    I actually have a friend who's done this over the past 4 or 6 weeks or so.


    I tried to convince him otherwise...but yeah.

    Is this working under the assumption that I'm not squatting that day?

    it works.

    the madcow 5x5 routine is based on this idea.

    it's not like 20 is the magical number, it's just nice to change it up from doing low reps all the time

    if you're used to doing 5 rep sets, doing 20 rep sets will help but it's really just because you're switching things up. don't let your body get into a routine ftw

    I can see the benefit of this.

    Squats and deadlifts are probably the most fully-active lift one can do (aside from some pretty complicated olympic lifts).

    It makes sense to engage in some high repetition movements prior to doing anything else because it gets the blood flowing, gets the metabolism going and it focuses on the legs... and it is said that working your legs helps the rest of your body grow.

    I'd be willing to try something like this. But I usually do a series of stretches and a few pullups before every workout day for this purpose. I guess squats would be better though.

    A true 20 rep squat will leave you so dead that you can literally do nothing else in the gym. You will have to leave.

    True 20 reppers take time, lots of time. They hurt. They are not to be done often.

    I did high reps squats for years but finally I felt like I kind of stalled out, I saw good growth, but you should def mix it up, as soon as I went more towards heavier poundages and less reps, my legs started responding again.

    Werd. It's not 20 reps of what you warmup with. It's 20 solid reps of what you think you can't do, but still manage to pull out of your ass.

    What sucks with this is that my gym's locker room is in the basement.

    So I take the elevator after a long and heavy leg day. :wtc:

    Oh, and I walk like I have a stick up my ass for the next 3 days too. :o
