    when i was able to do them i felt them all over my body. i used my legs a lot more than more deadlifters do, so i felt it in my quads and hams, but alot in my low back, traps, forearms, basically all over.

    Deads and squats are the 2 big exercises. They work the whole body.

    In particular I would feel sore in my traps, lower back, quads and hams.

    Lower back and traps, that's about it. Maybe hamstring if I used poor form and stiffed a heavy lift up, but usually legs aren't much affected.

    My left trap hurts like a mother after deads and shrugs. For a couple of workouts I was pain free I attribute that to the NO2 I was taking. A week after I stopped the pain returned. I also think I might some kind of minor neck injury. I haven't got it checked out yet cuz I'm low on funds and unemployed.

    Probably not, they are one of the biggest contributors to the lift.
