I was wondering if it was alright to deadlift and do olympic lifts during the same program. I've heard things about deadlifting being such a strain on your body that it's a bad idea to be pulling with the olympic lifts too. Also, if it's not a bad idea to be doing them regularly, how should I space, and on what day (arms, chest/back, leg) should I be doing each.
Currently I don't do Olympic lifts too often, mainly only the power clean, but I really want to get the benefits out of these lifts without giving up the deadlift ( My personal favorite).
On a side note, my basketball coach would send us in the weightroom, have us do squats, deadlifts, power snatch, power clean, in that order and he never explained the proper way of doing any of these. I feel robbed and cheated.
Any advice and/or comments would be greatly appreciated.
