    Are Deadlifts necessary?

    I want to build mass in my back. Are deadlifts necessary in a back routine?

    you'll probably find it difficult to find someone who doesn't do deadlifts. I stopped doing deadlifts for a long time and just started back doing stiff legged deadlifts.... its a good exercise.

    Is there a particular reason that you don't want to do them?

    Once you get used to them, deadlifts are amazing.

    They will help you pack on a lot of mass aswell, not just in your back alone.

    unless you have injuries that are preventing you from doing them, it should be the centerpiece of your back workout.

    If your goal is to build maximum mass and strength, I'd say yes, deadlifts are necessary.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    "The fitness and nutrition world is a breeding ground for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many of the things people worry about have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren't worth an ounce of concern."--Alan Aragon

    yeah i actually just started doing deadlifts with light weight. I hear proper form is key, or else you could be doing some serious damage to your back...or even a hernia.

    I just hear of alot of injuries with deadlifts, which is why I am a little hesistant

    Doing any exercise improperly is dangerous. You should use correct form in every exercise that you do.

    Deadlifts are a great exercise, but they are not necessary.

    dont know if it's just coincidence, but when i started squatting and DLing, all my lifts went up, and i started to pack on some serious poundage.

    PS, during june july n' august, i have to do all my core lifts on a smith machine, the gym i use for those months only has a smith machine, no bars. Only preloaded barbells.

    I disagree. Every person at my gym except 3(including me) has horrible form and they don't hurt themselves! They do, however, lift at least 100 lbs. more than I do. I don't care though, i'm not trying to build or break my spine, trying to build my back, legs, traps, and core.

    Trust me, learn how to do them properly. It is worth it, no matter how much you end up DL'ing. If it's heavy for you, you'll grow.

    personally i feel like deadlifts are the only thing that hits my upper back. chinups I always feel in my abs. I could row all day every day though and wouldn't feel a thing.

    Thank you!

    Too many threads from folks wanting to get out of DL's and Squats. Just either do them or don't, but don't come here asking folks to tell you it is okay to not do them. We aren't going to.

    He isn't asking if it's okay not to do deadlifts. He's asking if they are required for the growth of the back muscles. And they aren't.

    largest backs are possessed by the largest deadlifters.

    Deadlifts are not required but it definately is better to do them then not. But proper form is crucial when deadlifting, it is the most dangerous exercise that i might think of. Deadlift is my absolutely favorite exercise btw, I can't wait for my back day to do them.

    No, they are not necessary.

    The guy with the biggest back I've ever seen was against deadlifting. It shocked me at the time, but now I realize that there isnt really one move thats absolutely NECESSARY to do to build any body part. People get too caught up in being hardcore, and having to deadlift and having to squat, when the truth is neither of those are absolutely necessary to do.

    For example; Dorian Yates did not squat, and he still built some of the greatest legs ever.

    Just do what you like to do...

    When i first started deadlifting i learned proper form the hardway by really hurting my lower back, it hurt to walk for almost a month and i could not even walk around or keep a straight back. Even with that happening i still would never stop doing deadlifts, they are my favorite exercise and im up to 320x5x3 and i hurt myself in the 100's lol. Best advice to not hurt yourself like i did is to keep the bar close to your body and vision yourself pushing your feet through the floor, use them legs.
