Barbell Squat - Phase 3
Phase 3 Hypertrophy 1
Barbell Squat - Phase 3 - Hypertrophy Phase 1 - Day 5: Welcome to the final day of training in Hypertrophy Phase 1. Today we'll be focusing on quads, calves & finish off with a little bit of abs. Exercise 1 is the squat. The barbell squat is considered by many to be the King of all exercises & is an excellent mass builder. Make sure that you rest the bar on the mid to upper traps & not right up at the base of the neck. Have a slightly wider than shoulder width stance & the toes are slightly out. To initiate the exercise, the hips come out first. During the hypertrophy phase, we're looking at performing 5 sets of 15, 12, 10. 8 & finally 6 reps on the last set, each time increasing the weight. Rest only 2 minutes in this phase of training to keep the intensity high on the quads, but also allow us to recover between sets & be able to use a good amount of weight.
