I tried this today. It was a leg day. I’ll also say that I train for bodybuilding (i.e. hypertrophy), so take that for what it’s worth.
Usually, my Sunday leg days go squat, hack squat, ham curl, leg press, then SLDL.
My plan was to do my normal day but do the 1x20 at the end of squat, then do a bit lower volume with the subsequent exercises to compensate.
I underestimated how much 315x20 would smoke me (yes, I’m not super-strong). I was physically gassed, of course, but I underestimated how psychologically demanding it would be. I think the rest of my planned sets really suffered.
It might be something I do once per month or two. But regularly? I just feel like my overall strength development would suffer. For the OP’s plan, doing that twice a week would be killer.[/quote]
315*20 is pretty strong dude. whats your best for a single out of curiosity?[/quote]
Thanks, I guess (unless being facetious).
The first program I used for the first two years or so of lifting was Big Beyond Belief, which involved weekly 13-15 rep days and never went below 8 reps. So I’m more prepared for a good 20 rep squat v. a 1 rep. That said, the heaviest I’ve ever gone is 410, which I did today. It was pretty smooth, so I’m not sure what I’m good for.
But let’s just say 410.
