You certainly could try, but if you do, I would ease into it. I don't want to hold you back from learning and trying new things.

My only caveat is that if you are going to squat 2x a week and deadlift 2x a week, ease into it with a lighter weight and slowly build weight each workout. Learn how your body handles things before you dive in deep with heavy weight 2x a week. Maybe take a month to ramp up - or 8 squat and deadlift workouts.

Doug himself advocated many different approaches with his methodology. One of his 4 day per week programs had deadlifts one day, and high pulls on the second deadlift day.

Then again, one of his 3 day per week workouts had deadlifts on Monday and Friday and high pulls on Wednesday.

I think im going to try the 4 day split with just the main lifts for a week or two with 75%-80% max. Depending on how I do I will either drop the second DL day and do bench squat twice a week or start to add in the other lifts like you mentioned. Again thanks for the quick response
