If you want a quick start for your squat, try the Russian squat routine. The first one I ever did was in Fred Hatfield's book, Power. It has tons of volume, and for a beginner or intermediate lifter, it does wonders because it "greases the groove" as Pavel would say. I believe that the original had the lifter squatting 3x a week. Don't be afraid to just squat 2x or 1x a week if you aren't recovering.

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
