BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED PROGRESSION PLANS

30-DAY SQUAT PROGRESSION PLAN– BEGINNER FITNESS LEVEL

150 SQUATS PER WORKOUT BY DAY 30!

This progression list was developed for individuals who would like to safely increase overall squat quantity in 30-days. You must first watch the video on proper squat form or consult with Andre Turan about improving form prior to engaging in the routine.

It is crucial to follow this progression list as it is written even if you feel like you can do more.  DO NOT GO BEYOND THE SUGGESTED REPITITIONS.  The muscles might adapt quickly but the tendons involved in squatting need more time.  This progression list was mainly developed for protection of the tendons surrounding the knee joint.

This training was developed for progress to be attained during individual training sessions.  Do not practice this routine more than once per day!

 

If you feel that you need extra recovery:  For each additional recovery day that you take you must add days to the end of your progress.  For example; if you take an extra day for recovery, you will complete the program in 31 days instead of 30 days. 

If you take 2 ‘additional’ consecutive days of recovery (total of 3 days off) , revert to the number of squats recommended 1-week prior to taking the three days off. 

If you take more than 3 days off, start the program over from day #1 or attempt a training level that you feel is manageable without strain.
