    I know it works your back but its also a leg exercise?... Ive been reading that working your lower back can lead to spinal injuries later on in life...

    I dont know, maybe im being paranoid, but my lower back was feeling a little bit of soreness/pain on each pull so I backed off of it.

    if its your first time doing it, most of the load will go to your lower back since its probably stronger than your glutes and hammies. after a month or so, you'll start recruiting more of your glutes and hammies as they get stronger and are able to accomodate the load

    if you're feeling soreness in your lowerback from doing deads i'd stop right away. in fact you should stop doing any exercises that make you sore anywhere. you probably have aids or some sort of hemoglobin deficiency. use a condom next time.

    ok, so should I be working with lower weight until then?

    what is a good amount of reps and sets for dead lift and should I only work it out once a week or twice a week. Ive been doing legs twice a week.

    ps, thank you for actually answering my question, this is what i was getting at

    thanks alot you fucking sarcastic trolls :wtc:

    I do deads once a week with back. Depending on where it falls in my workout at the beginning or middle depends on the weight I use. However, I would suggest starting with lower weight and getting your form down correctly (I have pulled my back before doing them and it does suck) and then slowly adding weight to where you are comfortable with it.

    Reps and sets it completely determinate on what your normal workout does. I know some people who do 8 sets of 3 reps, 5 sets of 5 reps, and 3 sets of 10-12 reps.
