Hey y’all. I am currently running Stronglifts 5x5, which has me squatting heavy 3x/week. I want to squat more often, though. I was thinking that two extra days a week, I could work up to a 1 rep max. I did that today (after squatting 5x5 yesterday) and it didn’t seem to tax me too badly.
I ice and stretch daily. On these 2 extra days, I also do pull-ups, core, and a heavy sled push (I will probably stop doing the sled push). Do you think this is a good idea?
I won’t overtrain. I used to spend those 2 extra days doing Olympic work, and I want to replace that with squat 1 rep maxes. My body is adapted to training legs 5 days/week.
Would this be beneficial or pointless? Another option I was thinking of was front squatting both days with moderate weight.
