    Same Day Squats and deadlifts

    Do you usually do squats and deadlifts on the same day? Is it a bad idea to do them together?

    Personally, I follow my squats with some heavy lower back/hammy work like GM's or RDL's.

    That being said, a lot of people do squats and deads on the same day, a lot of people dont. Ask yourself, why do you plan on doing both on the same day and does it really fit in line with your training goals.

    Depends on your program. Lots of strength programs have them on the same day. However that's less common with splits.

    I have em on the same day and I do a split.

    Others usually do them on back day when doing their splits but I like the supplemental ham workout you get from deads.
    Start (fat guy):May 31 2009 - 205lbs ~34%bf
    (first large cut) July 31 2010 - 140 lbs ~14-15%bf
    (first bulk) March 1 2011 - 164lbs ~18-19%bf
    Currently (June 30, 2011) - 146lbs ~11-12% bf
    Ultimate Long term Goal - 170lbs @ 10%bf

    I would do them on the same day squats first then DL but came to find that I was not giving it my 100% on the DLs eventually I dropped DLs from my workouts but not for this reason.

    Maybe not a horrible idea at first but becomes increasingly more of a bad idea when the weight really starts going up.

    I was doing that when I started. Squat is a very intense exercise...your deadlift will increase at a slower rate if you do them after squats. I think you will get better results with dead lift if you do them on a different day. Since Im doing them seperatly from squat, im lifting more and more weight!

    Give it a try and youll see what u like the most.

    I prefer them on different days. I am on a full body routine and squat mon & fri, dead lift on wed. Deads are my only leg exercise on wed so it just works for my current routine to have them on different days.

    With my split workout I used to do them on the same day; that didn't last too long though. Squats are such an intense compound lift, why simultaneously follow them up the nearly the next most taxing compound lift?? One would always suffer, and I ended up just going though the motions without really pushing myself.

    Hence, my gains have been better since I split them up, but like others said, it depends upon your goals and specific routine.

    I do squats on RDL on leg day and deadlifts on back day. There is no way I could do squats and deadlifts with any kind of intensity on the same day.
