Discovered a technique a couple weeks back that seems to work pretty well, 50 reps with your body weight on the bar, example if you weigh 75kg, you do 75kg squats for 50 reps in the least time possible so no breaks, no sets, one huge set. My legs feel like imploding now :P

To be honest I didn't smash it as much as I did last week, as I feared not being able to walk again, an I might be going climbing tonight

Great idea isn't it? Doing a mega workout like that is great I find to mix things up so the muscles stay confused and annihilate that particular bodypart in the process, but you probably should only do it once per month if not less, and give yourself extra recovery time than normal not to lead to over-training.

My favourite when it comes to marathon squat workouts is to do:
My standard workset, then drop the weight by 10-15kg, do 3x8 or something until my form starts to suffer, the drop by 10kg, and repeat until my form suffers, and then keep dropping the weight down along when my form starts to suffer.

It normally amounts to something like:
105kg 3x5 (workset)
90kg 3x6
80kg 3x7
70kg 3x8
60kg 3x10
40kg 3x12

You'd be amazed how hard squatting something as low as 40kg can be after all those squats. Needless to say, walking for the week afterwards - forget about it!!

Hey guys, I saw this website posted on reddit today and thought I would bring it to your attention (If you haven't seen it already). I've been reading through it and it's full of some really excellent information.

Enjoy!

Well the cold is out so my boss has allowed me to bring bench/weights/bars to work. So much better. Had done chest/tri's by 10am this morning.

Doing HIIT every other day again too so hopefully get a bit leaner, going to change meals shortly too.
