Twice a week:
First 6x2, adding a rep each workout until 6x3, then add weight and start over
Later in workout, 20% less weight, 3 sets as many as I can ,when total =25, up the weight
High bar, close stance, hip pain if I use a wide stance....

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

I squat 4-5 times a week. However, I am only doing a total of 20 reps - broken up however I feel like on the day - with 60-80% of my max. I retest my max at the beginning of the 6th week then take the rest off and start again.

I have a bad back (scoliosis) and bad knees (patellar maltracking, ITB friction syndrome). Frequent moderate weight squatting benefits these a lot.

Piriformis syndrome popped up for the first time ever recently, probably as a result of this frequent squatting. Piriformis syndrome is quite literally a pain in the arse, the piriformis muscle acts to turn the hip out as in a squat, it becomes inflamed and inflames the sciatic nerve, giving pain in the bum and sometimes down the leg. A spiky ball on the bum and foam rolling on the ITB deals with this very well, this sort of treatment has become maintenance for me.

One problem goes away, another appears. It's part of being an older lifter, especially one with a longish training history or previous injuries.

i have done squats 2x a week and 3x times a week and have found squatting 3x a week gave me more benefits in the terms of getting more form down and 2 inches on my thighs.I use a medium stance and a high bar,when i get back training i will be squatting 3x a week again.

Found this article on T-Nation. Hopefully it will help in clearing issues with frequent squatting. Worth read.

I almost posted a link to the increasing strength thread on that article, but assumed they might reject it.
