No I don’t think so. I do think it’s easier for them to ramp into it quickly though. I think you can squat daily in some capacity just fine without PEDs. Heavy daily squatting will require lots of time easing into it though IMO, since it is worlds different that even squatting heavy 3-4x a week[/quote]
Aragorn is right on the money. It will take your body some time to get used to it. I tried squatting heavy daily for a couple weeks and just regressed and quit. My friend who is also a powerlifter told me about his experience with it though. He said it took a few weeks before he actually started making any progress on it, but after that he made the best gains on his squat in his entire life.[/quote]
I would venture to say that past physical activity and training history probably play a huuge role in how long it takes your body to “get used to it.” As I said, I dove right in with no break in period and I was just fine. I believe Ed is saying he did the same thing (correct me if I’m wrong). However, I have been highly physically active on a near daily basis my entire life anyway, and leading up to daily squatting I had built my training capacity up over several years and was training the Olympic lifts everyday.
Yes, daily max squatting is a different animal, but it’s possible that my body wasn’t as shocked by it as say, somebody whose idea of hard training is 1 hour a day 3x a week.
