Default Squats and Milk Woes

As some of you may know, I wrote an article months back for Natural Muscle Mag called Squats and Milk, And Then Some. I basically put my simple twist on squats and milk. The workout looks like this:

Monday

* 20-Rep Squats
* Bench Press, 3 sets x 5 reps
* Barbell Rows or Yates Rows, 3 sets x 5 reps
* Seated Overhead DB or BB Press, 2 sets x 6-10 reps
* Romanian Deadlifts, 2 sets x 6-10 reps

Wednesday

* Deadlifts, 10 singles
* Closegrip Bench Press, 3 sets x 6-10 reps
* DB or BB Curls, 3 sets x 6-10 reps
* Ab Work, 2-3 sets

Friday

* 20-Rep Squats
* Dips, 3 sets x 6-10 reps
* Pull-ups (or negative pull-ups), 3 sets x 6-10 reps
* Upright Rows, 2 sets x 6-10 reps
* Standing or Seated Calf Raises, 2 sets x 10-25 reps

Exercises can be switched, of course. It's simply a template.

Anywho, long story short, I get a message from a young lifter:

Quote:
i just started on this..to tell you the truth, i didnt feel the effects as i expected to...on the squats, i started real light, though i felt the burn all over my body after around the 14th rep, i didnt feel that tired after i finished the squats...I thought il hardly be able to move after the squats and the deadlifts...is there something im doing wrong...
This is not the complete email. I replied and stressed that he keep adding 5 pounds on squats each workout. That would be 40 pounds per month, and 240 pounds in 6 months. I truly hope this youngster follows the program for at least 6 months. I'd like to see him go from..."This is to easy" to using my name as a curse word.
