H3 Russian Squat Routine

H3 Russian Squat Routine

This program is designed for an athlete to increase their 1RM Back Squat by way of the tried and true 6 week Russian Squat Cycle.  There is also a strong focus on the quick lifts and some other very important components of strength. The program is set up for 3 training days per week with the quick lifts, squatting and other facets of strength training. The additional work to be completed in a week can be done according to the athletes schedule and time available to complete everything.
