    deadlifts and squatts on consecutive days

    guys i wanted to know peoples thoughts on doing squatts on a monday and deadlifts on a tuesday?????

    would you advise moving it to weds as that is the latest i can do them in the week as need to be fresh for rugby on a sat or is it ok to do them on consecutive days withought 48 hours for my cns to recouperate?

    also doing squatts today and i was going fully deep on 140kg's but my mate was doing partial reps on 160kg's prob a 1/3 of the way down - now is it benefical to go as heavy as poss on a couple of sets and then drop the weight and do full sets or should i just stick with 4 full sets of 6?

    cheers

    There are of course always many different perspectives and good opinions.

    I would seperate at least a day. I do legs on Tuesday and deads/back on Thursday.

    On squats, I would say to mix things up and maybe try both methods. The heavier you go the more cautious you need to be with running them deep. Doing 1/3 is not good all the time... Here is a leg work that hits mine pretty hard with some variations in depth. Did this morning for squat exercise.

    135 (warmup) 10 reps
    225 (warmup) 10 reps
    315 ass to ground 10 reps
    405 parralel or close to it 6-8 reps
    405 parralel or close to it 6-8 reps
    315 parralel 8 reps
    225 legs close together ass to ground 10 reps

    then on to leg press, etc...

    mix it up some and see how it goes.

    should you do your squats all together? or is it okay to walk around from machine to machine and do 1 x squat 1 x leg press 1 x leg extension and do that over 4 times?

    Could you do it? Yes
    Would I? No

    After leg day, my lower body is done for a few days
    I usually do back on a Tuesday or Wednesday and legs Friday

    Yes, stick to an exercise and do it 4 times, then move on to the next
