Question High Bar, Low Bar & Front Squat same week

What do you think? I'm on Marvin Eder style program and I thought about this idea squatting all this styles for getting stronger and bigger.
What do you think?

My thoughts are pretty much try it and see what happens. It might work great for you, or it might not work so well. Only way to really find out it to give it a run.

What's the routine look like? As Brute said, you're probably fine so long as you aren't doing too much volume and you give your body time to recover in the grand scheme of things. It's not uncommon for guys to do several squat, deadlift, or bench variations in one day-that's not the problem. The problem is when you do those several variations, several times a week, several times a month, etc., you can overtrain.

Note: There is a huge difference between overtraining and overreaching!

It depends on the volume and intensity. I would have to see the program. Frequent squatting is doable, but I do think it's something that should be eased into. Adjustments are often needed once you start the program.

Worth a go.

Id prob do each on a different session. Daily max style top set followed by some planned down work. Which would be periodized in some manner.

I agree. I'd also like to see how you would program this. How would you cycle the daily max and down sets? Do you have a set cycle that you use? Do you go by feel each day? Do you have percentages for the daily max and planned reps for the down sets?

I feel like there is an art to manipulating sub max singles and reps in anger. Probably only suited to each person, but I am curious about ideas in this area and wondering how you discovered what works for you. I feel like this would work for me, but haven't found the key to understanding this or using it properly.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Id simply work up to a single (or even 2-5) that was tough on the day. Id then just set down work of that as a %. Id have a phase were the down work increases in volume followed by a phase of increasing intensity.

I think squatting different ways could be good as long as you don't overtrain.
