6 Weeks To A Bigger Squat

6 Weeks To A Bigger Squat

Should be Monday /Thursday or Tuesday/ Friday
Use percentages, because they work. It is  based on a  percentage of your one rep max. So if you squat 500 and the workout calls for 80%, put 400 on the bar. This is a high volume program, proceed at your own risk. NO MISSED REPS. Take as much rest as needed to get all of your reps. Perfect form and push all the way through.You will be sore as hell, but you will get strong. Warm up, take baths, get a massage, whatever. Just complete the damn thing. What level of experience is needed to try this workout? 1-2 years probably, although no matter how long you have been training, if you have never worked this hard, you may be in for a big surprise at the level of commitment it takes to complete this and succeed. 6x2 reads 6 sets of 2 repetitions

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.
