I go to the gym 5 days a week and can honestly say I've never deadlifted.

Why not stick to Pepsi Max? It has no calories. I mean, its not good for you, but at least you don't have to worry about empty calories.

Probably any form of direct overhead pressing. I work as a painter in amongst university, so my shoulders and traps are always getting 8 hours of overhead work before I even step in the gym most days.

my ab exercise is lying on the back, raising and lowering the feet. it's pretty inefficient and boring as hell. really need to find an alt.

i think you can do one on those big rubber balls. they have those at the rec center.

I got way too excessive and heavy with them, and couple that with the fact that I was sitting a lot throughout the day due to studying/lectures/classes at university, it really tightened up my hips, and I didn't even realize. Caused a lot of what seemed like lower back problems, but it was actually just tight hip flexors, and a tight piriformis.

I honestly remember at one point just deadlifting whenever I was bored, or just felt like I wanted a bit of exercise. So essentially I was deadlifting 3 days a week, and put up nearly 35 sets of the stuff... Vary from anywhere to light 10 rep sets of 135-220lbs, to doing heavy doubles of 450-500lbs.

These days I stretch like a mofo and keep it to about 4 sets a week lol...

Its not healthy or anything, but its 0 calories. I've heard of a lot of bodybuilders drinking this stuff to suppress hunger cravings due to the extra caffeine, even right before shows.

I drank it while cutting, and I'm talking decent amounts on certain days, and found it had no impact on how I lost weight.

On lower body days for me I usually stretch first, then ride the bike for 10 minutes to loosen up. After that I go squat whatever I do for that. ( Don't really keep track, 2-3 plates each side.) Then I do leg extensions and curls on the machines that have at my gym. I go heavy weights with those, I'm trying to bulk up as I play semi-pro football during the late summer/early fall.

I've just never had the jolt to go and deadlift. I've talked to friends that have said it helps a lot. I guess I should just start doing it.
