Which Program For More Growth?

Barbell Sqauts in this example…

95x15
115x12
135x10
155x8
175x6
195x3

or

10 sets of 3 of 195

If you are not a bigginer, second option without a doubt.

Rolo.

definitely 10x3 after a good warmup

Thanks…

One more question…

Even thought the poundage?s lifted are greater in the first option 7,000 vs. 5,800 in option 2?

You also have to factor how long it takes you to complete each workout. Rest between sets is a factor.

You might be moving more pounds/minute with the 10x3.

If you’re doing both in the same amount of time, I’d go with the first one. You’ll have done more work.

Although I think that someone who can do the first workout can probably do 10x3 with a heavier weight than 195.
