I think of it as more of a test than an actual tool for building.

Everyone has things they'll likely never do. This is one of those, for me. That's all!

And as I kinda said, all the best to those who like this kind of thing. I also agree that for muscle building, it might prove useful. Or not. I actually have no idea, lol.
Was just teasing.

Oh. Well. Um. In that case, I'll go right ahead and do some 50 rep squats.

As penance.


Did occur to me as a possibility... after I'd already posted that. And there you go. Wrong end of the day, perhaps...


edit: Speaking of which, it's well beyond time for bed. Gotta love these hours (grumble, mutter). :/

Same here. Doing a set like that after squatting 300-400lbs for reps will kill a man.

Don't do them much anymore because I noticed I tend to puke after every set lol
