Well i went to the gym yesterday and finally tried squats and deadlifts, and wow they really killed. My legs are so damn sore and so is my lower back (from deadlifts?).
But i was just wondering i didnt feel deadlifts as much in my legs as i did in my lower back, am i doing something wrong or is it just the excercise.
alot of people do deadlifts somewhat like (only example i can think of) ronnie coleman, with more back then legs
i do them that way too
me too... sometimes when DLing heavy, i kinda feel a tweak or somethin in my back.... im sure this isnt normal ??Originally Posted by greathuskie

Your probably doing them more like a stiff legged deadlift, chest should be high throughout the movement.
I myself always wonder why people don't like using a lot of leg drive when Deadlifting. I find it helps. But I guess people are different.

i would think when deadlifting, you would feel it more in your back than in your legs....it is the king of back exercises.....
Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse
