do i need to SLDL if deadlifting and squatting?

Hi

Ive been doing frankies routine for a while now and would like to know if i really need to SLDL as im alrady deadlifing and squatting. I find conventional deadlifts hit my hamstrings alot and i get doms in them. Im also concerned that doing SLDL on leg day as well as deadlift on pull day means im overtraining my lower back in particular, as it never really has time to recover and can still feel tweaky. Also my lower back gets worked to a degree when overhead pressing.

what do you reckon guys and girls?

    Id say yes but im not as clued up as Frankie. The hamstrings do get worked through the other 2 but since ive been doing sldls the legs have got loads thicker and the hamstrings look far more powerfull. Goodmornings also hit my hams hard

    Hmmm tricky one, if like you say BYF1 you feel your lowerback doesnt fully recover then maybe you should skip the stiffies. Alternatively I suppose you could swap you deadlift for a rack pull or something, maybe a power shrug?

    I'm pretty sure I injured my lower back from simply overtraining it, oly lifts one day, barbell rows the next and then deads the final day. (not on consecutive days by the way)

    If you have your form right it should be ok, although you might have an oddly shaped spine genetically which puts your lower back under stress....just don't train it if it hurts in a non-muscular way I'd say.

    or his lower back could just need a longer recovery time

    im on my feet all day at work too, walking up to 5miles and wear a rucksack for 7 hours a day!!

    I think this works my back quite a bit too, and my back can often feel a little tense in the evening.

    I sometimes need 3 days to recover from deadlifts, even with fairly good form. I do squats and stif legged on the same day then conventional deads about 4 days later.
