Today's my first day on WBB2 and I've got a question about the routine:
*OR* ?Day 1: Chest and Back
Wide Grip Pull Downs or Deadlifts 2x9-11
I hate deadlifts, so I'd love to just do the pulldowns, but they don't even work the same muscle groups, do they?
Front and Rear Pulldowns do the same thing it seems, neither of which operate the same muscles deadlifts do. How can they be interchanged?
Dude, don't cripple yourself. Do deadlifts. They are one of the best exercises out there.
You'd be best off learning how to LOVE deadlifts. They're a very important key to strength in the weight room.
Don't take the easy way out.
Once you start doing them and add weight to the bar you start feeling like a beast after your done with them.
375/300/365 Goal by summer:415/315/415
Yea...I gotta agree here. I can't imagine not doing deadlifts.
I was confused about wbb2 here too...that's one of the reasons I didn't follow it too closely. One of the exercises does lats, the other does the entire back.

That's fine, I'll stick with the deads.
But that doesn't address the original question - why does this routine suggest they're interchangeable if they work different muscle groups?
