Light Squats Before Deadlifts?


How many of you do a light set of squats before you dead lifts? I have found they give me a good warm up?

Wendlers fullbody template has deload percentages squat before Deadlifts.


I’ve started doing dumbbell snatches before deadlifting, working up to doubles.
My pull feels faster, but my back is still totally fresh from such a light load…
