How Many Times A Week Should You Train Deadlifts And Squats?

How Many Times A Week Should You Train Deadlifts And Squats?

  1. Are you looking to significantly improve your deadlifts and squats?
  2. How frequently are you practicing your deadlifts and squats? 
  3. Are you wondering if it’s possible to practice deadlifts and squats multiple days a week? 
  4. How many days a week can you practice your deadlifts and squats without overtraining?

The short answer here is that it’s possible for you to perform deadlifts and squats up to 4 to 6 days a week. As a concrete real world example the world’s strongest man and legendary strongman performer Paul Anderson has been documented squatting up to 5 days a week.

Granted he was the world’s strongest man and had progressed his training to that point while certainly figuring out what worked with his life schedule and his body in order to take on this type of volume.

Now even though Paul Anderson was the world’s strongest man and could squat up to 5 days a week this doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t be capable of such frequency yourself. It really just depends on your own personal goals and how much time and energy you’re willing and capable of devoting to the cause.
