I'm fairly new to heavy lifting. I've been working out at home with adjustable dumbbells (my only equipment). Working out 3 times/week, among the exercises I've had recommended are deadlifts and squats.
My feeling is that the movement of the dumbbell deadlift and squats is almost identical. So I'm wondering if (a) maybe I'm doing one of them incorrectly, (b) I should avoid doing both in the same routine, or (c) there's some crucial difference between dumbbell vs. barbell deadlifts that I'm missing out on. Which seems most likely, and what mistake or correction should I be on the lookout for?
