Hey all. Just had a random thought tonight to get some insight from some great squatters on here, I really need some help. Ive posted videos of my squats on here and had some pretty strong powerlifters critique my form on both low and high bar and they said its pretty darn decent. I followed the Cory Gregory Squat Everyday 2.0 program to the TEEE and heres how it went.
PROS: Low bar squat 1RM went from 325 to 365 over the period of a 6 week cycle
High bar 1RM went from 315 to 335
Front squat 1RM went from 275 to 305
Core strength felt much stronger after cycle.
CONS: Bench press stayed about the same even though I did more bench frequency
Lack of OH press made me feel weaker in the shoulder department
Lack of assistance movements
So today after doing the program for the 6 weeks and a few rest days, I went in and did a set of 8x6 at 225 squat and was plain shocked at how hard it was to DO MORE REPS.
The weight didnt feel heavy, however my muscle endurance just felt plain pathetic.
My major question is this, what do you all find to be your key set/rep scheme and what do you recommend for someone who has an overall strong deadlift and bench, but lagging squat?
Hope to hear from someone.
