I've done 3 different routines that I can think of over the years that had squats and deads on the same day. RIppetoe Novice program, Madcow 5x5 and and the 20 rep squat H/L/M routine (which i believe is from an article that you wrote). All 3 routines where very successful for me at the time. So much so, that I would probably be open to using madcow and the 20 rep squat routine again in the future, now that I stop and think about it.
I would suggest that Mr. Brainiac try it for a couple months and see what kind of results he gets. Does He Even Lift?

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
