I’ve run this program twice now, and I really like it! Modifications: I don’t have access to a leg press or really anything other than free weights. I chose to replace the leg press with barbell back squats, and the leg extensions with rotating accessories that target the glutes and hamstrings. I’ve seen an increase of about 1.5 inches on each leg, and my high bar one rep max actually increased significantly, from about 290 to 325 pounds

The Candito 5 Week Squat Program is Jonnie's latest program to help you build up to a new 10RM (Rep Max) in the ATG Barbell Squat. This is an excellent hypertrophy routine for beginners and intermediates alike.

ATG (Ass to Grass, for the unaware) barbell squats builds strength, mass, flexibility, vertical leap, and moral character. It is perhaps the most dynamic movement that has the most carryover...yes, even if you are a low bar competitive powerlifter.

Be sure to watch Jonnie's YouTube video where he provides the full explanation of the program (linked in app).
