Frequency of Heavy Back Squats
Quick background: 28 y/o male, 5'8". Ran cross-country in high school, marathons in college, then got into general weight lifting. I was 130# at age 22, am now at 180#. I've become a lot stronger than I was, which isn't saying much, but I'm no where near as strong as peers of the same weight. Current PRs:
Clean and Jerk: 193#
Back Squat: 245#
I know I need to focus on my back squat, because I don't think my other numbers are going to go any higher until a drastic improvement in the back squat.
My limit in the back squat has been that at the 95% range, my left knee tracks inward, probably due to a muscle imbalance.
I've been working the last 5 weeks on squatting 5 days a week, alternating heavy doubles/singles and lighter sets of 4-6. My goal is to get volume in through the week, but also just get comfortable being under a heavy bar often. I think there is a lot of value in "practicing" squatting heavy, if that makes sense.
I confidently hit a single at 95% yesterday after a pretty tough week, and plan to hit 100% next weekend after a similarly tough week. The week after that I'll be resting for a PR attempt the following weekend.
I'm starting to plan out my next training cycle and am looking for some advice. I am confident that hitting 85%+ back squat 3 times a week is going to be the key to advancing.
So my question here is why I don't see many programs, at CA or anywhere else, that train back squat quite within these parameters. Anytime I find myself being a "unique" case, I worry that I'm overlooking something or unaware of some broader school of thought. Has anyone tried this before? How did it turn out? Got any recommended resources?
