I’m trying to simplify my strength program a little more and have a few questions on some stuff I learned while searching this forum.
Do deadlifts hit the hamstrings enough to be the only exercise for them or is a straight legged move needed? I don’t feel anything in my hams when I do them. Mostly hip flexors, lower back and glutes. If I do deadlifts one day and squats another will my legs muscles be balanced?
I can’t remember who said this, I think Christian Thibaudeau or Chad Waterbury, that dips were considered vertical push when trying to seperate upper body moves into vertical or horizontal days. Also Arthur Drechsler says in his encyclopedia that when overhead pressing was an event dips were used all the time in training. Does this mean dips can be a replacment for overhead pressing moves?
Thanks in advance.
