    Been going the gym every day since classes started, and I have yet to ever see anyone else deadlift ever.

    Plenty. Maybe my college gym is out of the norm, but I see lots of people doing squats/deadlifts. Then again, there are also the teams of idiots hogging the bench or doing curls in the rack. Good thing though is that they usually stick to the machines area near the cardio room. Guess so the girlies can see the peak on their biceps as they curl 50lbs while their buddy screams in their face.

    I'm a college student, but I don't workout at my school's gym. At the 24hr fitness I go to, I've seen one person deadlift on one occasion and I go 4x a week.

    I rarely see people do conv. deads at my gym but occasionally I'll witness somebody doing SLDLs with light weight. We have quite a few people that squat when I'm there though.

    I forgot what school you go to. :confused:

    yeah, but I dont know if you remember, i made a few threads a month or so back aboput me getting back into squatting after injuring my ankle in track. Right now I'm using the smith machine becasue of the stability, if my ankle starts to hurt/ give I can immediatly take the pressure off of it.

    I dont know, I'd imagine probably not, it probably gets crowded around 3. I usally go at like 9:30-10:00, by then most of the students clear out.

    I'm in college but I work out at golds. That being said, I've only seen a few other people deadlifting and often with no more than 185lbs....most I have seen any one do was 425 and that was ONCE in 5 years
