I try to train Max Effort both days. Some days I will do speed deads or rack pulls if I'm not felling but, I handle deads very well to and not so much on the squats.

Do you perform dumbbell or barbell rows at all? Just thinking out loud.

i used to train DL twice a week (helped me rocket up ), but even at my low strength level(compared to you), i cant deadlift twice a week anymore... i'm typically a cripple after deadlift for at least two days (although after yesterday's session, i feel oddly good today).

as you know i was experimenting with squatting a **** load of days a week, but deadlift messed it up... i had no good place to throw DL in, so i went back to a more normal schedule...

_________

anyway, i think different people handle it better than others... if you can train it twice a week, take full advantage of it and train it twice a week.... i recover from squats very well, unlike you and others, so i was trying to take advantage of that

I think if you follow the percentages as you've outlined and stay away from failure you could knock out two sessions a week for a long time.

I've been pushing it pretty hard, pretty much 90-100% of my max on deads and that is actually taking a toll on me. My next training cycle I'm going back to some more moderate percentages so I can hit it once a week.

The big issue for me now is...squat on the light deadlift day, or in between deadlift days...

I also love heavy RDLs, so I am also thinking that if I deadlift twice a week, I might be bumping RDLs.

Last year for two months I was determined to improve my strength and bulk up. I did four workouts a week, each with,

Squat
Bench
Row
Overhead press
Deadlift

and had warmup sets of 1x5 at 50% work weight, 1x5 at 66%, 1x5 at 75%, then 3x5 at work weight. I got stronger, and grew.

However, I was not moving anywhere near the weights BendTheBar would be moving. They were big weights for me, the 5 reps sometimes couldn't be completed and I had to add a makeup set - but they weren't big weights.

So I say, give it a go for a couple of weeks and see how you feel.

Deadlifts are a little more taxing on the body, many more muscle groups are used.

i honestly think it varies from person to person... at the weight i lift i couldnt DL max effort twice a week, but CMK does it twice a week often...

i can sqat multiple times in a week and be fine, when others have mentioned they could never do this...
