Twenty Rep Squat Routine!

Do you walk around falling over because your upper body is disproportionate to your lower body? If so give you legs some focus and try this routine for 3-4 weeks and bring them up to scratch.

Are your legs lagging? Do you walk around falling over because your upper body is disproportionate to your lower body? If so give you legs some focus and try this routine for 3-4 weeks and bring them up to scratch.

I first saw the 20 rep squat routine in an issue of Ironman magazine and quickly dismissed it as something I didn't want to try. However after sometime I did give it a try and I was amazed with the results. I hate leg training for three reasons.

Barbell Squat

Firstly I have a dodgy lower back so squats hurt quite a bit.

Secondly I have really strong and powerful legs. Of all my body parts my legs are obviously where my genetic gifts lie.

Finally after you slave away trough pain and many sets I always felt that legs don't give you the same satisfaction as bi's, tri's or chest. That was until I tried the 20 rep squat routine.

The 20 Rep Squat Routine

Monday, Wednesday & Friday

The exercises are self explanatory apart from the squats. Here is how to do it:

  • Pick a weight that you would usually do 12 reps with but go for 20 and don't stop short.
  • This routine is sometime called breathing squats because at the top you will need a good 5 deep breathes just to keep going.
  • Once you reach 20, and you will, grab a dumbbell and do 20 reps of pullovers in a slow controlled manner inhaling on the negative and exhaling on the positive. This will help your recovery.

Conclusion

Give this routine a go for a few weeks and the growth in your legs will astound you. A good tip is to drop cardio for this period as it works your legs too much and they won't grow.
