    Adding deadlifts

    im doing a push/pull/legs routine and my question is i do stiff leg deadlifts for hamstrings on wednesdays and i workout back on mondays. if i wanted to add deadlifts to my back workout would this be ok? should i stop doing stiff leg on wednesday and just add curls or move legs to friday?

    here is my routine

    monday-pull
    reverse grip shoulder width pulldowns
    barbell rows pulled to upper abs
    stiff arm pulldowns
    barbell curls
    hammer curls
    shrugs
    wrist curls

    wednesday-legs
    squats
    front squats
    leg extensions
    stiff leg deadlifts
    lying leg curls
    standing calf raises
    seated calf raises

    friday-push
    bench press
    dumbbell incline press
    hammer strength decline press
    dumbbell seated press
    side dumbbell laterals
    military press
    close bench press
    lying barbell extensions

    2 working sets per exercise

    i would take stiff arm pulldowns out and put deadlifts first in the workout then pulldowns then rows.

    thanks for all the help in advance.

    I do 4 sets of 5-7 on back day and 2 sets of 6-8 on leg day. Throw them in on both days and see how it goes. I have never done deads until about 3 weeks ago and I am hooked.
    Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
