Well there are different schools of thought on the matter. There’s even a school that recommends squatting every day to a (daily) max. Yea, sounds crazy to me too, but apparently it can work.

I’ve gone through periods of time where I do a pressing movement every day. My highest bench ever came when I pressed every day. If your worried about your ability to recover don’t be. You will benefit more from being at an accelerated rate of recovery due to repeated stimulus than letting recovery taper off in order to chase “full recovery” (which doesn’t happen for 11-12 days). This book is one of the best strength related books out there, well worth the 7 bucks.

>what if hes squatting too much?

Really not a problem unless he’s squatting 7-10x a week. I refer most people to this book when talking about high frequency squatting. If he just wants to improve his squat more squatting is the way to do it.

>what if hes fat? its generally 1:1 protein per lbs of lean body mass.

This number gets augured about back forth so often that its not worth having the debate but for a myriad of reasons I generally err on the side of 2x/bw which is why I said minimum.

It’s fine. You can even squat every day if you want.

Well keep in mind some people also squat every day with good results. But 1-3 times a week is what most people do and it works just fine.

Fair enough. The high frequency programs I’ve seen recommend a bit more experience (2+ years) or access to a coach for the reasons I mentioned above.

That said, if you’re set on doing it and haven’t already done so, I’d read up on high frequency lifting. The Bulgarian Method from StrengTheory is a good intro and Matt Perryman’s Squat Every Day is excellent.

There are also articles and programs on high volume pressing work (example) but they are again targeted toward lifters with more experience.

> But man it’s ok, I don’t really care.

If that were the case, why reply at all?

>he has no business squatting heavy singles everyday.

I recommend reading this
