Starting a six week 20 Rep squat program this upcoming weekend with a friend and am starting to get psyched. I’ve only been training for less than a year, most of which in very newbie fashion–no legs, bench, curls, etc.
Started on a Madcow 5x5 a few months back to incorporate some leg work and ended up getting addicted to squats. Nothing quite like the pump I feel everyday in my lower half. Came across this 20 rep squat program and thought I’d give it a try so I don’t want to continue to have the embarrassing equal squat to bench numbers. Here are my stats:
32 years old
6’2" 215 lbs, unsure of bf%
Standing Military: 165
Bent over Row 90deg: 175
Obviously, I want to focus on the squats and increasing my strength there, but also want to keep it interesting on the other lifts as well so I don’t get bored. Looking for suggestions. Also, not sure if I should go 3 squat days a week or just two. I’m considering a squat-deadlift(not 20 rep)-squat workout week. Probably will start with 160lbs for 20 and increase 5 lbs each workout.
Any stories or suggestions for someone with my stats/experience level would be awesome. Time to put some base on this frame.
