    Is anybody else wild about deadlifts? These things are so awesome - they make you sore everywhere! It's a rush pulling heavy weight right out off the floor - someone described it as akin to derooting a tree with your hands - haha, so awesome, love 'em.

    Yes. Started doing dead lifts in high school on the power lifting team. The more dead lifts the greater overall strength, muscularity, and coordination. Dead lifts are my favorite--hurts so good!

    Finally someone who understands! I don't see too many people doing them - at least at my gym. I guess we're just badass ;)

    I'd rather deadlift any time over squats of any kind.

    I love them all! Bunz, back and thighs thank me at least 4 days after doing them.

    I love deadlifts. Yeah, I'm a skinny ass (people assume only the big bodybuilder types can deadlift), but still I do deadlifts as part of my back and legs routine.

    I love deadlifts, just did them last night. But wouldn't take that over squats, love my leg workouts much more.

    I love deadlifts because I get to lift big boy weights when I do them! icon_biggrin.gif

    YES! They are my absolute favorite exercise! And you're right, I don't see many people doing them at the gym. I'll take deadlifts any day over squats.

    I haven't done traditional dead lifts in a while (properly done, you usually end up bloody), but, I have, and, it shows.

    I do deadlifts. I hate them with a passion. They drain me out so quickly its disgusting. I do them last and call it a day since they pretty much pwn me.

    I have a love/hate relationship with deadlifts. It's like it takes some willpower to say "OK I'm gonna do them," and then they kick my ass so good I love it. Usually after 5 days or so I start getting the itch to do them again - they're kind of addictive even though they hurt like all get-out! I did them yesterday and I'm so friggin sore. Doing box jumps after the deadlifts probably didn't help preventing soreness either, haha.

    I did them today 4 sets of 10 at 315Lbs. I am going to stay light for a few weeks then try to break my personal best. Deads are my favorite exerciseicon_biggrin.gif

    That's how I feel about squats. But I don't love the fact that they kick my ass either. I would be perfectly happy if I never had to squat again. But that's not gonna happen.

    I like how the doms don't kick in until 2 days later from them. It's the only exercise I do that does that.

    Deads can fuck people up so bad though. I love 'em. Always feel 5 centimeters taller after doing heavy deadlifts.

    I started putting deadlifts and squats in my workout. There is definitely a difference in putting full-body exercises into a routine. It jump started my workout again. I am exhausted after those two exercises but I feel great afterwards.
