    I believe that it's far easier to get someone to safely Trap DL big numbers versus safely SQ big numbers. I've often thought about this with younger athletes, particularly in season. I know there could be more stress on the posterior chain, but wouldn't it be an easier way to go?
    If his back is that bad, I would stay away from all deadlift variatons.

    If the athlete is a beginner / low level (or maybe even intermediate at certain phases) it appears to me that using an upper / lower split may be the most appropriate so you could have

    Day 1 Accel / speed, med ball, plyos, lower (squats and supplementary)
    Day 2 am Upper weights (bench and supplementary) pm tempo
    Day 3 Accel / SE, med ball, plyos, (squats and supplementary)
    Day 4 am Upper weights (incline bench or military press and supplementary) pm tempo
    Day 5 Accel / speed, med ball, plyos, lower (squats and supplementary)
    Day 6 am Upper weights (bench and supplementary) pm tempo
    Day 7 Rest

    Adjust weights volume / intensity as required

    Or
    Day 1 Accel / speed, med ball, plyos, lower (squats and supplementary)
    Day 2 am Upper weights (bench and supplementary) pm tempo
    Day 3 Accel / SE, med ball, plyos
    Day 4 Rest
    Day 5 Accel / speed, med ball, plyos, lower (squats and supplementary)
    Day 6 am Upper weights (bench and supplementary) pm tempo
    Day 7 Rest


    CF talks about using OLís in a cold weather, outdoor situations to Ďtop upí the CNS but I would think possibly a better option was to increase the volume of med ball and plyos and then reduce those later on, of course you need to be aware of injury but perhaps a better option than Olís.

    Thoughts?
