I am just wondering what some experienced lifters would recommend for how to incorporate the deadlift into my back day. I am probably going to do it at the beginning so I can get the most out of it. I am wondering how many sets/reps to do for max strength gains on the deadlift, my squat and deadlift numbers are shotty compared with my bench because I have neglected my lower body like an idiot until the lost month and a half or so. Please don't reply unless you have at least 6 months of serious lifting experienced and know what you are talking about. Thanks guys.

1 set of 5 works well. I would avoid too much volume and keep the weight heavy. Use squats more liberally since they can be recovered from more easily.
The above poster has a good idea. I would probably be toast after a few weeks doing 5 heavy sets of DL's. It's the most stressful lift, save your recovery resources for other (more productive) work.
