20 Rep Squats with 462

by Kilo on November 21, 2011

For those of you who have tried a set of 20 rep squats, have you ever tried it with 462? Monstrous work here.

And now it occur to me that I want some bumper plates, apropos of nothing.

Have any of you read the book Super Squats?

My legs are sore just watching that…wow.

Patrick, what was the most you ever did 20 reps with? I know you told me some awful story about you and high-rep box squats once.

I did a 20 rep with 540 on box squat once. Even in my callow youth, I would never have dared scheduling such an event to happen. It was some sort of weird aberration, as I was going for 10, and people gathered around, and adrenalin kicked in.

I’ve actually never done 20s on standard squat, but a friend of mine swears by them. I aspire to get the courage to do Super Squats one day, but that day has not yet dawned.

Tough SOB. I have a copy of Super Squats. Certainly is a classic. I’ve never done the program proper, but did a lot of higher rep stuff when I was trying to gain weight.
