5x5@80% Deadlift and Squat 5x10@50%


Is it ok to do deadlift as assistance 5x5@80% but for squats do 5x10@50%? We are talking boring but big template. I dont see why not, but im in no way a expert so please bear with me for my maybe stupid question.

Am i missing some for me unknown factor to consider?


It's not a dumb question. When writing personal programs, people always will do an initial prep phase, a few more different phases, and then I almost always mix and match parts the supplemental based on their needs, experiences and if I want to test something out.

Your example is ALWAYS used after a reset and done for no more than 3 cycles.


Thank you. Great answer. I really appreciate it.
