    So who,s done 20 rep squats

    Just started the 20 rep squats power programme on monday. Everything went good not to taxing though i am expecting that to change.

    Program is

    Exercise Sets Reps
    Power Cleans 5 3
    Squat 1 20
    Overhead Press 2-3 12
    Chin-ups 2 do until failure
    Dips 2 10
    Conventional Deadlifts 1 15

    It is done on M W F running for 6 weeks only thing i,m going to change is
    Bench for overheads and RDLS FOR DEADS on alternating workouts. Also started drinking whole milk about 2 litres a day.
    So if anybody has done this workout whats to expect such as how brutal are they, how much size can be gained thanks in advance.

    Seriouspowerlifting.com its an old school program introduced by john mcCallum
    in 1968 you add 5 or 10 lbs to the squat every workout. Mark rippetoe speaks highly of it too apparently it separates the men from the boys,find out soon enough.

    I've routinely done sets of 20 in squats with heavy weight. Great to throw in high reps every now and then to shock the muscle.

    Yeah Marcus I've doing 5/3/1 for a while and 5x5 before so be interested in
    what kind of carry through there is when i go back to that.
    I,m assuming the claims of up to 30lbs gained are aimed at novice although
    I dont class myself as novice i,m certainly not elite so it will be good to see what kind of gains i can make from this.

    I usually incorporate 20 squats into a circuit I do.
    20 reps bench, 20 reps squats, 20 clean n press. no rest inbetween exercises.
    rest 2 min and go for 3-4 rounds.. saw DLB do it and I figured I would try it, it was killer
