    Hey,
    My 1RM for deadlift is 617 and 518 for squat. So my first week of the program looks like this:
    401lbs 3 x 12 deadlift
    335lbs 3 x 12 squat
    I just did the pull workout & deadlifts with 401lbs and the 3 sets of 12 reps. I literally almost killed me. The combination of weight and high rep is grueling. It’s Thursday and I’m still sore AF and can’t imagine doing the lower day with 335 x 12 squat tomorrow.
    How would you address this? I’m thinking about alternating weeks. 1 week heavy DL (using the program % & reps) and speed squats and the next week speed DL and heavy-ish squat (programs % and reps). Thank you in advance for your help and advice.

    Thank you Joe! Really appreciate you taking the time and helping.
    I’m into the second week and really my lower back is the biggest issue. In the past, when I did powerlifting style training I combined squat and deadlift on the same day and got away with it or my lower back did when it got 1 week of rest practically.
    I really like the program and would like to finish it as it was written. What would you do if you had my problems?
