wrong forum, there is a workout forum here.
for building mass, I try to stick to reps under 10, preferably 4-8.
Where is deadlifts in your back routine? They're the best mass builder out there.
Also what does your leg workout look like?

Deadlifts are a core exercise that should be included in every back routine IMO. Yes, they are painful, and I "dont like" them either, but I do them because they are necessary for growth.

For me, theyve been invaluable in adding thickness to my lats and also have helped my traps gain some size. Like I said, if youre not feeling it there try correcting your form.

- it is very hot in here!!!
A power lifter at my gym showed me an alternate way of doing deadlifts that really helped me out...maybe you could give this a try and see how you like it.
My gym has those barbells that have a U-bend in them which most ppl use for doing shrugs. I found that by using this bar instead of the conventional straight barbell it helped alleviate some of the stress on my lower back by allowing me to keep the weight closer to my body.
I found that it not only relieved stress but it also allowed me to increase the weight I use to perform the exercise.
But yes deadlifts rank right up there with heavy squats....they really suck to do but after doing them you get an intense pump.
