    How often do you squat?

    Some of you maniacs hit that like multiple times each week. I personally deadlift 1x per week and squat 1x per week. This frequency seems to give my knees and joints adequate time to recover.

    I've been tempted to add another squat day into the mix but thus far have enjoyed my leg day pain only once per week and am making good gains doing so.

    So how often do you squat? (if you do not squat simply respond with "Bieber")

    Once a week, I like to switch it up to front squats once in a while.

    Re: How often do you squat?

    The sled and hack are now the mainstays of my training, but I squat just so POB can't talk too much much about me.

    Re: How often do you squat?

    It varies for me. If I'm running Sheiko I squat 2x per week. If I'm just doing my speed work and ME days then once per week. I've tried squatting 3 times per week but my hips turned to rubble after 3 weeks.

    Re: How often do you squat?

    I squat once a week.... like PFM I don't want all the "PowerLifters" talking all that 'pretty boy' trash about me.... that being said, my best quad work comes from hacks and leg presses so there you big, hairy, ugly, apes.

    You guys have managed to make us self-conscience .... wtf....

    Once a week.

    Along with hacks and presses. I might add a light squat day and see what happens

    Once a week for me now.

    When I was oly lifting, it was squats and deads 3 days a week. The other three were the olifts themselves. I feel you on the hips, mine went to absolute shit in about a month. They still have not forgiven me and I am two years past that phase.

    Oly lifts sure as hell take their toll. How are your shoulders?

    I only messed with them for two years, but my shoulders are awesome. All the snatch work bestowed upon me very well developed rear delts. My delts are light years ahead of the rest of my body.

    These old knees will only allow 1x/week if I'm lucky.

    Re: How often do you squat?

    I do legs twice a week but i only squat once a week. I work quads and hammies on different days. On deadlifts i do stiff deadlifts one week when working hams and the following week i do regular deads with back but never together in the same week.

    Re: How often do you squat?

    For years when I was building my wheels I did squat twice a week every week - Monday and Thursday.

    There is no doubt that 2X a week in the squat rack is one of the biggest training factors that contributed to the caliber of leg development that I posse. When I was on stage for the last time, there was only a little more than 1 inch difference between the size of my waist and the size of my legs.

    For the last 8 years, though, I have cut back to once a week squatting.
