I am having trouble planning out when I do deadlifts lately.
Right now i’m squatting every week, I planned to alternate between squat & deadlift, but my strength gains are soaring (partically my squat) so I’m hesistant to change what I’m doing.
I am worried that if I squat & deadlift in the same week (routinely) that either one will suffer. I noticed that when I did this a month ago, it was very hard to progress on them both.
Here’s my current training plan:
Tuesday: Legs (squat, leg press, leg ext, ghr, leg curl)
Friday: Back (Lat pulldown, barbell row, HS pulldown, cable row)
I also put the weights away at my gym two nights a week (i work there), which wears down my lower back quite a bit.
I thought that I could replace squats with deadlift every second or 3rd week. Or add them on back day every second or 3rd week.
