    I have been doing deadlifs off blocks so I don't destroy the floor. I use smaller weights to make up the height difference. I pull from about mid shin height, is this low enough?

    Measure the bar when there are 45s on it and measure your current setup and ajust accordenly.

    If you put the weight on plates... and you stand on plates also... then there is no difference .

    Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

    Might be beneficial just to invest in a stiff rubber mat at the least. That way you can ditch the blocks altogether.
