Ultimate Squat Routine

Below is an article that I wrote about a year ago. It’s not your normal squat program at all! This thing is for Olympic weightlifters and powerlifters alike. If you are having trouble getting that squat up, here is your plan.

Ultimate Squat Cycle

20141117-180404-65044342.jpg

To date I have written about two different squat cycles: the Eze Front Squat Program, and the Chain Squat Routine. Each time that I published those articles several people asked me what to do on the other days, so here is a full squat routine. This would be a great routine for someone who needs a big boost in general strength, or for a powerlifter trying to get yoked.

I have combined three of the best routines that I have used to formulate what I believe to be the best squat routine on record. I have combined the Eze Front Squat Routine, The Max Effort Chain Squat, and the LSU Rep Max Routine. This work out will give you hypertrophy, absolute strength, and stabilization. It’s basically everything Jacked!!!!

Monday Back Squat Rep Max Routine

Week 1 10RM, then -5 & -10% for 10
Week 2 10RM, then -5 & -10% for 10
Week 3 10 RM, then -5 & -10% for 10
Week 4 -10% of Best 10RM for 2 sets of 10
Week 5 5RM, then -5 & -10% for 5
Week 6 5 RM, then -5 & -10% for 5
Week 7 5 RM, then -5 & -10% for 5
Week 8 -10% o of Best 5RM for 3 set of 5
Week 9 3RM, then -5 & -10% for 3
Week 10 3RM, then -5 & -10% for 3
Week 11 3RM, then -5 & -10% for 3
Week 12 -20% of Best 3RM, for 3×3
