When it comes to building mass, the ’20 Squat’ program is one of the most effective and demanding regimens out there. Nearly guaranteeing you superior results. The program dates back to the 1930s when it was referred to as breathing squats. If you’ve done the program before, you know why. In the beginning, this program was just a four to five day workout, focusing on squats. Later it was modified by Perry Reader to include the full 20-rep breathing style squats.
So how does this program work?
The aim is for the lifter to use the weight that is currently their max for 5 reps for 20 reps by the end of the program. Sound crazy? Only the brave dare proceed.
