First attempt to a 20 rep squats cycle. Triggering progress with lighter weights.
after warmup, 95kg x 20. Special feeling heh
Seated shoulder presses;
Skull crushers;
abs.

If you're gonna try 20 rep squats, you better start eating more brother!

Yup, trying to do that, but it's probably harder with work than training itself. But, I am not doing it three times a week, I am starting with twice a week.

Beefbuilder Elite (162) 2 x 1 MMS closed;
Vulcan level 15 (5-5) 3 x 2 CCS ( missed the second rep also doubtful closes on the last set);
In between Vulcan CCS work also IM3.5 deepset negative;

20 rep squats 90kg, legs were not on topstrength and only noticed on my workset that I had the wrong shoes on, my running shoes.
Felt very awkward. Finished the set though.

2 sets of pushups, pullups and pullovers to failure.

If you can do it twice per week, I can't imagine you being able to do any other training.  It is so brutal (as you've already figured out).

 

I tried the program once upon a time and had good results with it, but only did it once a week.

Well to be honest, I still did the reps with too much weight, since that kills form and weight adding, but I am more of a high rep guy than low rep. I seem to recover better from that that grinding out 2 or 3 rm's. The eating bit is harder actually for me.
