I'm in the test week of the 5TRM back squat programme, and intending to start the Daily Dose Deadlift plan next week. I'm wondering how best to balance the rest of my training with the programme. At the moment I'm lifting 3 days a week – squats every session (as per the 5TRM programme) followed by some variation of press (overhead / bench), a big pull (deadlift / power clean / farmers carry) and a selection of other movements – TGUs, swings, pull-ups, dips and box jumps. Most days I'll do between 4 and 5 movement variations. Any advice on how to balance the squatting and deadlifting so I don't burn out my back and legs? I'm planning to deadlift mon-fri, and add pressing / squatting / pull ups etc. on mon/wed/fri. Any pointers or experiences would be much appreciated.
