For my summer lifting program I’m using the Westside Template (3 days with one flotaing day). What I wanted some input on was whether or not I should use lower body max effort exercises (i.e. various deadlifts, differnet squats) or use a cycle/wave to train just my squat (based off prilepin’s chart). My reasoning is that we don’t test the deadlift, and I fear that if I go that long without doing any type of regular squats than I won’t be ready to test in for camp come August.
Ok, I just thought of something else that I may be able to do. Could I possibly just use varations of the squat for all of my ME lift? Something like this: Front Squats, Box Squats, Zerchers (would this be any good for football players?), Free Squats, Manta Ray Box Squats,
