Squat Programming


#1

What is your squat programming like?

I’m curious for a beginner WLer how would you program squats?

I do the full classical lifts on the same day twice a week.


#2

Brook Kubik offers a squat program for O-lifters… if i remember it correctly it is a O/H press movement, followed by a snatch pull, clean pull, or power clean, then 6x3 sets of squats front or back. This workout is done 3x per week.


#3

How many days do you have to train, what are your regular lifts.


#4

Right now I’m switching between lifting 3-4 days a week depending on the week.

i practice each classical lift twice a week. I squat 3x a week (bs 2x, FS 1x)

LIFTS -
Snatch - 115 (6x2)
C&J - 155 (6x2)
BS - 185 (5x5)
FS - 155 (5x5)
I’m 5’7, 170lbs

On one of back squat workouts do 6x2 at 70 to 80% max progression explosively , also change up reps on your front squats vary do different rep scheme 2,3,4,5 weekly.
