So for the past 4 years, I’ve squatted 3-4x a week pretty religiously.
I think I’m at a point where I won’t lose my squat strength and my technique is almost textbook perfect. I mean at 5’7 182lbs I can squat (high bar oly squat) 500x3. To be honest, as much as I love squats, I’m kind of sick of them lol.
The past 16 weeks I’ve been basically do one day heavy (5x3, 5x5, etc) and one day lighter (4x8, 5x10, etc).
For you guys that squat once a week, what does your setup look like? Have you noticed any drop off in squat strength doing it once a week? I was thinking of doing a 531 type program where I have a focus each day:
DAY 1 - Squat Focus
DAY 2 - OH Press & Chin-Up Focus
DAY 3 - Deadlift Focus
DAY 4 - Bench Press & Row Focus
I’ve never squat once a week and a part of me is just “worried”. I know it sounds so stupid, but I’ve worked so hard to get my squat to where it is, I’m just hesitant to do something different. Any advice/input would be appreciated!
What do your “squat days” look like?
