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.

I started doing them a fair while after I started working out too. I always saw people doing them, and eventually gave it a go with the help of a PT friend.

Make sure you have opened up your hips first and have some decent mobility in them. I pretty much roll out on my piriformis with a tennis ball every second or third day and I'm doing hip mobility stuff everyday for 10-15 minutes. Feeling as good as ever again.

Are you trying to lose weight or gain weight my dude? I've heard that regular soda is better for you regardless, in terms of losing wieght. (Soda isn;t a good way to lose weight.)

I apologize but I do't know the difference between kilos and LBS.

And if you consider it a back work out? pull ups,lat pull downs,bent over rows,the whole 9 yards work just fine.

Are dead-lifts really necessary? I think they are dangerous and your ticket to snap city, it's pointless for a lot of people.

I don't only train for aesthetics, I train for performance and I still find this exercise unnecessary and dangerous.

You have to get a tennis ball, or deep tissue massage right on the side of your butt essentially. I guess the easiest way to understand where it is, is feel the pelvic bone at the front of your hips, then go around to the back at the same height essentially, and you'll reach the outside of your glutes, and that's where you stick the tennis ball to massage. There are plenty of videos on youtube.

You have to learn to love squats people. I think doing squats brings more than deadlifts but you should really do them both.

I try to stay away from doing deadlifts, just to avoid any potential lower back issues in the future.
