I was also having a friendly race with a gym member to see if I could get my 600 before he got his first 300x1. The casual competition was a boost and eased a lot of the tension. We monitored each other’s progress on a blackboard, leaving messages for each other as we trained on opposite nights.

The 600-pound squat passed without comment and I peaked at 610x1.

To me, the breathing squat has its greatest value as a long-term bulk and power movement. It must not be rushed. If you do, burnout will surely ensue. If in doubt, start with under 200 pounds and use programmed increases – small increases. Allow yourself time to build a tolerance to the exercise and adapt to its demands.
