  6. I did a program about half a year ago or so where I did 20rep squats, 15rep deads, and 10rep bench. I made tremendous gains but you have to basically buy a costco and get tons of rest. If your interested i did a log, just search for it through my name. I listed everything.

  7. 365 for 10 is great. i usually get that for 8-9. I go ass to grass, alot of guys dont. The 20 rep program is wicked oldschool, alot of people say it is for newbs because it puts mass on all over quick, however, when done after you are experienced, the benefits are huge. you start the routine, at WHATEVER your ten rep max is for 20. so if you get 315 for 10, you start there and add five pound every other day. in six weeks that is 90 lbs, and you should be doing your 3-5 rep max, for reps of 10. now you se how that would get you 30 in thighs?

  8. would doing 20 reps 185 pounds be worth it? or should i up it to 205?
    (keep in mind im only 14 )

    Its NOT about the weight, it is the amount of effort put forth.. It is about using a weight that is HEAVY for YOU, and hard as hell. A weight where by 10 you are asking your self how the **** you can go on, and still grinding out 20(or more). If that is 185, so be it.

    Exactly. I am currently running this, andthe horrors are real. It is all about the weight that is heavy for you. If your ten rep max is 185, start there. if its 205, start there. its all about mentally preparing yourself, you ar eabout to attempt double reps, of something you bareley get ten of. Make sure your form is spot fukcin on as well.
