Squat workout: Suicide Squats

Squat workout – SUICIDE SQUATS: Start with your base weight. In the example below, it is a 45 LB Olympic Barbell. This can be adjusted to your fitness level. As the weight increases, your reps will decrease. After set 5, we throw it in reverse and strip off the weight as our reps increase. Rest between sets is kept to a minimum (30 seconds). This will keep your muscles flush with blood and pumped so it will feel as if they are ready to explode.

This is NOT FOR BEGINNERS.

This will NOT BE EASY.

You will THINK YOU ARE GOING TO DIE.

Get ready for a workout that lives up to it’s name…
