    Thursday is my back day and Saturday is legs. I often find my legs still sore from deadlifting by Saturday. Should I just work through it or change my routine or what.

    my legs never get sore after deads, but squating gets my lower back so i normally alternates squats with deads. but i you legs feel weaker than i would do swap legs with back day so you can hit your legs as hard as possible. or may be do back on wednesday. so leaves a longer rest.

    How come nobody here ever listens to me? How many of you are dissatisfied with your squat/deadlift and do both? I bet a lot of you! The problems outlined in this thread are reality folks. You would make your best gains if you pick one or the other exercise. The squat is the better of the two to pick in my opinion, if you train the rest of your body with compound exercises you will not be lacking in anything by skipping the deadlift. However, if you DO choose the deadlift, then perform your deads first on LEG day and follow them with heavy leg presses and then extensions and curls. Performing both squats and deads are too much for most people, resulting in overtraining for either the lower back, legs, or both. Now, all of you who will chime in and say that they do both and make great progress etc., had better be sqautting 400+ for reps and deadlifting 450+ for reps. If you squat 300 lbs for reps and deadlift 400 lbs for reps, that is good, but you could be doing better by picking one or the other.

    You are all brainwashed by the various bbing media sources into believing that you must do both exercises, and that the dead is the "holy grail" of weightlifting. Remember what I like to say, learn to "think outside of the box"!

    don't you mean "outside of the rack" Chris?



    seriously though, I understand where you are coming from.

    Chris, aren't you the person that says 'do what works best for you'?

    Thought so...

    We got a DPS over a DYT, give me stat. Ok, BP is 90 over 100 and the YT is dem past the WP. The AS is bigger than the DL and the HS is less than the QWR.

    We got a gonner here...

    Santa will be so upset, as will Beercan who now has no helper to make little green wooden bicycles...

    Yes, I do encourage people to do what works best for them, but if they aren't getting the results they want, then possibly they are not doing what is best for them?

    I think every now and then, we should all put down our textbooks, training logs, and protein shakes, and shut the hell up and listen to chris.

    Hey guys, think of it this way, what have you got to lose? You certainly won't get any smaller, and you just might be pleasantly surprised.

    A big ditto to what Chris said.

    I have trouble pullnig and Squating in the same cycle, unless I seriously limit some other work. Also, I have to have the two separated by as many days as possible.

    (of course, right now I AM doing both, but I'm essentially just training the thre powerlifts with a little bit of assistance work. I'm also not training to failure...)

    Certainly, if doing one is limiting your performance on another, I'd drop one, and the one I would drop is the deadlift.
