Could you survive this?

I did have a brief period where I was maxing at around 88 squats a session several times a week but it's not something I'd say was a great idea.

I would seriously consider taking this up as a challenge except it looks counter-productive to competitive powerlifting. Maybe this could be posed as a challenge for the bodybuilding inclined?

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

I did a 10x10 on squats once with 185 pounds. 8 days later I was still crying like a baby.

Interesting, though.

If I did I would probably look as sick and drained as the guy on the picture in the article, and be weak as hell =)




I think its possible to build muscle on that much volume if the rest of your life is very much in order and adapted to your training, not the other way around like it is for most of us.
