Default AM/PM workouts. Compounds in the morning, Assistance in the evening?

I was reading up on working out twice a day on these two links at the bottom. I have a home gym and i can workout both in the morning and in the evening. How would you program 531 boring but big into twice a day with a mon, tues, thurs, friday split? Im not sure if i can deadlift twice a day, and shoulders isnt as demanding as the rest so i think i can fit that in one workout. Or would you guys program it a different way to be more optimal? Im not sure how to program it. Any advice welcomed!

Bumping this to see if anyone with more experience has a specific answer for you.

I don't see anything wrong with doing a morning evening split with your lifts. If fact, it might be beneficial. Even with deadlifting as the second session is a lot lower intensity.

I'd do the main lift in the morning, then the 5x 10 sets and anything else in the evening. At least I'd start that way and see what happened. If it wasn't working, I'd simply change it to something else. Never hurts to experiment. You have to find what is optimal for you which could easily be different than what other people are doing.

Just my .02.

Good luck!

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96

I did this for about 3-4 months, maybe more I can't quite recall, last year. I only stopped cos of time restraints.

Day 1: Bench
2: SQ/DL
3:Bench
4: SQ/DL
5:Bench
6: SQ/DL
7: OFF

That was in the evenings and in the mornings I overhead pressed and did the quick lifts.

BUT...

I think it's the type of thing you need to work into and have the right mentality for. You don't work to the bone in every session, it's a lot of form practice, drilling the lifts over and over. If you destroy yourself or even push too far one session you'll be wrecked and unable to complete the week.

I also deloaded a lot, so you could do. But I would seriously ask yourself why you're doing it and if your reasons are good enough.

That was exactly my first thought.
