    Dead Lifting

    Alright people,

    I have incorporated dead lifting into my workouts for about a month, now. I usually start at about 285 for 4 or 5 reps, and step the weight down 10 lbs per set for 4 more sets.

    my question is.....are they worth it? Reovery periods on back day are at LEAST 48 hours, and dead lifting really kills my evergy for other back-day exercises. I am a big fan of compound movements for training strength (my primary goal), and my understanding is that dead lifts done properly are very good for strength gains.

    I just don't wanna be compromising other lifts and enduring all this discomfort if there is a better way. I have no back problems currently and I have access to 300lb olympic weights, a curl bar, and a quality incline/decline bench. As well as various dumbells.

    So....AkiraMusashi, TBM, PizD, SamauriSteve and company.....help me out, here!
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Of course they are worth it.
    Now instead of doing your type, try reversing it, working your way UP to the max weight, not down.

    DL's are the most testosterone producing lifts. They work all of your upper leg muscles(Quads and Hams) Your posterior, your lats, traps, obliques, abdominals to a lesser degree, your Spleius cervicis, forearms (If you're not using straps) and a little on your arms. They are one of the best lifts for power and muscle mass. The more you do them, the more your aponeurosis and lower lats will strengthen and protect your spine from injury. The important thing is to have good form. I do DL's every other week and I do 1-2 reps at a very high weight. (for me at least) Last week it was like 375x2, 380x1 390x1x1 and then 380x2. You don't really need to do more back work if you're doing DL's. It's a bit overkill if you're wanting to develop mass and strength. I do Low Rows to warm up and then go DL, I usually follow that up with some shrugs and I'm done. The DL's also take care of my legs for the week aswell, I just usually follow it up with some calf raises the next day and whatever I want to specialize on for the week. The big powerlifters I've talked to, have always told me you shouldn't do DL's more than once a week to start with and then every other week, when you start hitting the heavy weight for your capacity.

    Like AM said, try a little warm up before you do them, maybe a very light weight for a few reps just to get your body ready for what's next. Everything else AM covered very well :thumbsup: +rep for that.

    UGH... they're multiplying...

    In any event, yes. deadlifts are worth it. end of story. They work particularly well with rep schemes from prilepin's table.

    Bwahahaha, just because you become a CPT doesn't mean you'll know even HALF of what I know. You have a long way to go yet, apprentice.

    Deadlifts.
    Yes.

    (btw - proper form over weight lifted, if properly done the muscles worked include the middle back or rhomboids, upper back or trapezius, lower back or erector spinae, hamstrings, quadriceps, glutes, and forearms)
