    Question Does deadlift work your quads at all?

    I know squat is more quad dominant and deadlift is mainly lower back, hams, and glutes. But still, does deadlift work your quads at all? If so, how much?

    Of course it does, but not a lot. A deadlift is more hamstrings than quads.

    The hip and back work do make it hamstring exercise with limited quad ROM.

    The initial lift off the ground I get a short feeling in quads and glutes, then hams, then lower back to finish.

    About as much as is necessary to go from whatever angle of knee flexion you're in at the bottom to get to lockout at the top.

    This. Kinda like Romanian Deadlift. It's a matter of how you shifted the lifting force.

    this. It's kind of like,, using your legs, but then you have to use your back too. It's all a matter of what body parts are moving.

    This, the reason why you can lift more weight with a dead lift is because of the ability to use your hams, glutes and lower back ONTOP of using your quads. If quads were eliminated, the dead lift would not be a strong lift at all. Also, try to visualize the motion and compare it to the motion of a squat, you will notice that considerable extension about the knee joint is present in both cases.

    When I do my deadlifts correctly, I do feel it in my quads first. When I don't, it's all lower back.

    I've been trying to get my form down correctly, but it seems hard for me.

    The squat isn't necessarily quad dominant, depends on bar placement and form.
