Stavross's super squat/dead


Hi there muscle talkers, tommorow i'll be starting the super squats old school 20 rep squat routine aiming to gain a stone or so over a couple of months. So far this year i reckon i'v added about 8lb of muscle to my bod' mostly on legs shoulders and back so i'm really gonna go for it with the food, milk and protien and i just got some CEE to help. I'm not too bothered if i gain a bit of fat during this time as i can allways cut it later.

I'll pretty much follow the routine in the Super Squats book exept i'll alternate 20 rep squats and 20 rep deads. about 2 workouts per week and aiming to add 2.5 kg to the bar each workout.

the routine go's like this:

military 3x10
squat/dead 1x20
pullover 1x20
one arm db row 2x15
bench press 3x10
calf raise 3x15

My starting weights will be 85kg for squats and deads and around 35kg for military's
27.5 kg db's for rows and around 60kg bench press.
if i can add weight each week then i will be pretty chuffed. I know for a while i'll be able to with the squats and deads as i've pulled back form over 100kg to get some momentum going. beyond that though will be tough for me.

Anyhoo, i'm off to bed for a good kip before my morning work out. seeya around, stavross

    It's a brilliant routine, i'd recommend everyone try it at least once in their training lives. I have used it before for strength and size and it really works. The idea is that you take your 10 rep max for squats and do 20 reps with that weight. i hve tried it that way but couldn't do it so i'm starting with a lighter weight.
    it comes from a book called super squats by Dr Strossen. good read.

    I was going to start thismorning before work but i dont have time now so i'll start tommorrow instead.
