I performed 20 rep squats for the first time this month and I am amazed at how intense and painful they are! I have been lifting for about 10 months now and bench about 305 and Deadlift Conventional 350 but I never really squatted due to my height of 6'4. Instead I did leg presses only with a 700 pound max on these. I decided to try squatting after reading numerous articles on their superiority to Leg Presses. I didn't believe it until I squatted and felt extreme pain for 5 days afterwards. I never had DOMs with Leg Presses but after doing wide stance squats with 135x20 times and then 155x25 times I was ready to take some serious pain pills. I could hardly walk afterwards! The next 4 days were sheer hell as I couldn't walk without major DOM in my Glutes, Adductors, Hams and Quads. I swear that the DOMs pain is more than I ever felt in any training before in my life. It hurts! I am hoping that this pain equates to super growth as I will continue to move up 20 pounds each week doing 20 rep squats. I feel that I should be able to get up to 225 - 250 with 20 reps in about a month. We shall see.
