10 week 20 rep squat workout
- 04-25-2008, 12:45 PM
Well BP checks out fine 130/70, and I think I may have a sinus infection which could easily be the culprit. Today I am going to do the rest of my workout first, and then do squats and deads last. I know the point of this workout is to do squats first, but if I get a terrible headache from doing them again and have to workout the rest of the time with a splitting headache I'm gonna kill small cute animals....will update later...

So today I did everything else first, and squats last. It worked out well, and I also figured out why I have been getting such bad headaches when I lift. It's because my traps are so tight, the insertion where it attaches to my neck/bottom of head is so tight it is giving me a headache. I started to get a headache but rolled out my traps and stretched em' out a little bit and it subsided! Here were my lifts for today:
Bench: 135x10, 200x10, 205x10
Seated Rows: 140x15x15x15
Pull-overs: 35x20, 55x20
Shoulder Press w/ DB's: 45x12, 50x12, 55x12

Today went well, I have decided that today was my last time doing it however. My rotators simply cannot take benching 3x a week, and I can definitely tell my CNS is very taxed. I think that this would be a awesome workout to do while on cycle, and may do it when I do my next cycle. Here were my lifts for today:
Bench: 135x10, 205x10, 215x10
Shoulder Press: 50x12, 60x12, 65x8
Seated Rows: 150x15x15x13
didn't do the pull-overs, I need to be careful with my shoulders. Overall I like this workout a lot, but it is very hard on ones body.

I know it has been awhile since someone posted in this log - but I have to ask - besides endurance and cardiovascular, can a person gain size from doing this 20 rep workout?

The best my legs ever grew was around the time that I took up higher rep squats. I think my 1RM went from around 365 - 515. I think I was working at around 16 rep sets.
There is some research that says greater training volume in the legs yields better results (compared to the rest of the body).
I'm thinking about trying this kind of thing again someday!

I'm probably going to be running a 20 rep squat rountine in September. It's going to be brutal, but I love it.
