Best Program, Squatting 2 Days a Week?


Looking for a program that only involes squatting twice a week at most any suggestions?




Have you tried the conjugate method? One day per week of a max effort squat variation and one day per week of varying squats for speed? Read up on Westside Barbell and Louie Simmons if this sounds interesting to you. 5/3/1 is a tried and true program but Westside is more fun in my experience, from both a sheer lifting standpoint as well as experimenting with my own programming.

No love for the overhead press?


Overhead pressing is for when you are hung over or too sore to bench.
