7 weeks out, Day 4, AM squats, PM deadlifts

Squatted for the third day in a row today.  Since I was squatting in the morning, I was a little worried that the prior two days might leave my back too sore to squat but I actually felt okay.  The only thing that was sore was my adductors from the previous day.  I could feel things getting a little crispy so I don't think I could keep this up unless I modified the volume and intensity.  Still, it is easy to see how one could build a very consistent squat groove with a 'squat every day' program.

While I was able to cope with squatting three days in a row, I was curious to see how my evening heavy deadlift session would go.  Thankfully, everything worked pretty well and I was able to get in my expected workload.  The weights are still low relative to what I've lifted in the past but I'm getting the groove back and my back seems to be holding up well.
