Monday November 15th
Weightlifting

Today starts day 1 of the 20 rep squat program! This will repeat every Monday for the next 6 weeks. Here’s the details:

1.) Everyone must hit a 2-3 rep max back squat FIRST. This will help the weight feel lighter and give you the best chances of hitting your numbers for the day. It doesn’t matter if you hit an all time personal best here. Its main purpose is just to help you lift more for the 20 rep.

2.) As soon as you finish #1, you will rest a few minutes and get ready to hit your 20 rep max. YOU ONLY GET 1 SHOT AT IT and it’s only 1 set for the day. The weight you choose will most likely be between 40-60% of your 1 Rep max. The first time you ever try it, is always tough on what to pick for your weight, but I always suggest going on heavier side of your guess than the lighter side. Most peoples first day is usually too easy. This needs to have you literally shaking after 13-14 reps. And you should feel like you’re going to fail at reps 17-20.
3.) Every Monday, you will add 5-10lbs. to whatever you did the previous week. Even if it was the hardest thing you’ve ever done. You MUST add EVERY WEEK. If you failed the previous week, then you know you can opt to try again or add weight anyway if you were just having an off day.
