    SS squat question

    I only have 300 lbs or weight, and I have been doing the SS routine for a few weeks now. Ive gotten to 300 lbs squat 3x5 on the last three workouts, so my question is, should I add more reps? I don't have the funds to purchase anymore weight at this moment but i dont wanna be doing this for non reasons. Or should I just stick with 3x5 until i get more weights?

    That's awesome that you are up to 300 lbs. already. The program is based on progressing in weight, but if you don't have the weight, I'd just focus on rep work as you said for the time being. I'd make it a point to get some more weight though. It will be worthwhile. Of course, you wouldn't be doing "SS" anymore, but it's better then nothing.

    Are you going ATG on your squats? If so I'm impressed.

    There's got to be other stuff you can hang from the bar right? Car Tires, etc -

    Indeed, if you are not going as low as possible, Ass-To-Floor, then try that.

    Btw, i am seriously impressed that you are at 300 already. Im not even close and its been almost 5 months now

    No.

    Start going as low as you can. If you can't go any lower, add reps and/or sets.
