictions make doing it at home more feasible. After the new year I'll be able to get another set of 45's.

    Until you get more weights, you could try snatch grip deadlifts or deficit deadlifts. both of these increase the ROM, thus requiring less weight.

    Thank you for the input. I got scolded a bit in another thread, so I'll just stick with the regular DL and weight for now and increase the weight when I am able to

    Benjamin - don't sweat the "scolding". Rip was just making sure that you understood what strength actually is, and it's measured objectively by heavier weights. You can't do that limited as you are.

    So, as TartanEagle mentioned, you'll have to do what so many of us were doing while building our home gyms during the 2020 lockdowns—improvise. Figure out ways to add more weight to the bar like strap kettlebells or hand-weights that you may already have around the house to the bar; use buckets of sand (of course, you'll have to adjust your pulling height to accommodate, or treat them similar to rack pulls), etc. If you can't do that, then go with TartanEagle's suggestions. Will you get stronger, by the strict definition that Rip is adhering to? Nope. But you will adapt with those movements and be better prepared for when those new plates arrive, much better than just doing multiple sets of the same weight with a standard DL.
