Deadlifts on their own day
I used to do deadlifts on back day (along with rows, pulldowns, and bis). But I have no energy after the deadlifts so the rest of my workout is crap.
So, I was thinking of taking one day out of the week and just doing deadlifts.
Is this a good idea? Does anyone else do this?

when i do deadlifts i do them on their own. it's such an ass kicker if you go really heavy and it wears me out so i go really heavy for 5 sets and call it good with maybe a couple sets of chins to finish it off.

Is doing them after squat day a horrible idea?
BTW, I see alot of guys complain about their forearms bustin' out on them when they do deads. I could dead a whole hell of alot more if my calisis on my hand didn't start to hurt. It's not my forearms, or my grip I don't think just my hands come into excruciating pain when I do them. I've tried gloves but they just don't work or feel right. I can't find straps newhere around my town..and I don't even understand how they work. I kinoff slouw

You could try using sponges. The 3*4inch dish sponges. Put one in each hand then grip bar.

I do deadlifts every week (actually my current routine I do SLDL every week). I split my routine so that I do my SLDL on Lower Back/Hamstring day (FRI) and my squats are done on Quads/Abs day (TUE) this allows me to do both of them spaced out enough.

I agree with JAYROD. deadlifts kick so many muscle groups ass all at the same time. once you're done, chose one of those muscle groups to "finish off"
Ie after deadlifts, do some light rows. or some hamstring curls, or some chins or even some light shrugs. whatever you want. even leg extensions. I've been doing it that way for years.
