It depends on several factors.

--% of one rep max used.
--Overall workout structure.
--Training level.

In general, when the volume and intensity is reasonable, I recommend:

--Deadlifts - once a week.
--Squats 1-3 times per week.

A beginner will not pay the same CNS price that an experienced lifter will, so they can often deadlift more frequently.
