Thoughts on “Squat Every Day”?

I seem to find a lot of programs with small things that differentiate each of them but the basis is to squat every single day with different rep schemes. What is your thoughts on these programs? Do you think it is beneficial?

Hey Mark, Thanks for the question.

When discussing any program the first thing to consider is what are your goals?
I will assume they are to compete in Strongman in which case I can’t see any way a squat everyday program would be the best use of your training time.

For 1 it is not a competition lift, having your programming focus around an assistance lift makes very little sense. there is no way you can squat that frequently and recover for all the other demands Strongman has.

The only time I feel this type of program is beneficial is if you are coming off an injury and are limited by the amount of upper body work you can do or are in an off season (not competing for 6+ months) even then there the aches and slight injuries that come from overuse by doing the same movement without adequate rest in between. You can see my video on 20 rep squats I did to hear more. After about 6 weeks my right hip was KILLING ME. Also after my body adjusted to not doing that frequency my max squat went back down 40lbs

TLDR squatting everyday will get you short term results on one specific lift but is not a smart way to train for long term health and strength IMO
