    I see lifters making excuses all the time and a lot of the time its just a weak mind that holds them back. They just need to man up and do the job and stop whining. That's what I tell them lol

    Squatting isnt easy.... its not supposed to be.

    You are not going to make much progress on your squat training inconsistently AND doing heaps of running/rubgy. Pretty simple, if you want a big squat, train squat frequently, consistently and heavy. Decide what your priorities are and make it happen no excuses.

    While still playing regular comp soccer/futsal my squat pretty much took a year to progress from 100 to 110 x 5 x 5, and then for the next year did not progress...At that point I decided what was more important to me.

    With diet and sleep nailed there's no reason why you can't build up to squatting fairly heavy 3x a week. I just started Bulgarian Method programming and will work up to squatting 4 x per week minimum.

    Work with different rep ranges instead of doing 10's all the time.

    One session you might do 95kg 5x5.

    Next session you might do 70kg 2x20.

    Next session you might do 90kg 3x10.

    As mentioned above you should be trying to add either weight or reps every session. So if you do 90kg 3x8 then next session you should either do 92.5kg 3x8 or 90kg 3x10.

    Progressive Overload is key. You dont want to do the same thing over and over again.

    Also try doing other lifts that will assist you in squatting. Front Squats, Lunges, Box Squats etc.

    Squats are something you have to keep on pushing yourself on to progress.

    Hope this helps.

    Basically I feel like I'm not squatting enough. I'm following the beginner strength programme as best I can (not really good at consistent frequency of training, I'll have a great week the. Go on day shift and get 1 session in on top of rugby training) and I do a fair amount of cardio with rugby.

    So whilst I except that I'm far from perfect in terms of achieving good progression I still think my squat is weak.

    I manage my 3x10 work sets at 80kg all the time. Some days I can do 2 of those sets at 90kg.

    As a reference my bench sets (3x8) are achieved fairly comfortably at 70kg and my dead lift sets are currently 115kg.

    I'm making good traceable progression on all lifts except the squat.

    Any thoughts or ideas?

    Or am I way over thinking things?
    Please check this high frequency yet low volume to squatting here and see if you can follow solidly for only 3 weeks!

    Here it is: Fadi’s corner… let’s have some fun!

    Please fast forward to page #39 and reply #385 to see what I'm referring to above.

    All the best.

    PS: I've decided to copy paste it for you here below:

    Meso#1.....Tues............... Wed............Thurs............Fri..............S at...............Sun.......

    Week 1......5x2 80%.........5x3 80%..... 5x2 80%...... 5x4 80%....5x2 80%..... 5x5 80%

    Week 2..... 5x2 80%......... 6x5 80%..... 5x2 80%...... 5x5 85%... 5x2 80%..... 5x3 90%

    Week 3..... 3x3 95%.........Rest............. 2x2 97.5%... Rest.......... Rest.............1x105%+

    Results: went from a 115kg to a 140kg squats after finishing the above cycle.

    How do you guys workout what no. of sets to use when doing this. I mean, if you're doing 5 reps... generally the go is to do 5 sets, right? 5 by 5. What about 2s, 3s, 10s, etc? I've seen 'prelepins table' but it doesnt look totally right to me.
    1rms: BP: 140kg touch'n go, MP: 85kg, Weighted Chin ups:60kg+104kg bodyweight. Squats/deadlifts: Injured, maybe 20kg each now (including bar weight).

    Don't overcomplicate it, just get some work in. Look at total number of reps, eg 5x5=25. Do 25-50 reps a session and see if one's squat is still stuck.
