    Why exactly is it 20 reps? And would it work with other excercises, like bench, or deadlift?

    The 20-rep squat workout has been around since around the late 1920s, originally developed by Joseph C. Hise. Hise got massive off of this exercise alone, which is one he stuck with for many years and you can read about him more at http://www.americanpowerliftevolutio...HisePage2.html . He developed the squats+milk routine and had it as a mail order course for some time. As far as for other workouts, I'm sure you could with other compound exercises, like deadlifts, clean and jerks, and the like. Different things work for different people.

    My apologies, I thought I was on my bodybuilding board for a minute there.
    People powerlifting at comps at all.....

    Edit: 'and all' I mean :qswim:
    Some advanced lifters can get excellent gains off of singles, however.

    The only squats I ever do are "20 rep squats".

    Yeah, you can't realistically do it every single workout but you want to at least throw the 5 on and see if you can pump them out. Beginners probably can with ease, but intermediate to advanced lifters, no way.
