20 Off Road Squats
 
Started back on a simple 20 rep squat routine...
Started out very light.
Will add 10 lbs each session.
3 big breaths between EVERY rep.

My full routine looks like:

Day 1:
Bench - 3 sets for 20 total reps
Bar Dips - 3 sets for 20 total reps
Barbell Curls - 3 sets for 20 total reps

Day 2:
20 rep breathing squats - add 10 lbs every session
Back Raises - 2 sets of 12 reps
Prowler Pushes - 6 laps x 20 yards each

Day 3:
Rest

Day 4:
Chin-ups - Ladders (5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5+)
Barbell Rows - 3 sets of 20 total reps
Military Press - 3 sets of 20 total reps

Day 5:
Rest

Repeat...

Simple, but uber.

You're a lot more wise than I am, starting the 20 reppers at 145. I always started way too high.

That has been the downfall of many guys, starting too heavy. I have to swallow my pride, take the weight off the bar, and build back up. It's the only way I can build the momentum and get into big numbers without burning out. Things will get heavy soon enough.

I'll be following this as this '20 rep squat' deal is very intriguing.

I always started at 225 or in the past, and by the time I was finally building some conditioning the weight was getting too heavy. I'm sure you've done this too.

In either case, I think 145x20 is enough to stimulate quads :) Everything else is icing.

The dreaded 20 rep squat program, the most painful squat workout in the world but one of the most rewarding. I'm glad I did it but may never do it again! :)

Good to see you start light OR, can't wait to see you progress into some really heavy weight!

20 reppers and prowler pushes, my kinda man!

Good luck.

Taking the road less traveled... 20 reps AND starting off smart.

Looking forward to see how high you can push it!
