Where do you put deadlifts in your workout?
A) because I find they work the back much better than legs and
B) My spine wouldn't like doing squats/fs's and deads in the same workout
With back usually, but if I miss it that day, I'll do them with legs.
No DL's for me unfortunately due to lower back injury. That's probably why I always get the non-masculine side of the spoon position.
but that was when my workouts revolved around powerlifting...
how about both?
I usually do conventional deadlifts or rack pulls on back days, and sometimes like to incorporate stiff-legged deadlifts on leg days.
the thought of deadlifting and squatting in the same day is almost frightening to me... I don't think I could do it, at least not heavy
Same here.Originally Posted by thesinner
If theres enough fuel in the tank after squats or deads to do the other then I wasnt serious about lifting that day!:dl:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths . Proverbs 3:5-6

D/L on back day for me.
what about starting strength?
this program has squats every day(3 times a week) and deads with squats....
But this is a program for lifters with 0-24 months experience.
When i was on this program, my legs would die on the deads( I did squats first)...........
Now i separate the two.
My 2 cents.
Deads/Rack Pulls on Back Day.
RDL's/SLDL's on Leg day
I do stiff leg deadlifts on leg day and try to concentrate on just my hams. I just feel like I get a better leg workout overall w/ that exercise. But when I think about it, it does make more sense to do deadlifts on back day. It's just how I do though
SLDL on leg day. Rack pulls on back day. I just started doing rack pulls again the other day and I love them. Finish heavy with them. For those of you who do them, do you flex your back before you pull?
For me.. just before any lift... I thighten whatever it is I am utilizing.... If I flex just before.. it does wonders for keeping my formOriginally Posted by Mach .78

If you are saying deads are NOT good for back growth, IMO, you are sadly mistaken.
I absolutely love deads. Done right, they work it all. Calves, hams, back, biceps, ad nausem.
