I am not a complete beginner but have neglected Deadlifting in the past to be honest, initially due to a training partner who 'didn't like' them and then literally just not being in the habit of doing them.
I am at a gym that doesn't have a squat rack/power rack so have been using leg press and smith machine squats as main leg exercises.
To get back into deadlifting I was going to start doing twice a week. At the end of back day with higher reps and also at the start of leg day with higher weight lower reps before moving onto the press/Smith.
Does this sound something worthwhile or am I wasting my time doing them twice a week.
