The guys that I have trained strongman with before, do squats and deads towards the middle of the week. This way your legs are recovered for your strongman workout and also your legs will recover before your squat workout.
By the way guys, I am looking into buying a strongman log or getting it for my birthday.
I dont really have problem with deads and then strongman the next day. I notice a little fatigue in stone loading, but I feel that help simulate a comp pretty good. You arent ever going to do stones at a comp when fresh.
