This is how I am starting to feel. By week 2 my lats are so fatigued that deadlift workouts are nearly a wash.

My squats seem better capable of handling the volume but I have been wasting time on box squats when I feel a light squat day would be more beneficial.

One note I would mention to anyone considering this method...start slow. You will learn a lot during the first 6 weeks. I feel I may have been better off first adding a second deadlift day for a while and slowly building it from a lighter day to a moderate day.

Going real heavy has really paid off, but I moved from square A to square C in some aspects, skipping an intermediary stage. This sounds worse than it is, of course. I could continue to run the program as is, but I simply don't feel my deadlift workouts during week 2 are giving me much.

I welcome all thoughts, of course.
