Hmm.. This sounds good. I used to squat once every 9 days or whatever SPBR has you doing and that was def not enough frequency. It's not so much anout the recovery as it is about the mental aspect. Training a lift that infrequent is not very good for practicing technique and I found I got pretty nervous on that day, as it would suck to fail the progression. Less need for mobility work and active recovery methods would save me a ton of time too.
Now I back squat once and front squat on another day, but I could up the frequency more. It seems to me like Tigerprawn has made the fastest strength gains IIT, and he did full body squatting 3x for a long time, right?
I'm getting increasingly interested in very high frequency like the bulgarian methods but I don't think there's any point to it as a "novice". Gonna reach some decent numbers and gain weight before I give it a go.
Also mirin Tigerprawn gains and it makes me regret going off SS even more. Not saying that SPBR is a bad routine but it didn't work for me that well.
Thanks guys, but I still have a long long long long long way to go before I even get close to guys like TK and Charly strength and aesthetic wise. I do think the squat volume helps a ton and the fact I was basically hitting PRs every other day by 5lb increments until I stalled out.
I didn't take pics of myself before at all, but I wish I did. All I have were candid pics to go off of and my legs before were crazy slim. You don't realize how much you've changed until you see an old photo.
Now I'm a 165lb manlet (granted bigger 165lb manlet than before) trying to claw my way back up in this bulk.
