    power lifting






    is it ok to perform heavy squats and deadlifts on the same day twice a week? i usually do them on tuesdays and fridays with wedneday being a rest day and monday and thursday being mainly arms and chest.

    i personally wouldn't work with 90+% of 1rm on deads and squats in the same workout, much less twice a week. i guess you can try it and see if you start overtraining at which point you can do a deloading phase of lower intensity training for a week. if you insist on DL'ing and squatting in the same workout, work one strength component with deads (ie absolute strength) and another facet of strength with the squats (strength-endurance, speed-strength w/e) or vice versa, that might be just enough to keep you from overtraining.

    I have had no problem performing both lifts back to back in a workout, but I was doing 5+ repetitions for each lift. Like Yanick said, don't try to max out with both of them. That is incredible strain on your central nervous system.

    Just to clarify, when say 'max out', i guess you are referring about going to failure? or doing 1RM's or both/either?

    Sorry. When I say max out I mean attempting a 1RM. Hell, even a 3RM with both exercises is probably going to be pretty tough on your CNS if performed twice per week.

    I agree with Cowpimp that is too much strain on your CNS........you will probably find that if you hold back a bit and train less often in the long run your gains will be much better and more consistent.
    Bench - 209IBS x 1
    Squat - 330IBS (253IBS x 3 reps below parrallel)
    Deadlift - 363IBS x 3 reps

    ...at 148 IBS bodyweight

    ................and getting stronger
