    For conditioning, high reps.

    But for strength slow..

    I think I am gonna do KB's now, I had a look at the messages on here and seem to be positive about KB's

    I had a look at the goblet squat, NICE!

    I agree with you on the high reps issue. Working up to a couple hundred once or twice a week may be OK, or as a test once a month, but done every day they might mess up your joints.

    Hindu wrestlers did thousands every day, but they also a) had nothing else to do but train and wrestle and b) suffered from terrible joint degeneration in old age.

    Super Slow training has a following, but it never really caught on and the results claimed are highly dubious. The main alleged advantage of SuperSlow is that it's safer, as you use less weight and more controlled movements. However, doing an exercise with deliberate slowness is completely unnatural for the human body - Pavel analyzes this in one of his books, and I tend to agree.

    Body weight squats are a great exercise. If you want a good conditioning workout try tabata squats: 20 sec work 10 sec rest for at least 8 rounds. Absolutely brutal!

    Bodyweight squats are good for conditioning. Don't do them much anymore, but in 96 when i was doing mainly bodyweight, I worked up to a set of 500 per day, 5 days a week. I started out doing 100 in 4 sets of 25 each and worked up every week until I was doing the 100/day in 1 set. then I would add 50 to the daily total each week until I got to 1 set of 500/day. The important part thing to remember is no to lock your knees at the top of the movement. But other than that, you shouldn't have any problem with em. Enjoy.

    Frank Shamrock claims that doing more than 500 reps begins to damage the knee.

    Matt Furey's Combat Conditioning, which was somewhat lifted from Gotch, is an interesting and simple piece of conditioning. Gotch could do 10 000, if i remember right.

    Bodyweight squats truly are underrated. I've been focused on BW for strength and VWC for conditiong the last few months. My legs have not been as strong and conditioned as they are now in quite some time. The last time was when I was doing Judo on a regular basis. Then, my legs weren't huge (I do have natural size though) but they were dense and solid as tree trunks. Bodyweight squats have given me the same feeling of strength and conditioning in my legs but with more spring and better recovery. Another benefit is mental conditioning. Halfway through set number 4 of 30 reps (full squats from CC) life isn't too fun but it forces you (or me at least) to push through.

    I used to do up to 100 hindu squats in one set several times a week. Just because it's hard on one persons joints doesn't mean it will be on another persons. I don't remember any real discomfort with hindu squats.
