Back and Shoulders Workout With Deadlift Finisher

Share this article

back and shoulders workout

Give a different feel to your back and shoulders workout

Deadlifts are normally added as a beginning exercise to a workout and that makes sense as it’s a big compound that works the whole body.

Adding it to the end of your workout when you are already fatigued gives a new stimulus

Your strongest muscle fibres are already depleted and tired so your weaker, redundant muscles will be forced to take up the slack which means you can’t lift as much but the stimulus will be new.

Bodybuilding is all about stimulating the muscle fibres in new ways so as to get maximum failure signal.  This in turn creates more signals for adaption which means more muscle growth long term.

Sets and Reps

  • Superset
    Cable Lat Pullover
    High Cable Row

  • T Bar Row

  • Shoulder Press

  • Superset
    Lat Pulldown Reverse Grip
    Arnold Press

  • Dumbbell Deadlift


You should aim for 3-4 sets and 10-15 reps for each exercise.

For the big compounds a minimum of 5 reps.

Remember this is a bodybuilding workout not a strength workout.  Strength is a welcome side effect of more muscle not the main goal.
