Deadlift bar height from floor

Recommended Posts

How high off the ground should the bar be for deadlifts?

 

I'm currently using 25lb plates as the biggest plate and am unsure how much higher I should try to get the bar from the floor. I could use plates for extra height, or the gym has some wood blocks as well. 

 

Thanks for the help!

I forgot to say thank you! If this sore throat doesn't turn serious, ill be checking my height out tomorrow. Deadlifts are quickly becoming my favorite.

Also, don't forget that the bar height is incidental, based on the standard casting of plates whenever ago. It isn't the 'perfect' height for engaging your back, posterior chain, etc. rather the other way around, so if for physiological reasons you can't pull with good form from the standard height, pull from a rack or from blocks
