    Hatch Squat routine

    Has anyone here ran through the Hatch Squat routine (the one that has you squatting twice a week, back and front in the same session beginning with higher rep training)?

    I just got done with the first week, and the big thing I noticed is that I will have to back off volume on the lifts or face possible overtraining/inhibiting recovery. I just wanted to get a few others thoughts on this.

    Sorry, haven't done it though I did seriously consider it for a while. My problem was what you're describing - the certainty that I'd have to back off on the rest of my training to make it work within my modest recovery capacity.

    Very interested to hear what others have to say about this.

    Well, since no one has responded, I'm guessing nobody here has done or seen the Hatch squat routine. I'll give my thoughts so far (I'm into the 3rd week).

    The higher reps have been killer on the legs. I made the mistake of thinking I could keep up lifting on other days, but this week have really backed off the lifts. I suffered a large muscle knot in my right leg after the 3rd workout, couldn't complete the 4th and went in for a massage. She worked it out, and I almost completed the 5th workout (got all the back squats, but the fronts felt painful in the quad due to the massage). I should be able to make up the fronts for my 6th workout, but we'll see how it goes.

    I'll definately be taking some volume off of my lifts the next couple of weeks, but try and keep the intensity up. When school starts in 2-1/2 weeks, I don't know what I'm going to do yet. I'll have to work out at night (8:30 2 nights a week) then the weekend.

    Anyways, just a few thoughts on this program. I definately feel my legs getting stronger and bigger which is what I was after.

    I was thinking of doing this routine. I don't think I could manage much more than light form work while doing that.
