    How often do you squat?

    How many times per week should I be doing squats if I want to build muscle mass?

    I do it twice a week, because I like to allow at least 2 full days of rest before I hit legs again- so I work them every third or fourth day. But some people advocate that 48 hrs is all you need before you work the same muscle group, which would give you 3 times a week.

    Twice a week is good. 1x a week is too low, and 3x a week will lead to overtraining. Start with 2x a week and take it from there.

    Vision is purpose, and when your purpose is clear so are your life choices. Vision creates faith and faith creates willpower. With faith there is no anxiety, no doubt - just absolute confidence.

    There are two undeniable truths in life: failure and success. Unfortunately, everyone experiences failures before achieving any amount of success. Life is ultimately a giant trial and error test-you never really get what you want without putting up with the things that you dont

    What's the difference between back squat and front squat? Which muscles are worked more with the front squat?

    I squat 3x a week, but I'm not seeking hypertrophy. What's your overall routine. And to me, front squats hit your quads more.

    Depends on how fast you heal on up and how hard you are pushing yourself. Lately I have been going crazy on leg day and cant hit them again for another 4-5 days. If you feel up for it, just go and head hit them again.

    if i feel ready to hit the muscle again after 3 days i feel i have not hit them hard enough.

    I squat once a week, 3 x 8 currently, nice and heavy. Stop right before failing (or increase weight on progressive sets) currently use 290lbs
    Followed by 3 sets of lunges, (3 x 8) with nice heavy DB's, use 62.5lbs currently
    Since I am not flex enough to go ATG on squats, I usually do a set or 3 of weighted sissy squats. Plate of 25lbs on the chest.

    My quads are dead after this and I take a week to recover. My strength is not increasing really really fast, but it is going up steady. So is the size.

    I am thinking of squatting twice a week, but need to wait till after my keto cycle.

    I squat three times a week (on SS). It depends on what kind of program you want to do, and what stage you're at in the game.

    squats: 1x
    dl's: 1x
    leg machines: 1x

    I don't know how anyone can do heavy hardcore sets more often. I often have lower back pumps (pain) for 3 days after dl's.

    3 times.
    Have been on SS since june 09, and now have moved on to intermediate programming.
    Now I have a light, medium, and heavy day, so overtraining is not an issue.

    ya, 2 days is fine, your legs are huge muscle group. divide it up in parts & do seperate core lifts, like that guy said about front & then back squats, mix it up.

    3x will lead to overtraining? You should call up Rippetoe and inform him of his folly.

    Front squat is more biased towards quads.

    Another great answer.

    Most likely bad form, if you decide to get back into them.

    I'm envious. As of late, I'll hit it up 4-5x in a day, then go 4-5 days without. My rear is not in a happy place.

    Once a week. But I make sure those 5 sets of squats count

    My legs blew up squatting heavy twice a week and doing lighter sets once a week. Try that
    Eat. Train. Sleep. Repeat.
