Speed Skater Squats -
at least 7 sets.......bodyweight x 10 for a ton, then with 80 pounds for a fuck ton sets of 10
High Bar Pause Squats -
strip set - 315x5 -> 225x5 paused
Calf Stairs - whole set of basement stairs for a set of 10 single leg on each step
Notes - The high bar pause squats don't hurt really sooooo, I am going to be doing this however I can't imagine I will go heavier than 365. I also like fatiguing the quads before I get started so the pause squats are harder.
Pretty happy to find a winning combination for squats right now.
Paul what do you recommend for someone trying to get bigger stronger legs without being able to squat/Deadlift?ReplyDelete
Well the deadlift isn't really a leg builder.Delete
Why can't you do squats?
cant squat because i train in my garage and i currently dont have a rack. had a mishap with my attempt to squat of a stack of bins. im looking to getting a rack but o dont have the space/money at the moment. i have a barbell, dumbbell handles, and lots of weight.ReplyDelete
Barbell hack squats, where you put the bar behind you, and do a deadlift. Try those. They can be awkward.Delete
Also 1 legged squats holding heavy db's.
Tons of lunges.
You can also do high rep squats with whatever you can clean onto your shoulders.
Lots of options.
Hey Paul, quick question:ReplyDelete
Speed Skater Squats, any reason you do these rather than Bulgarian Splitsquats (If I'm understanding the videos correctly, SSS is basically a one-and-half rep BSS)? Just for variety?
I think they are the same actually. Speed skater squats to me are nothing more than elevated 1 legged squats.Delete
Oh, okay. That's just what I call a BSS; didn't know the other so I just saw what Joe DeFranco teaches. Looked odd.Delete
Will defo look into this since I'm recovering from a Patellar tendinitis.ReplyDelete
I had a question paul, I've been enjoying the old big15 template for a while. What do you think about adding the 50% sets to the original template?
Should be fine. That's what is going to happen in the new big-15.Delete
