I usually squat once a week, heavy. Been trying for a volume/dynamic day here lately too. Seems like it's helping some. On a whim, I've squatted 3 days in a row now (max effort singles friday, volume high box sat, and some 80-7% free work today). Just going on feel really. It seems like the more often I squat, the less sore it makes me and the more competent I become. Never played any sports in highschool but I remember the football players squatting 3x / wk and many of them becoming competent squatters (most naturally) in just a couple years. I would expect as a lifter becomes more advanced this method would become obsolete (or too dangerous), but for someone who has only hoisted 425 out of the hole here I'd really like to see 5 plates a side sooner rather than later.
So how many times a week do you usually get under the bar (front, back, boxes of varying heights, etc)?
