    Mostly lats, lower back, abs, glutes, hamstrings, and calves, ie the entire posterior chain.

    It's a true whole body movement. Back and Legs are primary muscle groups worked.
    If there's any one skill that I've seen in champions- people who have really achieved their highest desires- it's an unbelievable level of persistence. They'll change their approach as necessary, but they won't abandon their ultimate vision.

    It depends on which muscle groups you focus on while performing the lift. If you use your arms as merely hooks and focus on pushing your hips forward, like I do, then you'll mostly be using your lower back. If you focus on driving your feet into the ground, then you'll be hitting your legs harder. Others squeeze their lats, abs, and traps. It's such a compound movement that you could go many different routes with it.

    This is a good way to put it. Overall, your lower back, glutes, and hams will get a lot of work from deadlifts, but you can emphasize different things by making SLIGHT alterations in your form.

    ^ Those. I use a high hip position, which emphasizes back over legs. I do my deads on back day.

    You'll find people who do it on leg day, and some on back day. It is up to you, your personal goals, and your style of deadlift.

    It's probably easier to list wat DL's DON"T hit.

    I had to lay off them for a year and when I got back into them everything except my pecs were trashed the next day.
    Yes I'm 62 and natural

    I loled @ the ops sig containing two deadlift quotes and him not knowing much about them.









    Bottom line (as mentioned already) is it depends on how you do them. I guess it depends on personal preferance/goals.


    I prefer shins about 2" from bar when I'm standing straight up so when I bend over to grab the bar my shins only move about 2". Also I pull with high hips. Doing it this way really puts the focus on my back.

    Here's a (probably incomplete) list off the top of my head.

    Hamstrings
    Glutes
    Quads
    Lower Back
    Upper Back (All of it)
    Lats (if bar kept close to body ie proper form)
    Posterior Delt
    Abs
    Obliques
    Forearms

    Basically, you use this exercise and you get more muscular all over.
    GOMAD!

    there is no curl motion with any style of deadlift, so its probably just the fact that your arms are stabilizing the heavy friggen barbell. Deadlifts have changed my life lol

    What are "ur biceps"?

    --The proper plural form of the Latin adjective biceps is bicipites, a form not in general English use. Instead, biceps is used in both singular and plural (i.e., when referring to both arms). The form bicep [sic], although common even in professional contexts, is considered incorrect. (from Wikipedia)

    Deadlifts incorporate about 80% of your body's total musculature.

    Hamstrings are secondary muscle? They are the prime movers in the movement.

    I always did them on back day, for two reasons. One, my hip stance put most of the effort on my back. More importantly, though, was the fact that I did squats on leg day. If you've got squats in your routine, I like to separate the other muscle builder for a day when I can put 100% into it. Tried both on the same day one time and intensity was a problem.

    Big compound moves will boost your testosterone and increase overall body mass so even if you are trying to get a massive uper-body or get bigger biceps deadlifts will still help, a great deal. It's also the fact that you are stabilising the weight and holding on to it that will work your arms in their entirety. That said if you want bigger biceps I wouldn't focus on deadlifts but I wouldn't exclude them from your program, the same as I wouldn't exclude squats.

    Do deadlifts and squats to work their target muscles. Not for some mythical testosterone boost.

    The testosterone boost from squat and deadlift is negligible. I bet watching porn without fapping raise your test level as much as squatting.

    OP, DL works pretty much everything at different degree. Hypertrophy will be noticable in traps, forearm, spinal erectos, butt, hamstring.
