    body weigh deadlifts?

    Have no gym access for a long time and have had success with bodyweight lifts but have no idea how to simulate a deadlift with no equipment. any ideas or should i stick to lunges and 1 leg swats?

    Get a kettlebell or make a sandbag.

    Coach Palfrey has a blog dedicated to sandbag fitness: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread53208.html

    I don't really know of a good substitute for a barbell deadlift. I've never used a sandbag, so I don't know how it compares. Glute/ham raises can hit your glutes and hamstrings (obviosuly) and also, isometrically, your back/core.

    Sandbag Fitness: Exercise Technique Series - The Sandbag Deadlift here is the technique.

    You can make a sandbag out of a sturdy dufflebag.

    Whether you use a sandbag or some other weight, you cannot replicate a deadlift without actually lifting something.

    There are some issues with the sandbag deadlift (namely that it works better with handles), but compared to not deadlifting at all - it's a good choice. It terms of making your own, the simplest option is to get an old duffel bag or holdall and add 1 or more bags of builders sand to it. These can be reduced in weight and taped if needs be.

    For deadlifts you won't need to worry so much about the integrity of the bag - just grip it and lift.

    One-legged Romanian deadlifts! Awesome. Do them standing on a pillow, or with dumbbells, or both, for added difficulty.

    What she said, plus add lunges, one legged squats etc. As coach said you will not get the same deadlift effect without weight but you should still be able to get a solid leg workout.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Similar EMG Activities of Lower Limbs be... [J Strength Cond Res. 2012] - PubMed - NCBI

    Study shows unstable surface does nothing for lower body work...
