I’m in phase 2 of the Jacked Athlete 31 program, and it’s been great so far. Day 1 has clusters for squat, bench, deadlift, and chin ups. I find that doing heavy squats and deadlifts on the same day to be a bit much. Especially in week 2 which calls for 15-21 reps per lift @ 90-92%.
Which option is best to remedy this?
- Do squats only on the day prior (the off day)
- Reduce volume and do them both on the same day
- Reduce intensity and do them both on the same day
I did the first option last week, but thought there may be a better solution.
