[quote=“LankyLefty”]pretty good. It’s better than most. Doing the same exercises every lower and upper body workout may get repetitive, but it’s fine if you want to keep it simple. Keep this phase in the 4-6 week range. You’ll want to vary it up after that. There’s some possibility you have trouble on the lower body workout with squats and trap deads back to back. If so, reduce the volume of one of the lifts every other workout. So 3-4 sets of Trap Deads 2-3 sets of Squats one workout and 3-4 sets squats 2-3 sets trap deads the next. You might have to play it by ear a little bit.
You’re going to get stronger though. Just remember to eat plenty, get that post workout nutrition and lift like a frickin MANIMAL![/quote]
I would combine heavier deadlifts on one leg day with sets no heavier than 50%-70% of my 1RM squat on the same day. For this day, on light squats I would work on trying to keep the bar moving at a constant speed and really look at the range of motion and depth (maybe do box squats). On the other day I would do just the opposite - deadlifts would be my light lift and squats would be my heavier lift. On any light day it would be form & power driven. Trap Bar deadlifts are great for form work & I would almost suggest box squats for learning proper depth and technique.
Why are you doing chin-ups to failure?
Also what about flexibility/mobilization work?
