Best Program, Squatting 2 Days a Week?


#1

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


#2

5/3/1


#3

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.


#4

Monday Bench
Tuesday Squat
Wednesday Bench
Thursday Deadlift
Friday Bench
Saturday Squat
Sunday Off


#5

No love for the overhead press?


#6

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