Indigo Hypertrophy Program, BW Squats


#1

Just started the Indigo hypertrophy program. I'm not sure how to handle the bodyweight squats for MAX reps on the squat pattern days. Last week, I reached 30 and stopped not really feeling it. Are these sets intended to be around 100 reps, because I feel like that's where I'd be before true failure? I was thinking of adding dbs or maybe a 5 sec negative just to make the movement harder and ensure I'm failing much sooner. What are others experience with that particular superset?

Start by adding a slow negative and a 2 sec pause in the bottom. If you can reach 30 this way, add weight

Perfect. Thanks. No way I'm reaching 30 that way haha.
