    Should I deadlift on back day or leg day?

    Just wondering which day would be ideal for deadlifts. I know they target both the legs as well as lower back. When do most of you guys deadlift?

    And I am talking just regular deadlift here, not straight leg or anything.

    DL's hit basically everything so it's up to you.... I personally prefer to do them on back day b/c i just feel it more in my back than my legs and so I can concentrate on squats come leg day... just me though

    I've done rack pulls and I love them. The only problem was when I did them, my back was soooo sore that I couldn't give myself a good leg workout lol

    I've performed the movement on both days. It's personal choice.

    I perform rack pulls on back day, usually.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    well i dont do deads from the floor, i do quarter deadlifts in a power rack and i always do them on back day because thats what they work. you should give them a try, you start from about halfway up the shin from a dead stop each time and perform it like a regular deadlift. trust me, you'll notice a huge difference in your back man. and also, do different rep ranges when doing them. i go as low as 8 and as high as 15. good luck

    well i used to do them on leg day but found that my legs were far more advanced than my back so i didnt feel it in the legs so i swaped it to back day and replaced it with squats
    The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens.

    On back day, I also stick with quarter dead lifts in the rack. IMHO I can stack the weight just a bit more and it gives more emphasis on my back.

    ^^^This. I've never grouped 2 heavy compound excercises together like squats/deads. I do squats/deads at the end of respective workout and pretty much exhaust myself as they are the final excercise.

    If you want even MORE opinions, evenly split between back and leg day, do a search. There are lots of threads on this exact topic.

    For ME, more of a back exercise than a leg exercise, which has much to do with my form.

    either works. i do straight leg deadlifts and i like working them on leg day - personally, i hate squats but love deadlifts, so DL is my prize after squatting. also, since leg day is also my core day, the lower back from DL fits in perfectly.

    although, as i said before, i love deadlifts. sometimes i do them on back day (in addition to leg day), partly for fun, partly to give a little extra kick to my back day.

    I do deadlift on my back days as my starting core lift. I am doing 5/3/1 and going pretty heavy on squats and deadlifts so it would be hard to get as much as I can out of both in one day. My final set of deadlift leaves me really exhausted. There is also a 3 day rest between my back and leg days just hitting the legs again for the second time in the week during deadlift is also beneficial in my mind.

    Back day for me due to the fact that squats kill me. At one time I did deads and squats same day and could never really put full effort into one or the other because I'd be so fried.

    x2. When I started lifting weights I started with strength programs (SS, 5x5, etc.) so I was often squatting and deadlifting on the same day. I've always mostly targeted my back on deadlifts, I don't feel anything in my legs.


    IMO form is what it all balls down too.

    +1 vote for back day. 2 big complex exercises in one day would not be beneficial IMO.

    i agree with back day, with the caveat that you should do it relatively far from your leg day. Deadlifts the day after heavy squats wouldn't be very beneficial for your lifts OR your CNS.

    I modified my workout so my back day is actually my back and hamstrings. I am doing this because I want to put more emphasis on my legs as well though, so my quads and calves are one day, and my back and hamstrings are another.

    Going to give it a shot and see how it goes.
