    Doing the 20-rep routine and eating six times a day put about 16lbs of muscle on me when I first did it within two months.

    Not saying it doesn't work, I'm just saying if someone's goal is overall strength and mass, hypertrophy is the best route to take. Also are you doing any other lifting aside from squats, and is the mass gain only in your legs?

    No other lifts besides the squats, it follows the website exactly. And no, when I finished with it, I had grown all over.

    Well I do know squats along with deadlifts are the most testosterone producing lifts. If it works, then by all means rock it out. I'm anxious to see the results.

    I teel you this, IF, you do the 20 rep squat like you are suppose to, you will NOT have anything left in the tank for a good 5 minuts minimum.
    You will be totally exhausted and your legs will be jell-o.

    You don't repeat 20 rep squats, you warm up to them (2-3 sets) and then you take it balls to the wall.
    If you can do more squats, you haven't done them right.
    You should basically collapse in a heap of sweaty **** and spandex.

    Yeah, he's definitely doing more weight Wednesday. Last night he only felt he could do about 100lbs (no prior weightlifting experience or real physical activity) but he wasn't hurting that bad afterwards, so being the asshole I am, I'm bumping it up to at least 130 :)

    Here's how he did for his first workout so far:
    Warm-Up (about 65lbs) for two sets of four reps
    Squats (20 reps with approx 100lbs)
    Pull-Ups 1/2/1
    Dips 2/5/3
    Crunches 60/50/45 (just regular crunches, we don't really have a place for him to do the inclines today)

    Not too bad, but we're definitely adding on more squatting weight as he was only on the ground for a minute or so.

    He should be able to squat he bodyweight.
    When he can, then, maybe, you shoudl go for the 20 rep routine.

    Being Sore doesn't mean he got a good workout. Don't burn him out, or it'll just take him longer to recover and risk injury. Moderation for good gains.

    I don't know of anyone who is NOT sore after the 20 rep squat, unless they are using light weight.
