    20 rep squats

    Is anyone familiar with the twenty rep squats program?

    I want to do it; it looks short, and brutal! It is acknowledged as a good mass-gainer, and eating the 'PB way', most of those gains should be lean mass!

    I would recommend a surplus of calories for your BW, as in 1000 per day, especially on a squat day. Absolutely brutal, make sure you are doing the breathing pullovers right after. No point in nearly killing yourself and then undereating.

    I'm sure it works great, but let's face it, it's going to take quite a bit of work to get to the point where you can do that amount of weight and reps without killing yourself. How much do you squat right now?

    I'm not going to try doing 210kg; I'm going to aim to perform my 10 rep max, twice.

    I did 15-12-9 (36) squats at 80kg last week, with the same number pull-ups in between as part of conditioning exercise in 5:41. So for a hard set of twenty squats I'm thinking 100kg.

    That is brutal. Notice how his form changes at about rep 12. You can see he starts incorporating more back into it as he fatigues. Still, his overall form is pretty impressive throughout.

    You're doing it barefoot or with flat heels, right? You don't want any lift in the heels.

    He lost form on number seven. Looks like quite the cns taxer.

    if you're taking your 10rm and doing it 20 times, it's not your 10rm
