PHAT training Deadlift and Squat?

  1. PHAT training Deadlift and Squat?


    Have been doing a modified PPL for a while now and am putting together a PHAT type program to switch to.

    How do people fit Squats and Deadlifts into this program if at all for the power workouts? I know I canít handle back to back squat and deadlift days if Iím going heavy.

    I was thinking of using rack pulls as my main power back move on the Monday and then squat on Tuesday, would this be a good work around? The only other way I can see is to rotate Squats and Deadlifts every 4 weeks and have them as my main lower body power move.


  2. The split doesn't lend itself well to training all the powerlifts equally. If you want to do that then I'd recommend a PPL like you've been doing

    Squat + legs
    Bench + chest / shoulders
    Overhead Press + Arms
    Deadlift + back

    If you really want to do the PHAT split then you can do deadlifts instead of pendlay rows

  3. Do you think using trap bar deadlifts instead of squats would be a good work around? That way I get to deadlift instead of squat but hit the quads a lot harderz

    No I would do deadlifts instead of pendlay rows. Trap bar deadlifts don't really hit the quads more than regular deadlifts. To train the quads you need to be hitting them from the stretched position

    Lunges? That's the best way to hit mine. But lots of people say " that's just hitting the hip flexers" if I do 8 sets of 20 lunges with 30lb dumbels....I'm crippled for a day. Not my flexers, my butt cheeks.

  6. Who says lunges significantly place any load on the hip flexors? You are extending from a flexed position at both the knee and hip joints, that aint gonna be done with the hip flexors.

    I never get quite the same glute doms from anything else like high rep lunges. Finished a session yesterday with a set of 100 (50 each side) using just the bar (I wasn’t feeling it that session) - I’m comtemplating standing up to sh1t today

    I agree. I've heard different

    Yeah lunges / split squats are incredible but I definitely wouldn't remove squats or deadlifts to do them
