So here’s the template I’ve come up with.
WORKOUT TEMPLATE:

+1-2 accessories + General conditioning or Work Capacity WEEK 2: 3x5@80%

FRIDAY: (AM)Deadlift/Pull-up at prescribed percentages

SATURDAY:Long Run (5+ miles)

SUNDAY: OFF

The only caveat is that I mix up weighted and bodyweight pullups.

I was wondering what everyone’s thoughts on this were. The strength portion of the workout was derived from tactical barbell’s “Zulu” template. I found no reviews of it on this site. I was wondering what everyone thought about squat and deadlifting consecutively, two days per week like this. The volume is low, allowing for other training and the program uses wave periodization.

Other things to note, I am in the army in a specialized program and currently have about 4 or 5 weeks left before my next phase. Which means all I really do is train lol. Trying to regain strength after some tough training where I lost weight and a lot of strength. I chose this program because it allows me to add in conditioning and cardio on top of my strength training. Let me know what you think.
