hi guys, I was wondering (especially those, who squat every ,or, almost every day), do you ever change your squat workouts? I mean, lets say, you max out on squats every day throughout the year, do any of you have periods where you'lle do higher rep work for some time, a month or two for examle..
I am squatting every day for nearly 4 moths now, but was thinking to ,maybe, break the "monotonic pattern" and go for ,lets say, breathing squats (20 reps). Obviously, in this scenario, I would squat 2 times a week at max, + snatch and clean and jerk. I know that my 1 rep max will increse very little, maybe 5kg or so, but thats not the goal.
The goal is to throw in something different, so that when i finish the cycle, it would sort of initiate growth on my 1 rep max training when i come back to it. You know, when you give your body something it hasn't done for a while, it is prone to getting good gains in the beginning. I did it some time ago.
My 1 rep max was 165kg, I started breathing squats with 140 kg for 5 reps. In about two months I was doing 16 reps with 140. when I came back to 1 rep max, it went up only by 5kg (170). But in the following two weeks I managed to go up to 185kg. That's the effect I want to achieve again. Thanks for any input...
