Deadlift Workout for a BIGGER Back

In this blog post you’re going to get a Deadlift workout routine that will help add size and thickness to your back.

If you are looking to build your strength, power, and fill out your T-shirt with muscle, then give this deadlift / back routine a try for yourself and leave me a comment below letting me know how it works for you.

Hey there, it’s your muscle building coach Lee Hayward, back in the basement with another muscle building workout 😉

Today you’re going to get a simple, yet very effective back workout that will add width and thickness to the lats, traps, and spinal erectors.

This is the complete deadlift / back workout:
– Deadlifts – sets of 5 reps, pyramiding up in weight for each set.
– Shrugs – 3 sets of 10 reps.
– Pull Ups / Chin Ups – between each exercise do a set of pull ups. Shoot for at least 5 sets of 5+ reps over the workout.
– Rubber Band Good Morning – 3-4 sets of 20+ reps.

*Start each exercise with as many lighter warm up sets as you feel you need in order to work up to your top working weight.

**Rest at least 3 minutes between sets for the deadlifts to allow for maximum weight to be lifted. For the other exercises rest 1-2 minutes between sets.

    Hey, how essential is the belt for Deadlifting? I never used it but I am starting to Deadlift some serious weight and don’t want any injuries.

  • Rob,

    Wearing a good belt with heavy deadlifts makes a huge difference. You’ll feel stronger and more solid with the belt. It would be a good investment.

  • Hey great article, very interesting to read. I have a similar article about building a bigger back on my blog here:

    Make sure you check it out!
