I fell it takes too much out of me to do heavy deadlift and heavy squat in the same week so i squat everyother week and deadlift every other week on wednesdays, howver i do warm up with squat on fridays. I once trained Deadlift and squat on the same day when i was just getting started and then my coach had me do squat first and deadlift second since deadlifting is a lot of strain on the whole body[/quote]
This makes sense. Really heavy sq and Dl is a lot in one session.
However, for speed work it works great. Box squat first, followed by speed pulls (westside style).
I train like this nearly all the time and just pulled 210kg (462lbs) in my first meet at JNR 82.5kg class.
So it really depends on your goals, your training age/level of strength and what your training for in that particular session…max strength, speed, muscle size etc
