    So i've been doing a 5 day split with chest, legs, shoulders, back, and arms/calves. i've been doing the deadlift on back days. that's okay right?

    i think it'd kill me if i did it on leg days, since i typically do two type of squats (always back squat, then a front or hack squat). back days are usually deadlift, bent over rows, pull-ups, pulldowns, and sitting machine rows.

    you'd hate that rippetoe shit, deads are on a day that's 1st Squats, 2nd Bench, 3rd Deads.

    i cant wait to try deads first when i'm done with this, and see what i can lift.

    read somewhere it taxes your body too much if you do it more than twice a week. read also that it's recommended to only do it once a week. i think it was some t-nation article - not the recent ones dedicated to the deadlift.

    btw, has anyone broken blood vessels doing them? when i was on the bill starr, i'd occasionally see them on both my forearms after my final 5 rep set. it looked pretty cool, and didn't hurt or anything.

    i'm doing a mod. bill starr 5x5 routine

    middle day is squats/incline bench/deads (squats arent' so heavy tho)

    i usually don't end up doing all 5 sets because my body just gives out and my hands don't like it.

    i miss doing the bill starr and scoring PRs almost every week. gets a tad boring though, and you could lift just 3 days in the week.
