Should I deadlift on my pull day (back of course) or on my leg day. Or should I just do my legs on my pull day so that deadlifting will be beneficial for both my back and legs without worrying about recovery time?
Current routine looks like this.
Day 1: Push
(flat BB bench, Pec Fly, Military press, Dips)
Day 2: HIIT
Day 3: Pull
(Standing BB curl, Deadlift, Bent over BB row, Pull ups, Shrugs)
Day 4: Off
Day 5: Off
Day 6: Legs
(Squat, Seated calf machine, Leg press)
Day 7: Off
Any input would be appreciated.

Considering you're doing squats on leg day, and assuming the deads you plan on doing are conventional (as opposed to straight leg), do them on back day.

Awesome. Thank you.
And for maximum back involvement and minimal leg involvement what should my hip position be apporximately (knowing that it does vary between people for various reasons)?
do you do a lot of pushing with the pec dec???
JEEP is a 4 letter word, therefore it must be dirty.
This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal all this pain is an illusion...
I am addicted to fast food...
Yes I do. Isn't the pec dec the pec fly? It seems like a pushing motion to me (although it could be construed as a pulling motion).

I also have a deadlift question. When you do a set of deadlifts does the motion have to be constant or can you put the weight down and reset your form, because I have trouble keeping my form right during a set. I can probably lift 250-300lbs once with good form, but I have been doing 105 pounds sets since I started lifting because I can't keep my form correct during a set.
The Iron never lies to you. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go, but 200 pounds is always 200 pounds - a warm-up.
