Are we short changing ourselves when it comes to squats?
I have noticed a marked improvement in my squats by squatting very regularly. 3x a week (HLM), but also BW squats and Squat jumps on the off days. I do not work out on weekends.
Also why do deadlifts seem to be so taxing to even try more than once or twice a week (2nd time with a variation)? If squats benefit from more squatting (my hypothesis) why do deadlifts regress from more repetition, and I know they do from experience, when you deadlift more often? Do I need more variations in deadlifts to reap results? Or is it better left alone? Some say your deadlift increases simply by leaving it alone and increasing overall strength, ie squats.
