  • How to Squat Everyday with Success!

    How to Squat Everyday with Success!

    What if I told you it was possible to Squat Heavy everyday with very little risk? Would you believe me? I have been testing this method for about 5 years and it totally works for me. I want to share with you the key points to Squatting everyday for the average weightlifter or crossfitter. To be good at CrossFit or Weightlifting athletes must have strong legs.
