WHAT IT IS
A brutal five-week squat challenge from Andrew Triana, co-owner of Performance Vibe, that will test your strength and endurance. Use any squat variation you like.
HOW IT WORKS
“This program taxes you in a way that creates very positive environments for muscle gain and fat loss,” Triana says.
WHEN TO DO IT
Anytime you’re ready to improve your squat, but “take four to six weeks before coming back to this,” he says.
Perform each workout twice a week. Rest two days between sessions. Begin Week 1 using 55 to 60% of your max. Add 10 to 30 pounds each week.
Go light during your first session of Week 5. For your second session, aim for a 20-pound increase. But “adding 40 to 50 pounds isn’t unheard of,” Triana says. Take your time to warm up and then select a load that’s between 20 and 50 pounds heavier and go for it.

Hi guys! Quick update to this last post 2 weeks ago. 2 Weeks Out Novice UKDFBA
So I thought I would share the photos with you – night before comp all tanned and ready to go (still waiting for show day pics).NIGHT BEFORE SHOW PHOTOS
Unfortunately, it as a tough novice class – with 5 other guys. Out of all the previous regional shows this year I had seen for this class, this regional show had by far the toughest competition of them all. Just my luck! I have to be honest, they certainly looked like they had a few years more over me in terms of gaining quality mass. For a novice, I actually felt out of place which I guess is every competitors nightmare on stage! (hopefully I will have some more photos up soon with the others), but I made the mistake of not having a proper off season before going into this.
How do I feel about the competitive aspect? Well, truthfully, I don’t think it is something for me. As a personal trainer and educator, I love the gym to build my body and I love to inspire and educate my clients to help them build theirs. But from a competitive aspect, the ball game changes. If you do wish to compete regularly and be good at it, it does need to be your primary goal, and you need to LOVE THE PROCESS of the prep (something which I didn’t enjoy and by the end of it all, I just literally stalled – both physically and mentally).
I will get a more detailed write up for you guys over the next couple of days. But I thought I would update you guys for now.
5”10 – 145 lbs
25 years male
I’m lifting 5 days a week and swimming 2 days. I get stronger every week and getting bigger arms chest etc. I can bench 200, curl 75, and push 90 on dumbbell tricep pushdown.
My belly is the only big thing and I believe it’s due to beer. I drank a lot of beer. I have decided to cut beer and sugar. It’s been one week of this and I am not missing either from my diet. I am also using creatine and mass gainer protein daily and I have gained 15 lbs in three weeks. My body looks bigger but my belly looks the same. It’s just a slow process to cut belly fat right? Am I doing something wrong? I know I’m rambling I’m just really focused on having a nice body 🙂
I saw he was a 4x going for 5 winner in something can’t remember what.. I don’t mean to take respect away but his delts looked awkward to me. Of course he annihilates me in every aspect but here’s my question.
How do some bodybuilders develop disproportionate arms as if they were synthold or something. He would be disqualified I assume if he did use some shit wouldn’t he? He had a sick chest arms everything but his shoulders looked so weird I couldn’t help it.
