Sounds like you're just a pussy. Lots of pussies in this thread, honestly. Every third post is about some chronic "injury" or "pain". Beta genetics... ha.
Why not squats before deads? My programming has been deads right after squats in the same session or the day after for the past 2 months. I don't mean only regular deads though. I switch between stiff leg, conv, deficit, snatch grip and pause at knee deads.
When I first started dead lifting, I would squat before or after thinking I'm working similar muscle groups so why not?
Yes, you do.
The conventional deadlift just involves the back to a higher degree than the squat, while the sumo deadlift is more hips and less back than a conventional pull. If you're doing wide stance squats and sumo deadlifts I think the muscles worked are pretty much the same.
Thinking was that I wouldn't want to fatigue my low back the day before I rage with it. I guess it's moot though.
But if you don't want to fatigue you're lower back, wouldn't you rather squat before deads, than do deadlift before squats?
I mean, common sense to me is that deads (not sumo) fatigues the lower back more than squats. You could also do high bar squats instead of low bar and take even less load off the back in the squat.
