We are so excited! TODAY we start the 20 Rep Squat Program.
Here’s how it works- We will squat on Monday and Thursday. If you miss a day, you will make it up on another day as long as you squat twice a week. You must squat twice/week or this will not work. You start at 80# less than your 5 rep max. For example, if my 5 rep max squat is 300#, I will start at 220#. You will squat your starting weight 20 times. That is 20 reps without racking the bar. Take as long as you want. The bar can rest on your back, but weight cant be racked or it’s a failed attempt. If you fail at all throughout this cycle you use the same weight the next time. A fail is a fail. Do not fail and then attempt the remainder of your squats. You fail and you are done for the day. You can only go up in weight next time if you complete the 20 reps. Every squat day you will add 5#total to your last lift. In eight weeks, you will be back at your 5 rep weight, but you will be doing it 20 reps. WOAH.
