    Dead Lift Help?

    I want to start doing deadlifts and im curious as to how often to do them i have read every 10 days every other week. Should i do them on squat days and if so before or after the squats. and what should the form be like?

    Depends on the rest of your training.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Agree w/ Paul.

    Personally I do them once a week on their own day. My Lifts have been progressing nicely.

    Deadlifts on back day. 5-7 working sets, once a week. I cannot do squats and deads on the same day. I`ve heard of people who do, but I do so mant sets, I`m wiped out afterwards.

    I do 2 leg days per week. One of them is heavy dead and light speed squats, the other day is heavy squats and light speed deads.
