I am interested in what sort of programming you would use for squatting more frequently (ie. 4-6 days/week. I enjoy a lower volume/high frequency approach and have seen good progress for lower body strength using this
I would like some advice on programming to build up my squat (esp. front squat) (would I get good results from just sticking to sets of 4-6?, would doing higher reps benefit my 1RM or 5RM?) it would be great to hear from anybody who has had results from this
I have found the limiting factor to be joint strength rather than muscular, and it seems to get worse when taking time off(eg. I might squat heavy for 3 days in a row fine, but as soon as I take a day off, my knees are shot). Is there anything (exercises, treatments etc) that can help with my knee joints, or will they simply get used to it?
I am a relative beginner- my front squat is 105kgx5. Don’t really do back squats so much atm as they seem to take longer to recover from, and usually for higher reps. I have done 110kgx20, but I would not be able to do this now. I also do (heavy-ish) power cleans & snatch grip DL, which would, I guess, impact on squatting recovery
I think my form is pretty good - people say I go too low, and my knees do come over my toes, but as far as i can see any oly lifter does this.
I have tried to minimise bounce, but I might still use it at near-max weights
I can post up a form video next time I go to the gym if it is of any use
