I suppose I should clarify.
I do deads/squats (variations) twice a week.
Workout #1- Deads/Front Squats
Workouts #2- Squats/RDLs
I definitely wouldn't have done this in my first few years of training but I go pretty heavy on all of it now and have no problems. I've really incorporated more posterior chain work this past year and it's paying off in both squats/dead numbers while my lower back feels much stronger than in the past.
I used to do exactly what Silock is saying by never squatting or deadlifting on the same day.
You could always focusing on building your endurance across sets with each lift individually during the week and adding in some different accessory work that is less taxing. If you aren't having two legs days a week, you should be
and that would solve your problem.
