Y'all do dead's on leg days or back days? I have been doing 'em on leg and ab's but was talking with a buddy who does them on back days...
so I was just thinking about which day would be better.
what do y'all do and why?

I do:
chest, shoulders and tri's (tues)
run 6 mile (Weds)
legs and ab's (Thrs)
run 6 miles (Fri)
back and bi's (Sat)
run 4 mile fartlek's (Sun)
rest day (Mon)

I don't have a back day. I have a deadlift day. I might do assistance back work on deadlift day, though. I wouldn't DL after squatting because of fatigue, but that's me

Yep same here.


I prefer to train movements, not body parts.


To expand on this, before I really got into Oly again, it was like this:

Bench day

Squat and push press day

Deadlift day

followed by accessory work and conditioning. I don't like focusing on body parts, though it does have it's uses for some people (bodybuilders and such)

^^this and pretty good advise also.


I don't have a back day either. I have Squat day, Overhead press day, deadlift day and bench day. All my assistance work is mixed in with that.

I do straight legged deadlifts on leg day. My hamstrings really respond to that particular lift.

After you get done with starting strength or strong lifts, dead lifts are done on dead lift day.

yeah... deadlift days...

If you do bodypart splits because you're into bodybuilding, then deadlift variants should be done on glute/ham or leg day.

I do them on back day, first thing. I space back day as far from leg day as possible

I dont understand how people lump deadlifts as a Back, rather than Leg exercise...

If you're frying your back off your deadlifts, not your hams/glutes, you're doing them wrong and not engaging the appropriate prime movers. (or your force transducers, e.g. paraspinals are extremely lacking in strength.)

there is no other explanation.

This. Squat and Deadlift both huge lifts, I honestly could not give 100% on either if I did them on the same day during the same session. Seems counter productive. DLs are more of a back exercise than legs anyways the heavier they get it seems to me.

That's good. So now when there is a major accident inside the food pantry at your house, and a family member is buried under a pile of canned food, everyone in the house will shout for you to come and help, and you'll stride in there confidently and lift every can off the victim. Even the big, 5 lbs cans of creamed corn. And you won't even sweat. And you will be the hero. And there will be much rejoicing. And there will be soup!

Kidding aside; a healthy person is usually able to DL their body-weight with minimal training. A healthy person would be using their gym time inefficiently by DL'ing kettlebells.

Mudguts pretty much already nailed it, but seriously- that's not a strength movement for a healthy adult. My 60# 9 year old does deadlifts with my 53# kettlebell.

Get a barbell and put a bit of weight on it.
