If you've completed my Squat Every Day Trainer, you know the grit, determination, and hardcore mentality it requires. This follow-up program is no different. In order to make it through, you're going to need the exact same no-pain-no-gain attitude and willingness to take your body to dark places you didn't think it could go.
The Squat Every Day Sequel challenges you in many of the same ways the original Squat Every Day Trainer did. But this program also includes some additional training to help you improve your skills in the clean, and can help you prepare for a powerlifting meet if you're ready for one.
Do these workouts for four weeks. At the end, you can start over and repeat it, or simply go back through the original Squat Every Day Trainer again. Both plans can be personalized to match your individual goals.
However you choose to continue, know that you can't quit being hardcore after just a few weeks; pushing yourself should be a lifelong endeavor. What you do in the gym carries over to all aspects of your life.
If you can get up in the morning and make yourself do what everyone else thinks is impossible, the rest of your day will be easy!
Squat Every Day Sequel Program Details
If you haven't already done the Squat Every Day Trainer, I suggest you start there. The original program provides all the details you need to know in order to be successful, such as nutrition, supplementation, and training guidance. Once you complete that program, you can move on to this one.
Every day will bring a new type of squat. If you've already completed the Squat Every Day Trainer, you should be familiar with each variation.
You don't need special equipment to perform this program. In reality, all you need to squat every day is a rack, a barbell, and some weights. However, if you'd like to continue making strength the most important aspect of your fitness or are preparing for a powerlifting meet, it would be wise to purchase some weightlifting shoes, a weightlifting belt, and some knee wraps or sleeves.
With the exception of Day 7, you'll squat as heavy as you can. That means you'll need to build up to a heavy single. I suggest you start by doing 20 reps with an empty bar. From there, do 10 reps with 95 pounds, then 5 reps with 135, then 3 reps with 185. If your back squat is over 365, take a few more triples. If the weight is starting to feel heavy, start taking singles.
The hypertrophy work you'll do in this trainer is unique and fun. I call this work "pump sets." To do pump sets, you'll perform variations of one exercise to failure. If you follow the workouts exactly as I've written them, your chest, shoulders, back, and arms will be massively pumped by the end of the workout.
