    What would you guys say I can do to change /improve how I go about dealing with squats? I feel like I get more cardiovascular fatigued faster than my leg muscles giving out. The exercise I’ve been doing is the heel elevated squats on the Terrence program. Would it be possible to change the rep and set scheme to more sets and lower reps? I see there is a possible of ~20 overall reps within the program of that exercise in a day, could I spread this exercise out to like 4 sets of 5 and going heavy? Would this change cause more overall body fatigue? If so, how would the load be like for each set since there is no rep scheme to do a back off rep scheme like how it is in the program?

    Also, would the different approach I mentioned defeat the purpose of pure hypertrophy?

    Definitely makes sense. Unfortunately I workout at home and I don’t own a hack squat. I guess I’ll just push through it and hopefully it gets better
