BBB, Squats Every Workout?


I am wanting to and feel that it is now a good plan to switch to a split routine moving away from the full body organizations I have been running for so long.

I think BBB is a good fit for me. I will use one of the templates from your beyond book.

here is my question though…

Although I think moving to a less taxing split routine is the right move for my training I am not willing to compromise on the principle of squatting every time i workout. This principle is something I have founded my training and life around and I believe it to be one of, if not, the most important part of training to me for a multitude of reasons.

So, rather than butcher one of your programs I was wondering if you could give me some direction on how to structure a program that incorporates the BBB idea but that would allow me to squat everyday. What are your thoughts?


I would have to develop a five cycle plan to do this - and no way I would ever advise someone to do BBB for all five cycles. Just nothing I would ever do.

Training is much more than squatting.



What then, would be a better plan of action? If the goal was to focus a little more on physique, reduce the stress that a full body template produces, (but still with the mindset of making progress on the main lifts) and obviously squatting every workout.


I wrote a template a year or so ago called “bodybuild the upper/athlete the lower” - it doesn’t have squatting every day but life is sometimes unfair, so deal with it. it’s good shit, but you have to be willing to actually do the athlete work. I assume being fucking awesome is a goal?

It’s on my forum.

If you don’t want to do that, I’ve written probably 100 different templates to choose from in the last year or so. I’d check those out.
