    20 rep Squats, your thoughts?

    About to do 3x20 Front or Back Squats three times a week. Will my legs explode?

    I've tried it. Not a huge fan because I prefer heavy and lower rep, but it is a nice workout
    If you need help with a sports training (preferably football) program for lifting, speed or agility hmu and I'll help you.

    Yes. Look at the people who do SS, that's 45 reps of heavy squats per week, if you're gonna do 60 hard reps of squats per week, you can expect some serious leg hypertrophy.

    60 reps of squats per week? lol bro, it's going to be 180 . ^ ^

    Scrapping my entire leg workout and only performing 3x20 squats for a few weeks to see what happens; debating whether I should keep Squats to maybe 3x5,but Leg Press 3x20 instead so I'm not limited by my Upper Back/Core/Spine lol.

    I'm not sure about 3 times a week but I just did a 20 rep leg workout the other day and holy crap it felt awesome.

    I usually don't go higher then 12 reps, nice to switch it up a bit.

    Could definitely be interesting to give it a go, I just don't really like high rep squats.

    Building muscles= progressive overload+bodyweight increase.

    I don't see the point in going as high as 20 reps. Even 10 is too much in my opinion for a natural athlete. I wouldn't go any higher than 5.

    I used to do 20 reps for back squats, found that if you dont have good enough stamina you cant do enough weight to make it worth your while.

    So you do not contribute TUT to building muscle mass? The Time the muscle is Under Tension during any given exercise.

    ?????

    If this is true, then why not just use light weights and do more TUT?

    because you need mechanical stress as well.

    After about 8 reps it turns more into cardio for me and more stress on my low back than i would want. I like a heavy squat followed by high rep assistance (leg press, hack squat, leg ext etc.)

    What I'm getting at is there's a combination of factors. It's not merely one or two stimuli that effect us in a way to cause muscle mass to be built.

    As for the progressive over-load, I'd recommend trying it by increasing the workload session by session (if a target rep # was met), while leaving the workload at the given weight the same set after set. Just a way that I've found works well for myself.

    Depends on what you're referring to,if you're going to use your 20RM then no,the intensity is just too low.

    Your better bet is starting with your 10RM and then rest-pause your way(rack and unrack not breathing style) to a set number,lets say 40.

    More effort reps,more volume,more fatigue,more time under tension = muscle gains.

    pretty much this,or you could keep the total volume the same,lets say 40 total reps and work in a range(for example 8-12) and when you'd hit the higher limit(in that case 12) you'd up the weight.
