Barbell / Leg question
I currently do a three day split:
Monday: Bis and Back
Wednesday: Tris and chest
On Mondays I do deadlifts, and I've changed my technique somewhat due to a thread i read on here. Basically, I lower the bar all the way to the floor, then lift from a 'dead' position. Previously I was lowering the bar to about a foot off the floor. This was stressful on my back, and the new technique (where i lift the bar from a dead position each rep), feels great on the back.
However, the new deadlift technique means I feel it a lot more on the legs. After doing my legs on saturday, i tried to do deadlifts last nite as part of my bicep and back routine, and my legs were still crushed from saturday, and i could only hit out about 4 deadlifts before my legs gave way.
Now my leg routine is new, so is this just a case of me needing to get used to the leg routine, and then as i progress with it, i will be able to do deadlifts fine on the monday?
Also, how much emphasis should there be on the legs during deadlifts? Its just that as im doing deadlifts on bicep and back day, i would have thought it would be hitting those areas more, but it appears to be hitting legs more?!?
Thanks in advance,
