I can answer. You guys are coming at this from 2 different ends so you're not getting each other's point. In a conventional program, you want to ensure that your back is fresh before you do squats, therefore you don't squat after deadlifts and you don't squat 2 days in a row. In a high volume routine that you have progressed up to, as in this case, that goes out the window. Squatting in a chronically fatigued state gives you a stimulus that's hard to get otherwise, but it's an advanced technique that's not for everyone.
I don't do a high volume routine.
I know his point was to say that if you Squat after your Deadlifts you are doing so in a "fatigued" state.
BUT, Fatigue is extremely complex. It isn't just one workout that makes a difference. It's the whole layout which distributes fatigue.
I am doing Squats (which is very low in volume because I only do some heavy singles/doubles/triples) because it optimizes volume and allows me to focus on Deadlifts (which is the goal) and PC work.
I wasn't being a smartass. My point is that there are circular referencing statements.
We just had a little thread on this at GUS actually....Let me bring it up: http://www.gustrength.com/forum/t-42317 ... nking-postYou cannot deadlift very often because the deadlift is too hard on the body.
This is circular reasoning.
