So it's ski season, and after my first trip to the slopes on Sat, after a Madcow Friday (hypertrophy day), I realized I just can't squat 3 times a week and keep enough leg strength (or lack of fatigue) to ski at least 3 days a week as well. Need fresh legs for those slopes! Now, I'm still making gains with Madcow after only 5 weeks so I really don't want to drop it, so I thought about just cutting down on the squatting. But.. it seems a bit foolish to weaken what is essentially the most dominant (most performed) exercise in the routine.
I thought about just pulling back to squatting 2x a week, at lighter weights. Essentially removing the last and heaviest set. Basically just doing maintenance squatting.
Thoughts? Should I just pick up a whole new routine?
