Sounds like the monster 20 rep squat training philosophy.
I did HIT for about 15 yrs after H.S.
Full body, 3x a week either increase reps or load.
Took about 9-12 weeks before I'd "hit" (pun intended) a wall and have to reset back to lighter weights and build up again.
Then moved to xfit type workouts for about 8 yrs.
Got bit by the oly lifting bug and my goal was 250# cj and 200# snatch before I expire.
Hit #250 pretty quick but only #190 snatch.
My best PL#'s around 19yo just after my senior year were
400# dead, 380 Sq, and 280 bench.
Those days are long gone, my spine tweaks easy now.
Time for the Look good naked plan.
Max performance is out the window.
What's your age V8? I'm a 69 model 383...(could be 318 now though). Haha.
