Why would you even want to do that? Supersetting squats and deadlifts would mean that you won’t be able to lift as much weight as when doing those exercises separately. Doesn’t make much sense to me, but why don’t you try it and tell us how it works?’[/quote]
Well, I think it’s similar to pre-exhaust supersets. You can’t lift as much in the compound exercise, but it gives your body a greater shock.
Knowing this, I was thinking, “If I superset the two best growth stimulating exercises, would that give my body an incredible shock?”
I wanna try this because of the challenge and the possible growth it can give me (I did this before with the 20-rep Super Squats and I loved the results as well as the challenge). However, I’m posting here so that I can learn from your experiences regarding this and maybe get a few warnings as well. If I get enough bad experiences from you, I’ll forget about trying it.
On a totally unrelated note, why does your profile state that you have “a few years” training when just yesterday you said: Yup, I am a thin weakling and I’ve been training for just over a year ?
I updated my profile because I remembered that I did other forms of training, like para-military stuff, before actually lifting weights in the gym.

You will probably die, honestly i have tried them before and decided that they were better off not in my training as a superset. I was huffing and puffing as if i had just been sprinting after only a couple of supersets. If i were to add this in my program, it would be solely for conditioning[/quote]
A couple of supersets? Hmm, maybe I should just do one all-out superset to failure on both exercises, similar to the 20-rep Super Squats.
Logically following that to deadlifts and squats - both exercises stress hip and knee extension while maintaining a neutral spine. Try doing the squats first something around 3-6 reps immediately followed by a much higher deadlift of 8-10 reps.
Worst case is you pass out (and kill yourself) in the deadlifts or the second set of squats. Get a good spotter and some safety pins because it could be a wild ride.[/quote]
What kind of deadlift would you recommend? Stiff-leg, Romanian or conventional (I usually do Romanian)? What would be the difference between the three?
Yeah, I’m gonna need a spotter since my gym doesn’t have a power rack or a squat rack.
