Never Skip A Leg Day – Reaching Your Max Daily Squat

Squats are all about cumulative volume. The more frequently you do them, the stronger your legs will become. It is that simple. However, beware of the fact that this method requires about 4 times more squats than you are used to.

Reaching your daily squatting maximum may sound daunting and hard, but it does have its benefits.

Add the Max Squat to the Routine

If your routine looks something like this: 4 to 5 workouts per week in an isolation split format (back, chest, leg, shoulder, and arm day), this badass method will be an excellent addition to your program.

First you will need to find your max squat weight. Let’s say it is around 400lbs.

Then you will try and reach it via 10 different series, starting from 5 reps at 120lbs, and finishing with 1 rep at 400lbs (or near) while gradually adding more weight in between.

These numbers, of course, vary from person to person, but you catch the drift. And one important thing – make sure you call it a day once you feel this is too much for you. Back up a bit, and then start over with less weight.

Remember, it’s about low volume.
