No. 2: Squat More
The squat is the most all-inclusive of the “Big 3” moves. It transfers strength to other movements and produces a beneficial hormonal response for testosterone and human growth hormone (HGH) levels. Therefore, increasing the amount of times you squat weekly will be a huge factor in how strong you get. Take a page out of the Bulgarian method books and ramp up your low-rep squat sets up to a daily max. Do this at the end of your other workouts—the ones that don’t involve squats. You’ll be training heavy without enough volume, which will make you sore. By doing this, your nervous system will be stimulated, allowing your body to feel close to your max load several times each week. Remember, this is an advanced training tool; if you’re a beginner, it’s not for you. Use your discernment for what feels like a comfortable daily max—based on your physiology and how you’re feeling, it should change daily.
