Overtraining isn’t what you were told
Hey, Matt Perryman here.
When it comes to recovery from workouts, you’ll hear two stories from the fitness experts.
Team Nanny tells you that you have to be careful because your body is just waiting to break if you challenge it in any way.
You have to keep your volume low, don’t go too heavy, and limit how often you train. If you don’t, you’ll overtrain and probably die or wind up with pointy elbows.
Then you’ve got Team Bro, who says that there’s no such thing as overtraining, that you just need to eat more and sleep more, and you can go buckwild on raw willpower.
I can admire the spirit.
But the truth is…
Both of these are flat wrong.
Let’s get real for a second.
The concept of overtraining has some good science behind it.
There’s a little weak evidence from physiotherapists who mainly deal with the injured and the ill.
There’s more weak evidence from exercise science, which shows changes in hormones and chemical signals after a workout.
But most of the warnings you hear from the fitness experts come from a risk-averse ‘nanny attitude’ not backed up by much of anything except fear.
If that wasn’t bad enough, nanny thinking encourages a mindset of mediocrity.
Truth is, many of the strongest, baddest lifters to ever put a bar on their back didn’t give a second thought to overtraining.
This is NOT only because of performance enhancing drugs. Many of the lifters I’m talking about, like Bob Peoples — who set crazy deadlift records back in the 1940s by training every day — lived before anabolic steroids were even available.
Still, you can’t just say that there’s no such thing as overtraining. That statement is ripe for misunderstanding.
If you believe it, you’ll end up doing real stupid things at the gym.
I don’t think hardly anyone benefits from 30 hours a week of exercise.
What are you supposed to do?
I’m glad you asked.
Squat Every Day teaches you how to grow past the nanny mindset without getting a full time job as a professional exerciser.
In the book we’ll take a look at the best current science tells us is going on in the human body in response to weight training.
We’ll see if we can’t get past the dogmatic thinking that misleads us.
There are serious questions about the ways we we think about our training, what it means to be recovered… and
What you can do about it if you want the biggest, baddest squat you can get.
Let’s face it, you aren’t reading this for the pure fun of it.
And I didn’t write it to look good on your book shelf.
Squat Every Day is about getting the most out of your body from what you’ve got.
Doesn’t matter if you’ve got “bad genes”.
Doesn’t matter if you’re skinny.
I want you to pile on muscle, get a bar-wrecking squat, and feel better than you ever have in your life thanks to the magic tonic of strength training.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Squat Every Day?
A book about frequent/daily weight training, first published in 2013 by author Matt Perryman, now widely regarded as an “underground classic” according to the many 5-star reviews on Amazon.
Do I really have to squat every day of the week? That sounds dangerous.
No, you don’t. The book isn’t about making you squat 7 days a week.
If you want to know more, you’ll have to read it.
Why should I read this book?
If you’re asking this question, you probably shouldn’t read it.
If reading a book is that much of a chore for you then I strongly recommend that you skip it. This ride isn’t for you.
You should read it if you’re interested in lifting weights and want to understand more about how your body works.
It’s a low-priced value-packed ebook with lots of positive reviews. We’re not talking about a serious commitment.
If you’re not a dull-witted circus clown who wants everything handed to him on a platter, you should be asking yourself why you wouldn’t read it.
What will I learn from Squat Every Day?
Here’s a few things you’ll find in the book:
* Why strength training is like practicing free throws
* How to overtrain yourself and feel better than ever
* The strange finding that makes your joints stronger when you train often (which explains why bodybuilders who train each muscle group once a week are always hurt)
* Why feeling sore doesn’t tell you hardly anything about how ‘recovered’ you are from a workout
* What squatting and the flu have in common… and why this means you should train MORE, not less.
Does this really work? Come on…
Don’t take my word for it.
You can read the many reviews of the modified Bulgarian squatting workout I lay out in Squat Every Day to see the eye-opening results people are getting from this method.
You have to see it for yourself. If you’re a chronic Eeyore who refuses to try anything, then you’re going to fail and I’d prefer you didn’t sully my excellent book with your foul attitude.
What you’ll learn about your body — how you move, how it feels when you lift super-heavy weights, how you recover from hard workouts — is more than worth the price of admission.
