    Quick question regarding deadlifts, do people do them as part of their leg routine or include it as part of their back routine?

    most ppl do as part of back-training, i think. but you should look at this as a wholebody-lift

    Bodybuilders do it as part of their back routine.

    Or do something like squat one week, deadlift another. This may or may not work with you. I personally don't like doing ME Squats or Deadlifts more then once everyother week. With that being said, I do a near maximal variant on the week I don't do the main. So something like

    Week 1
    Squat ME
    Rack Pulls

    Week 2
    Deadlift ME
    Box Squats

    But yeah like most people are saying here, at least do squats and deadlifts on different days. I think Entropy said something about them being very similar in muscle usage overall.

    I was doing my routine like this but switched my bench and deadlift days around so my hamstrings and glutes could be rested for leg day.

    Either:

    1) You are a freak
    2) You are young
    3) You are a Power to the People user

    Beyond that, I don't think many people can do heavy deadlifts everyday. That's really taxing. But hey, whatever works.
