    Again Tough Old Man "not so TUFF"

    Well today I worked the back muscle and some shoulders. Today was my first day ever doing DEADLIFTS. Below was todays routine
    - deadlift...5 x 3-6
    - Bent row...3 x 4-6
    - pull down...2 x 4-6
    -seated row...3 x 4-6
    - Upright row...3 x 4-6
    - shrugs...3 x 4-6
    - ez curl...3 x 4-6
    Here was the amount for deadlifts.
    6x150/ 6x160/ 6x170/ 6x180/ 6/150
    Gentleman it is two hours later and I feel like I'm gonna fall over. MY ? is
    Do you guys perform deadlift every week or every other week, and will it get easier. I will add weight everytime i perform deadlift, but I really don't like feeling like someone took a sledge hammer to me

    That's a pretty good DL session for your first and it will get easier. I've always been a fan of lower reps for the DL (2-4).

    Dead lifts hurt (sore) me more then squats, they do feel like someone took a sludge hammer to your back for the first couple of weeks you do it, however they will get better. Keep at them!
