I squatted everyday for 3 months... learned quite alot about myself during this ....yes you can squat sore,yes you will get stronger ,yes it will suck ..i varied types of bars ( ssb,duffalo,etc ) and type of squat ( back,front,zercher,hatfield,etc) and used accommodating resistance (bands,chain,etc.) from day to day and used between 55 -85% of my TM (95% of 1rm) ..... after 3 months i retested my 1rm ....began 485 1rm --end 517 1rm....What's everyone's opinion on squat everyday there's a few lifters that made amazing lifts while doing this
Ive got bicep tendon issues too,so i stick to ssb and duffalo (buffalo) bar squats and front squats .... for an overload I've been doing hatfield squats with the ssb ...the only time i switch to regular barbell squats is the last 4-5 weeks before a meetI have been using the SSB because my biceps were getting stretched out, which I assume is tendonitis. But basically it hurt when I did any pressing movement in my biceps, which has been a problem before from squatting.
Any tips? I hadn't swatted much before that recently so maybe my flexibility was off. I squat the style Rippetoe teaches. I guess till then Im going to use the SSB every work out, besides days I dead.
You could probably squat every day if you kept the volume on the low side and play with the intensity a bit since the frequency is so high.
I personally prefer 2-3x/week depending on how I'm feeling. If I squat everyday, I wouldn't be able to handle much deadlifting.
it wasnt everyday that I remember bur I did SMOLOV and loved it but I feel I could of gotten same % of gains with much less days at gym doing squats only. Though It made squatting feel easier than benching by the end as I was just so used to squatting my technique got much better... Again everything works but nothing works forever!!![/QUOT]
Smolov is just cray cray. I've done it twice, but probably never again.
