    I have done that in the past, yes it violates the 72hr rule, but for those of us with impaired recovery abilities, it does the trick. You still get to MAX out, and work on your speed, which, in the end are the keys to Westside.

    Save your CNS and your joints brother!

    hmmmmm, i really don't know alot so take what i say with a grain of salt....

    but what if you did something like this:

    lower
    gm\pull variation
    speed box squats for 6x2 or so (not as many sets as you would do on speed day because you are combining them both)
    asistance

    me upper


    lower asistance
    reverse hypers, abs, ect


    de upper


    just a thought, i would get some other advice first though

    Personally on on about 3 different weeks I combined my DE and ME squat/Dead day. I did this Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Weeks.. For instance one week I did my 8x3 speed squats and then went to a Max on SLDLs for the first time...

    Well After each of these weeks I came back the next week on my normal schedule and Blew away a ME day GM PR.. So I say once in a while the reduced volume is quite beneficial..

    I might have to do this until the summer though, when I can take a break from running
