Squat Frequency


#1

How often do you guys squat/ week?


#2

Back once front every day


#3

Back squat 3 times a week - front squat once, used more as an accessory exercise


#4

Depends on the weakness. Usually 4x a week, 2x back and 2x front…or more. If one is more of a weakness than another, that changes.


#5

for most of the athletes that I coach I recommend 3 squat sessions a week. But I am experimenting with 2 squat sessions, we will see how it goes.


#6

Thanks for all the replies guys


#7

Wait? is this really pendlay? If it is, more info would be appreciated. All back squat or alternating or back and front as one session?


#8

yes this is glenn pendlay. my normal routine that I have used for all the lifters I have had over that last 20 years is usually back squatting twice per week and front squatting once. however recently i have been experimenting with back squatting and front squatting together in one workout.


#9

I for one would love to hear what a dual squat session and programming looks like if you’re offering.


#10

Don’t wanna be a dick or anything but is there way of verifying your identity?


#11

You shouldn’t need to. Glenn seems to be a fan of forum discussion on the sport.

No disrespect Glenn, welcome to T-nation. We need some action here.


#12

As in The Texas Method?


#13

He also popped up the day a Pendlay article was posted, so it makes sense.


#14

Does me saying “yes, it’s him” count for anything? Because, yes, it’s him.


#15

Oops. Sorry for seeming like an ass, nice to see you on T Nation Coach Pendlay.


#16

Other than you can’t just say “yes, it’s him”, yes, that counts. :wink:


#17

Are you and John planning on any more pod cast coach? And how’s the rowing going


#18

i am not sure i can prove who i am. i have had this log in on this forum for years. i have not posted for a LONG time, but with my new article out on


#19

no, jon has backed out of every single seminar we planned together, indluding ones several years ago. so I am just done trying to work with him.


#20

Glad to see you back here coach. You’ve been gone a LONG time!
