I have a question regarding programming, and the frequency of squat cycles. After having just completed the most recent strength cycle you programmed for this site, would it be ill-advised for me to start another squat cycle. I feel like strength is the largest limiting factor for me at the moment. Thank you.

Steve - There's nothing wrong with doing multiple consecutive squat/strength cycles, although it's best not to repeat the same one twice in a row.

Thanks Greg. I was considering using the Hatch program similar to what you posted for Steve Pan, but adjusting the assistance work to meet my needs. Thanks again!
